Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with today’s Behind the Scenes pic!
I never said all of these behind the scenes pictures would be from feature films. Today’s comes from TV that I’m wagering knocks the majority of you upside the head with a closed fist filled with nostalgia. And possibly a little sadness.
Sesame Street and The Muppets were a huge cornerstone of my childhood. Jim Henson was almost like an unofficial father to me growing up. His work instantly sends me back to a simpler time.
So any smile I get from this great behind the scenes image of Jim Henson and Frank Oz doing their thing is bittersweet, tinged with a pang of regret that we lost him way too soon. But let’s not get too misty-eyed. It’s an amazing pic of a brilliant mind at work. Thanks for sending it over, David.
This one came to me in a pretty decent resolution, so you can click the above for a bigger version.
We miss you Jim!
If you have a pic you think should be included email me. I’m looking for the iconic, the rare, the just plain cool behind the scenes shots to feature here.
Tomorrow’s pic is for the birds. See ya’ then!
