I remember seeing the premier of that and was waiting desperate to see Kermit. When the rest of the gang read the letters from kids and Robin reads "We will miss you, Jim Henson" I sobbed my heart out. I still can't watch it properly. I am glad to know that I'm not the only one!

i don't remember it that well...but right after jim henson died, all the muppets except kermit were backstage of the muppet show theater, and they broke into a song...something about it takes one, then two, then four, etc.

it this the "saying goodbye" everyone is talking about?

MCC-where Kermit and the bookkeepers are going home for christmas and the camera pans past the bunny, wrapped in newspaper and shivering in the cold ***tear up every time :cry:
MFC-Jim Henson moment at the end and where all the muppets sing the 'everyone of us' BTW, what is the name of that song?
JD&M-when John sings the 'everyone of us' song
On the last 2 I think it hits me that these 2 people are gone and what a poorer place the world is without them.
MFS-when they show Gonzo's picture and he is all alone

Actually, saying goodbye is from The Muppets Take Manhattan.

The song you're referring to is "Just One Person" (I think that's the right title). The Muppets sang it on The Muppets Remember Jim Henson.

I have to agree and say:

"saying goodbye" always got me choked up.
but it was such a cute movie :smile: I love that movie.

and "rainbow connection" at the end of the muppet movie
is also a bit emotional.

"Saying Goodbye" always gets me, as well as the "I'm Going to Go Back There" scene from The Muppet Movie, and Kermit's scene that immediately follows.

The Muupets Celebrate Jim Henson leaves rivers flowing down my cheeks.

And in Fraggle Rock, there are quite a few, but the song "Petals of the Rose" and the scene in "Marooned" where Red asks "What do you think it's like to die?" both really get me choked up.
