- Jim Henson believed that television and film could be used in a positive way to shape the thoughts of children and adults. He populated the neighborhood of Sesame Street with characters such as Bert and Ernie. Credit: Photo by John E. Barrett. TM & © 2007 SesameWorkshop. All Rights Reserved.
- Henson created his award-winning television series, Fraggle Rock, to help promote understanding and tolerance.
