Jim Henson would have turned 75 Saturday.
Google was kind enough to pay tribute to the late Muppets creator with its latest Google Doodle: an interactive puppet show featuring six original characters.
By using their mouse and keyboard, users could make the characters do a range of things such as looking around and opening their mouths.
One youtube user made a video (HERE) showing off their secret tricks! A lot of people made music videos featuring the little Googuppets. HERE's a popular video of them singing along to Lady Gaga's Poker Face!
Henson may have passed away, but his characters (Miss Piggy, Kermit, and Big Bird) to name a few) all live on.
The popularity of his creations — and even this tribute — proves his creative spirt is still very much alive.
