    *hugs* Awww. That's so sad. I'm sorry and I know how you feel. That song used to really choke me up. Another one that used to get me is Gonzo singing 'I'm Going to go Back there Some day'

    Yes, Yes, Yes I agree with you about Gonzo's song. One of my favorite songs.:concern:

    Yes! It's full of bittersweet longing and as he rasps it out, you can't help but be moved.

    I can tell you I cried like a baby when rainbow connection played in the movie. I'm not ashamed to say when that song started the tears just flowed.

    Awww *hugs* That's sweet! And that was actually a really kind of a touching moment. Not just because of what it meant in the movie but because of all the nostalgia and memories wrapped up in all of us old timer fans.

    Yeah it took me back to my childhood or how I miss being a child and how time just goes by so fast but if anything I got emotional because I miss Jim Henson so much. :(

    Yeah :/ that can dredge up a whole slew of emotions that you didn't even realize were tied into all of those old songs and characters. I guess that's the thing about fandom. Something that touches you for whatever reason when you are a child, it somehow becomes a part of you. Even when you grow up, it doesn't go away. Inside of you, all of those things you learned and assimilated over time are there....sometimes forgotten or untapped....and then a hint of music or a glimpse of the past can set those memories in motion and before you know it....you might be crying or laughing or staring wistfully....But whatever it is, you feel it all over again.

    I kind of love that.

    As cliche as it sounds I don't think I realized how much the muppets influenced me as a child till I saw this movie.

    I think one of the tear-jerking muppet moments for me was this:

    *slings an arm around ya* Hey kiddo, you've been kinda blue these few days. You need a pick me up!

    Well it's not exactly a happy day. :p
  14. bandit

    bandit Well-Known Member

    Of course it isn't, but Mr. Jim Henson wouldn't want everyone to brood about that day. He'd want to know his legacy was carried on....with smiles and music and zaniness. So snap out it it, girl! Or ELSE!

    It's still ok to be sad...anyways I don't wanna derail the subject here so... I think another tear jerking moment probably the last episode of the muppet show. Maybe not tear jerking but still sad noneoftheless.

    Tearjerking moments in all the movies:
    The Muppet Movie, The Great Muppet Caper, and The Muppets (2011): Finale
    The Muppet Christmas Carol: When Tiny Tim (Robin the Frog) sings Bless Us All
    Muppet Treasure Island: When Kermit and Miss Piggy are singing Love Led Us Here
    The Muppet Show: Bernadette Peters singing Just One Person

    And for the MOST tearjerking? I'd say Robin singing Bless Us All.

    This was a tear jerker to me because this was Jim Henson's last singing performance as Kermit on Sesame Street. :cry:
