Once you hear the name "Jim Henson," you also know the name "Kermit the Frog."
However, Kermit had to eat Jim Henson's heart first.
The Jim Henson Company posted a post on social media to commemorate the late puppeteer's 75th birthday:
That's right, the Henson Company, known for creating some of the most beloved puppets in pop culture history, including Kermit the Frog, Sesame Street, Sesame Street, and Muppets and friends, posted this amazing story of a paper doll Jim Henson took as a present to this year's British Academy of Film and Television Arts ceremony, also known as BAFTA Awards.
"Kermit the Frog had to pick the child from its twin, unfortunately, due to a natural play pattern caused by the television for many years. The mini puppet was placed back in the box. Turns out Kermit quickly realized he was in trouble and proceeded to eat its twin. HAPPY BIRTHDAY," the post read.
We're in tears.

If you can't watch Jim Henson: Art of the Possible without an emotional reaction, go here for a movie about the puppeteer.
In addition to Jim Henson the puppet appearing at the BAFTA ceremony in 2018, he also turned 75 on Christmas Day 2018.
Shout out to the Muppets creator and Kermit the Frog for saving what would have been Jim Henson's heart!
