John Henson, the son of the late Muppets creator Jim Henson, died on Friday after suffering a major heart attack. In addition to being a shareholder and board member on The Jim Henson Company, Henson was also a puppeteer and craftsman, best known for his work as Sweetums the Ogre in Muppet Treasure Island, It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie, and The Muppets’ Wizard of Oz, and various other muppet specials. In the picture above, he’s with his family, dressed as Sweetums.

Rest in peace, Mr. Henson. Here’s some of his best work, in a battle of insults with Sir Avery of Macho.
