The Muppets Continue To Pwn The Internet
7 April 2009 | by (India) – See all my reviews

I discovered this a long time ago by accident, but failed to share it with the world! How was I supposed to do that in '94? Anyway, I had Sesame Street on in the background with the volume down and "It was a good day" playing in my room. It synced so perfectly.Maybe it's time I post some of my homemade http://www.sitedejeuxenligne.com .I remember seeing this special when i was 5, the year it aired. I couldn't quite understand what was going on or who Jim Henson was, at that age i still thought Kermit was real living breathing creature! That is the magic Jim Henson could weave with the help of every single member of his production team.Seeing this again, nearly 20 years later and i still remember every word, every single word said about him.As the special progresses you can not only hear but you can feel the emotion from every performer, the love they all had for Jim and how much its breaking they're hearts every second while they made the special.
