For the first time in their careers, all the Muppets (except the ones that couldn't make it, like the Doozers, Gorgs and most of the Fraggles) have gathered together in one place to celebrate their thirtieth anniversary and honor the one who brought them together: Kermit the Frog (and by doing so, Jim Henson).

When this special re-aired on Nickelodeon, the opening title card was cut; the montage subsequently went directly to the first scene following the first commercial break. Also edited was the position of the commercial break intro that originally occurred after the "Pure Imagination" song: on Nickelodeon, it was moved to after the previous scene: the "Galley-oh-hoop-hoop" scene.
