Thanks so much! There's a color Version of this pic I'd love to get my hands on hehe.
I'm not sure if you know this or not but Jim didn't want to do the TMNT movie at first his son Brian talked him into it. But I'm so glad he did it will remain a fave of mine forever.
The reason I think I wish Jim was still alive was because he was progressing his own characters and pupperty into a direction it had never been before.
Sadly now we don't get such crazy things like he did on the Jim Henson Hour. The Muppets now are sort of stagnant and have become tv game show fodder. :\
Thanks Again! & R.I.P. Jim!

Sweet!

*salutes to Jim*

The color version of that is on one of the movie trading cards, but it's cropped smaller.

So awesome!!

I really wish some of the muppet crew had taken over and sent the muppets in a different direction. I don't think that Brian Henson really has an idea of how they work, or lets to many executives talk HIM into doing things he's not to sure about.

Some of Muppets in Space is almost cringe worthy now. I mean, a Spice Girls referance? Who knows who they are now? :)

WPLJTV,
Brian isn't in controll of the Muppets anymore & hasn't been for a few years now.
Disney now owns the Muppets and they have even less of a clue what to do with them.
