Trivia

The Muppets sing "Just One Person" in honor of their creator. "Just One Person" was a song that had been performer in many Muppet productions. The lyrics talk about how if only one person is there for you and believes in you, pretty soon other people will start to do the same. And before you know it, you'll believe in yourself, too.

A Muppets Farewell to the great Jim Henson
21 October 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

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.

This special tries to sum up Jim Hensons impact on the world in just an hour, and it does it in the best way...a way Jim would have loved. It had comedy, ethical questions, social commentery and about all else, it was a fun look at a life that ended far to soon.

The Muppets and they're puppeteers were never the same, they lost they're creator, leader and above all else...friend. They have tried to continue, with they're last great outing being the Christmas Carol. Everything else sadly fell short of the magic.

Those of us lucky enough to have seen the Muppets at the top of the game will never forget them, and we will always enjoy what they have done.

And as the children's letters all said, we all miss you Jim, the world became an emptier place without you.
