Brian Henson, the son of famed Muppets creator Jim Henson, was rushed into his father's position as head of the company when the elder Henson died unexpectedly in 1990 at age 53. Since then, the third of five children and eldest son has forged the Henson-Disney relationship (Jim Henson had sold out to Disney in the 80s) and has won mostly applause for both invigorating the Muppets franchise and branching out into new areas, such as the Emmy-winning NBC miniseries "Gulliver's Travels" (1996).

QUOTES FROM Brian Henson CHARACTERS

Jack Pumpkinhead says: [To Dorothy] May I call you Mom, even if it isn't so?

Jack Pumpkinhead says: May I call you Mom, even if it isn't so?

Hoggle says: [sadly, after Sarah broke free from the crystal] Oh, she'll never forgive me. What have I done? I've lost my only friend. That's what I've done.

Didymus says: [finally entering the castle] Well, come on then!

Sarah says: No! I have to face him alone.

Didymus says: But why?

Sarah says: Because that's the way it's done.

Didymus says: Well, if that is the way it is done, then that is the way you must do it. But, should you need us...

Hoggle says: Yes, should you need us...

Sarah says: I'll call.

Hoggle says: Them's my rightful property. It's not fair.

Sarah says: No, it isn't. But that's the way it is.

Hoggle says: You have to understand my position. I'm a coward. And Jareth scares me.

Sarah says: What kind of a position is that?

Hoggle says: No position! That's my point.

Sarah says: Ow! It bit me!

Hoggle says: What'd you expect fairies to do?

Sarah says: I thought they did nice things, like... Like granting wishes.

Hoggle says: Shows what "you" know, don't it?

Hoggle says: Shows what 'you' know, don't it?

Sarah says: You're horrible!

Hoggle says: No I ain't, I'm Hoggle.

Sarah says: And you wouldn't be so brave if you'd ever smelled the Bog of Eternal Stench. It's, it's...

Sarah says: Is that all it does, is smell?

Hoggle says: Oh, believe me, that's enough! But the worst thing is, if you so much as set a foot in the Bog of Stench, you'll smell bad for the rest of your life. It'll never wash off.

Hoggle says: What did you have to go and do a thing like that for?

Sarah says: Do what? You mean rescue you?

Hoggle says: No! You kissed me!

Jareth says: And Hoggle, if she ever kisses you, I'll turn you into a prince.

Hoggle says: Y-you will?

Jareth says: Prince of the land of stench!
