My Morning Inspiration...

Many of the things I've done in my life have basically been self-taught. I think we, as the Muppets, broke new ground because we approached puppetry from a different angle. I had never worked with puppets when I was a kid, an even when I began on television, I really didn’t know what I was doing. I’m sure that this was a good thing, because I learned as I tackled each problem. I think if you study- if you learn too much of what others have done, you may tend to take the same direction as everybody else.

I loved Jim Henson. I was actually a young teenager when Sesame Street started but I still watched because it was so new and different from the cartoons I watched as a child. My kids grew up with Big Bird and Cookie Monster and now my grandchildren will do the same. He was brilliant and I don't know if he realized it.
