The Magic of Jim Henson

"…But you also have that raunchiness at times, and that kind of allows it to be enjoyable at any age. I absolutely love Jim Henson's work, even with the Sesame Street puppets and all the films he did like Laughter and Dog Crystal. But yeah, I'd love to hear some of your stories about those moments that you've had with Jim Henson's work as well.…"

"…Hey, Matt, I am one of the kids in that first generation who got to watch Sesame Street in real time season one. Right? And season two, as it was happening, it was a big relief to my mom, so, oh, yeah. They were a big part of my childhood and grew up got to see the Muppet movie in the theaters. The Muppet Show on TV.

"…So I'm excited not just to have been this conversation, but also, I'm so excited about how we create the next generation of Sesame Street, the evolution, the mutation of it so that we can empower children, especially today with all the social emotional learning issues that are going to stem from this global pandemic and quarantining and lockdowns.
