(Newser) – A Google Doodle today pays homage to Muppets master Jim Henson, who would have been 75 today, notes the Huffington Post. You can manipulate the six digital puppets to do some tricks—the guy in red loses his glasses, and the one on the far right eats his neighbor. No audio apparently, but clicking the left mouse button make them move their mouths. (Which lots of YouTubers are doing with background music to make it look like they're singing.) Google did the animation in cahoots with the Jim Henson Company. (Click for more, and to see a video about the doodle.)
