John Paul Henson (April 25, 1965 – February 14, 2014)
(USA today) – John Paul Henson followed his father, Muppets creator
Jim Henson, into puppeteering, and sadly, to an early death.
The younger Henson, 48, fell victim to a sudden heart attack Friday
at his home in Saugerties, N.Y.
John was the puppeteer behind the ogre Sweetums (below).
Sweetums is perhaps the most popular and well known of
the Muppet monsters from The Muppet Show.
