    I couldn't listen to it for a whole month after Jerry's passing.

    I would say that the John Denver & the Muppets version of "When the River Meets the Sea" always makes me a little teary. So does "Saying Goodbye" from 1984's TMTM and "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday" from the 1979 Muppet Movie.

    One of the saddest moments in The Christmas Toy is when Ditz the clown gets frozen; the whole playroom mourns at his "passing", and near the end, he miraculously "comes to"....

    Equally saddening is the moment when Rugby sings a sad song for Mew the stuffed mouse; Dave Goelz's performance (as Rugby) is somewhat reminiscent of "I'm Going to Go Back There Someday"; fortunately, Mew is not frozen forever, and turns out to be alive...

    The very sad moment I had was when Mew was frozen (I LOVE that little guy) and the song Rugby sang was sweet (maybe bittersweet), but that was the part that tugged my heartstrings the most.

    I recently edited and updated the post to include that moment as well (see above)....

    I feel Together At Christmas is equally tear-jerking.

    I couldn't agree more, Vincent. My heartstrings got tugged by this song when it was sung by all the Muppet families in "A Muppet Family Christmas" and it gets me misty-eyed. (sniffs)

    If this doesn't make you cry, you have no soul.

    Well, both of the Studio DC specials had me crying throughout. :p

    But seriously, the one moment that really makes me cry (and that's an accomplishment considering that I don't cry much at movies and that sort) is the TMS theme song rendition in The Muppets. It was at that point in my first viewing that I really felt the movie hit me, that this is it. The Muppets are back around.

    So now, out of tradition, I tend to cry during that scene. It's just special to me for some reason.

    my most touching moment is when robin sang "halfway down the stairs" in the first season on TMS, when beaker gives Mr. Scrooge his scarf in MCC, and "We could do it all again" from the the muppets.

    Thanks muppetlover123, I've never seen the title written out, only heard the song in the context of the film. *Blushes sheepishly*

    Now that is definetely the first Kermit :) song I heard when my mom introduce to me to the Muppets. Yeah, the song is a tear-jerker, but I finally have that song, the one from the Muppet Show and SS thank goodness.

    I was never that big on "Bein' Green," and then I saw the video of Big Bird singing it at the memorial and I was so touched.

    "Saying Goodbye" from The Muppets Take Manhattan is a real tear-jerker, but on TMS, I'd say Gonzo's version of "My Way" (in the Lola Falana episode when he leaves the show for an acting career in India) and "When I Grow Too Old to Dream" (from the Linda Ronstadt episode) are right up there, too.
    Honorable mention: the version of "When the River Meets the Sea" that Jerry Nelson and Louise Gold performed at Jim's memorial (if memory serves correctly).

    YAAAYY!!! 1000th post on this thread.:D

    I actually got a little teary eyed at the new film... when Kermit steps off the bus from his choir practice... made me think of Henson (couldn't help but think that was a little nod to the man himself)
