    Well I thought it was really good but I think they would have done better with maybe two or three of them there. They kind of all got overshadowed by one another. Also where was Telly and Zoe?

    Did they ... uh... take over the first hour more than the second?

    I mean this in no offense, but does anyone think it's kind of too soon for the gang to be reunited like this ? I mean they just lost Jerry Nelson, and I can understand if they couldn't make it. :(

    I don't understand your logic.

    Agreed. They lost someone close to them, but that doesn't mean they have to stop performing in mourning. They have a show to promote, and I'm sure Jerry would have rather seen them carry on performing than just take an overly long moment of silence.

    I apologize for the confusion, let me try to explain...I'm surprised to see the show continue on despite the lost of Jerry Nelson. I mean I know it's a weekday show, but why not have a moment or two to grieve. :cry:

    It worked for Mickey Mouse and Disney's Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show.

    They did not stop the show when Jim, Richard, David or Will Lee passed away.

    With all due respect to Jerry they've had their time to grieve and while I'm sure they still miss him and always will as the saying goes "the show must go on." You can't just stop because someone past away. Eventually you need to move on. That's like saying The Muppets shouldn't have went on after Jim past away.

    Then once again I do apologize, as i was young almost 5 years old when Jim died and I didn't understand the whole "death" thing until I was a bit older. Sorry for the confusion.

    I'm really upset I missed this I had every intention to wake up in time but my stupid alarm didn't go off. Guess I'll have to catch clips online. :/ By the way I think I see David Rudman's legs in that picture to the left. Lol

    The fact that Big Bird was there just makes it even better to me. :wisdom:

    Everyone's personal grieving time is different. Some of us hurt longer than others when someone truly amazing has passed. And yes, I'm sure they still miss him too, since it was last month they lost him :cry: and this fan is still feeling the hurt. And he will indeed always be missed.
    It's much too early to move on...and I don't know if ones that knew and loved Jerry would put it that way, anyway...but I'm sure they'll strive to do performances he'd be proud of.
    There may come a day when they simply live on in video, and that's not necessarily a bad thing. Even when they stop one day, they will live on, performed by Jim's crew, on video forever...and the performers will live on in our hearts...
    I appreciate your kind words for Jerry.

    These Sesame Muppet characters are on the show acting normal because they don't know any better...only their performers know about this terrible recent news.

    But much like the quote one Mickey Mouse voice actor said to another, (something like, "We're all just filling in for Walt") no one can ever replace Jerry. You just listen to that wonderful voice, and the soul he put into his characters, and there's no denying that.

    Man I could kick myself for not being up in time for this. Although and this is a minor thing and I don't mean to knit pick but did they really have to use the "M" from the Muppet logo at the beginning? :/

    That's not really my point and I didn't mean in anyway that they should stop grieving for Jerry a lot of us still are and always will but as someone said they have a show to promote and that doesn't mean just because their still in the mourning process they shouldn't perform. I don't think that's something Jerry would have wanted.
