Jim Henson impacted American popular culture like few other storytellers of the 20th century. His life and legacy — from Sesame Street to The Muppets and beyond — was the topic of a recent installment of In Their Own Words, a new biography series on PBS that explores an “elite few” of the 20th century’s greatest figures through original footage and deeply personal interviews. You can watch the program here.
