Muppet Google Doodle Honors the Birthday of Jim Henson

September 24th is the Birth date of the late Jim Henson, best known for creating and voicing many of the beloved Muppet characters. Today, Google remembers what would have been Jim’s 75th Birthday with a very cool (and interactive) Home Page Doodle, seen above (Hint: click on the colorful “hand” buttons, from left to right, under each Muppet icon for a fun surprise). The Google Blog also has a very endearing remembrance of Jim written by his son Brian, which you can read at This Link. Happy Birthday, Jim!
