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.

A great way to deal with a hard subject
14 November 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the saddest movies I have ever seen. Filmed after Jim Henson's death, the Muppets work to discover information about Henson so they can plan a memorial.

In typical Muppet fashion, the muppets have taken a difficult subject and found a way to handle it in a touching, funny, and sad way. I love this movie!
