    Lily and I think that Jim s grandma must have been pretty cool, her nickname was Dear and she was the one who inspired him the most We think it was amazing that Jim and his family didn t get their first TV until he was 13 years old Jim and Jane had 5 children, he encouraged them to be creative and even let them color on the walls of their home They also made themselves costumes out of Muppets fabric, how cool is that We love Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppets, our favorite is the Swe Lily and I think that Jim s grandma must have been pretty cool, her nickname was Dear and she was the one who inspired him the most We think it was amazing that Jim and his family didn t get their first TV until he was 13 years old Jim and Jane had 5 children, he encouraged them to be creative and even let them color on the walls of their home They also made themselves costumes out of Muppets fabric, how cool is that We love Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppets, our favorite is the Swedish Chef Jim and Frank Oz performed him together, the Chef s hands are actually Frank s hands Jim had a pretty amazing imagination to figure out things like how to get Muppets to ride two wheeled bicycles and Kermit to sing while floating on a log We think it was cool that he put a TV monitor behind the stage so the puppeteers could see what the Muppets looked like from the audience, Big Bird actually has a TV monitor inside his belly We both wish we could be kids on Sesame Street.We think it s amazing that Sesame Street is still going strong afterthan 42 years it s too bad The Muppet Show only played for 5 TV seasons It was a sad day when Jim died unexpectedly, he was only 53 We watched some of his funeral on youtube, everyone should check out all the Muppets who sang tributes with their puppeteers that day
