Jim Henson, artist, puppeteer, freaky long-haired dirty cynical hippie, and source of a large percentage of what was good in our (and I daresay your) childhoods was born seventy-six years ago today.

You may also have noticed that Elmo is prominently featured next to the YouTube logo today.  We have no idea whether these things correlate in any way, but you can watch Elmo’s new YouTube interview below. There’s also something for those of you who think he’s a “furry red menace,” too.

Susana Polo
Susana Polo thought she'd get her Creative Writing degree from Oberlin, work a crap job, and fake it until she made it into comics. Instead she stumbled into a great job: founding and running this very website (she's Editor at Large now, very fancy). She's spoken at events like Geek Girl Con, New York Comic Con, and Comic Book City Con, wants to get a Batwoman tattoo and write a graphic novel, and one of her canine teeth is in backwards.
