Jim Henson, In Memoriam

In Memoriam of the Day

The legendary Jim Henson passed away 21 years ago yesterday. The Summer 1990 issue of WD Eye — Walt Disney Imagineering’s employee magazine — contained the touching tribute above by Disney artists Joe Lanzisero and Tim Kirk.

It’s been noted, but not corroborated, that the original cartoon was captioned “I know what it’s like to lose my dad, too.”

Big Bird’s tribute to his “dad.”:
