John Henson was the son of puppeteers Jim Henson, best known as the creator of the Muppets, and Jane Henson, who assisted in the launch of the Muppets. He had four siblings: Brian Henson, Lisa Henson, Cheryl Henson, and Heather Henson.
John performed Muppet character Sweetums starting in 1991 following the death of Richard Hunt (who trained John Henson in performing Sweetums). The role has since been passed to different puppeteers (Sweetums no longer has a consistent performer), including David Rudman, Noel MacNeal, Rob Mills and Matt Vogel.
