Example 1: Daily Travels

Here I have uploaded a picture from my camera from what was on TV tonight. And in case you’ve been living under a rock the past 30+ years, its the Muppets! This is a scene from the 1999 film Muppets From Space. The Muppets will be the focus of my blog because of their recent blockbuste smas film. Now I don’t care how old you are, but the Muppets should always have a place in your heart, they do mine thats for sure. From a design aspect, just the idea and the creation of these creaures and what Mr. Jim Henson was able to create is a sign of sheer brilliance. The Muppets ability to humor, entertain, teach, and confuse all at the same time is honetly amazing.

Example 2: Magazine

Here I have a copy of TIME magazine from 1990. It was an issue made to honor the life of Muppets creator Jim Henson. After Henson’s passing, the show took a bit of a break yet his dream has still lived on. Since his death, the Muppets have grown into social icons, with such things as Kermit and Miss Piggy having their own Stars on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. After several TV shows and numerous movies, the Muppets have touch multiple generations of fans. Henson’s dra was to create someting for the entire family, something that would make everyone feel good. Jim’s deam has come true.

Example 3: Website

Here I’ve found and uploaded the main page from the Muppets official website. As shown in the photo, all these characters brin something t the table. I personally love this photo because it shows some of the classic characters from the original Muppet Show interacting with some of te brand new characters. They may be viewed just as a TV show or a fictional charcters, yet they are truly more than that. They are everybody’s friend. Everyone grw up with the Muppets. That is how Jim wanted it to be. The way tht every Muppet has their own characteristics and attitude is a work of genius. The new Mppets movie is an instant classic in my book.
