Mickey Consoling Kermit, 1990


Illustration by Joe Lanzisero and Tim Kirk (Source)

After Jim Henson’s sudden death on May 16, 1990, people across the world remembered “The Muppets” creator with tributes and honors. One of the most touching is an illustration by Disney artists Joe Lanzisero and Tim Kirk. In the tribute to Henson, Mickey Mouse is shown with his arm around Kermit the Frog, consoling him. The black-and-white illustration appeared in the Summer 1990 issue of WD Eye, Walt Disney Imagineering’s employee magazine.
