Trivia

The Muppets sing "Just One Person" in honor of their creator. "Just One Person" was a song that had been performed 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.

"Take what you've got and fly with it."
3 April 2003 | by See all my reviews

I think it's safe to say that this is perhaps the last great Muppet work of art that exists. In this television special the Muppets pay tribute to the Muppet Man and my life-long mentor and inspiration, Jim Henson. For anyone who remembers the old Muppets and for anyone who considers themselves a true Muppet fan, you can't miss this. Look for it to buy on E-bay.

Jim Henson died in May of 1990, this aired in November of the same year. It must have truly been the hardest thing for his friends to do and I think that's what makes it work. The emotion is real.

Some people thik it's good that there are people who can continue to produce Muppet Films, but if you've seen these new films you've no doubt felt the loss of a great presence. The Muppets have never been the same since. And never will. So enjoy them, for the last time, as they were in this special. I know I do.
