Jim Henson, the relentless innovator who gave the world Kermit the Frog and "The Muppet Show," is getting a permanent tribute in New York, nearly 30 years after his death. If rarely seen on camera, Henson lived and breathed television, hooking adult Americans on puppets, turning puppetry into prime-time entertainment and for 25 years gave life to Kermit, the world's most famous puppet. The exhibition brings together more than 300 objects, among them a Kermit, and more than 180 items bequeathed to the museum by the Henson family.Henson demonstrated that innovation time and again with short, Oscar-nominated surrealist film "Time Piece," 1965, then with "Dark Crystal," "Fraggle Rock" and "Labyrinth," which starred Davie Bowie.For more information on The Museum of the Moving Image's "The Jim Henson Exhibition," see: http://www.movingimage.us.
