September 24, 2011 would have marked legendary puppeteer Jim Henson's 75th birthday.

The man behind The Muppets was a groundbreaking TV and film pioneer, who changed the landscape of children's programming.

From Kermit the Frog to Miss Piggy, and the Cookie Monster, Henson introduced the world to some unforgettable characters. In tribute to Henson, Google has dedicated their landing page doodle to him.

Kind words and memories have also been pouring in on Twitter.

We've shared a clip of one of our own favourite characters below.
