Family Tree

The illustrious Henson royal family has left an indelible mark on the entertainment industry. Headed by the late Jim Henson, who never thought his venture into puppetry would capture the imaginations of generations to come, his most beloved creation, The Muppets, has captivated audiences from around the world. His son, Al Brian, grew up with a deep understanding of this craft and while he initially pursued other paths, he too was pulled back into the puppet-verse. His wife, Jane Henson, was an actress and a co-founder of the Jim Henson Company. His daughter, Lisa, is a producer and actress, who has recently worked on Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio (2022). Heather, his other daughter, is a producer and actress, and Cheryl, his youngest daughter, is an actress, best know for her work in Labyrinth (1986) and The Dark Crystal (1982). His son, John, was an actor and producer, known for his work in Muppet Treasure Island (1996). The legacy of the Henson family is a truly remarkable one, and one that will live on for many more generations.
