Jane Henson, Muppets co-creator and partner of Jim Henson, lost her battle with cancer yesterday. And, according to this supercut made by Squigiman (which coincidentally premiered on the eve of her death), the Fraggles totally saw it coming. In nearly all 96 episodes of Jim Henson's Fraggle Rock, Red and the gang discussed or alluded to death in some way. If this two-minute compilation isn't enough of a mortality reminder for you, there's also an 18-minute version. Carpe diem, y'all!
