Entertainer. He is best known as the creator of the "Muppets". He began his career on a Washington, DC television station on a five-minute program called "Sam and Friends." The appearance of Muppets on the show "Sesame Street" (1969) catapulted Henson to nationwide popularity. His subsequent television shows ("The Muppet Show" in 1976, and "Fraggle Rock" in 1983) and films--The Muppet Movie (1979), The Great Muppet Caper (1981), The Muppets Take Manhattan (1984)-gained international recognition. His characters include such well-known figures as Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Big Bird, the Cookie Monster, and Snuffleupagus. He co-directed motion picture "The Dark Crystal" (1981) and directed "Labyrinth" (1986), two films that did not include the use of Muppets.
