So the Muppets are now in the U.S. Film registry including a scene from the 1979 Muppet Movie. Growing up with Kermit and the gang this is awesome, and just another honor for Muppet creator Jim Henson. Just wish he was still with us.
Also this year the Thriller dance will also go into the registry. (insert Michael Jackson Joke here) It is the first music video ever to be inducted.
So now both of these are in the registry, and both I have vivid memories of. I can remember seeing The Muppet movie in the theater, and watching Thriller on MTV tons of times.
I can't figure out if this means that Gen X has finally made their mark on the fabric of our society, or that we are just getting old.
