Jim Henson is the name that most people associate with The Muppets. But as they say, "behind every successful man is a woman." That woman for Jim Henson was his wife, Jane Henson. Yesterday she passed away at 78 years old.

Jane Henson was a big part of the development of The Muppets until she took a break to raise their five children. She had been battling cancer when she passed away in her Connecticut home.

Over the years, The Muppet Show had seen some pretty spectacular celebrity guests.  In honor of Jane and her work with The Muppets, here are a few of my favorite performances from the show.

Johnny Cash

Kenny Rogers

Linda Ronstadt
