Had he not sadly passed away in 1990, Jim Henson would be 77 today. But his work lives on, and with a new movie due out next year, The Muppets are continuing to entertain new generations. Today we're celebrating Jim Henson by sharing some amazing facts about his most famous creation: Kermit the Frog.
We like to think of the Disney parks as places where we can always find all of our favorite Disney characters, from the biggest stars to the most obscure bit players. But there's only so much room in the magical kingdoms, and characters who don't drawn a crowd often disappear to make way for characters promoting the latest movie or TV show from the Mouse House.
The Disney characters are a big part of what makes the Disney parks experience special for most kids and more than a few adults. Sometimes you only have time for a hug and a photo before the character moves on to the next guest and you move on to see how long the line at Space Mountain is. But sometimes, time and circumstances allow the characters to do something really special and surprising. Here are ten of the best examples of Disney characters being just a little extra awesome.
Remember cringing in terror while a pair of vultures chuckled about your impending doom? Remember screaming as the log you were riding dropped down into a flooded briar patch? If you do, then you remember Splash Mountain, one of the top thrill rides at the Disney parks since 1989.

Welcome, foolish mortals! If you're anything like us, then no trip to Disneyland (or Disney World) is complete without at least one visit to the Haunted Mansion. The Mansion's 999 happy haunts have been scaring and delighting park guests since 1969.
