Days of Disney Past: Jim Henson and Sweetums

This wonderful photo from 1990 shows Jim Henson giving Sweetums some direction while preparing for the grand opening of Muppet*Vision 3D. The attraction opened on May 16, 1991 and is still open and delighting crowds at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.


  • I grew up admiring everything Jim Henson or his production company created. I loved the quirkiness of it all and still do. Thanks Jim, I think of you and smile.

  • Muppet*Vision 3D has my vote for best pre-show video of any Disney attraction. We miss it in Anaheim.
