Have you Googled anything today? If you have, you likely noticed the Google logo was gone. Instead, six googly-eyed muppets were staring back at you.
The muppet animations are really simple and limited in range, yet they are so lifelike. It might be fun to poke around with this Doodle this afternoon, especially if you have little ones running around. (It’s raining here in Chicago, so for me, this really will be a Rainy Day Activity. I may stage an entire play!)
Puppeteer and creator Jim Henson would have been 75 years old today; his visionary work continues to inspire.
Meanwhile, in Leland, Mississippi, the town is celebrating Henson’s life and work by renaming their bridge ‘The Rainbow Connection’. Leland was Henson’s boyhood home.
