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.

The Muppets say goodbye to the man that gave them life
17 October 2000 | by (Lotterville, MI) – See all my reviews

This special, filmed and aired the same year of muppet creator Jim Henson's passing, was both sad and uplifting. It was sad watching the characters, and obviously the muppeteers behind them, mourning the loss of Jim. On the other hand, it was nice to know that the muppets would live on. Many people didn't know that Kermit the Frog would continue after Henson, and it isn't until the end that he shows up. Another reassuring sign that the spirit of the Muppets will live on, even if some of them sound a little different.
