I`d like to read a book sometime. I`ve never read a book before. That`d be an adventure. I understand they have pages and everything. Yeah, I`ve got to do that sometime.

 

If you look at a lot of the pieces on "The Muppet Show" (1976) that came from Jim, there was a tremendous sweetness about them, and that`s unique to Jim. Jim was never wimpy. He had a strength to his sweetness... that was great.

 

The middle 3 letters of his car's license plate are "PYK", for Piggy, Yoda and Kermit. It is believed to be a coincidence, because it is a standard DMV-issued license plate, not a vanity plate.

 

Was replaced by John Lithgow in the radio adaptations of Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back (1980) and Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi (1983). Lithgow also appeared in the Broadway musical based on Dirty Rotten Scoundrels (1988).
