The most tear-jerking Muppet moment...

    I don't know if someone mentioned this but for me, one of the most tear-jerking moments is when Big Bird's cousin, Abelardo, comes to visit and both lost each other. Then he and Big Bird sing a song, without realising that they're together. (My native languge is spanish, and I know I'm terrible explaining things in english).
    I'm grow up with Abelardo, but Plaza Sésamo show songs and other things from Big Bird too, so I love both so much.

    There's the video from the song:

    Yeah, it was my least favorite theatrical film, but I almost cried there.

    It's hard not to tear up when in the new The Muppets movie Walter is going through Kermits' old office room, seeing the banjos, pictures, and his tux covered in cobwebs. :)

    Not only did I want to cry, I was just shocked that they showed many memories and the history of the friendship Kermit and Jim Henson shared.

    I know! It was such a good memory-jerking montage.

    I teared up during the "Pictures in My Head" song from THE MUPPETS movie because it reflected how members in the audience felt about how long it has been since the Muppets themselves have been in pop culture.

    The opening credits of MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN always gets to me too when Kermit the Frog is scatting a version of "Together Again" over the skyline of New York City. There's something really innocent and pure about the combination of a singing frog and stock footage.

    Pshh I pretty much cried through the whole ending of the latest film. LOL! And as many times as I've watched this movie now I still cry in the same parts. I'm fine in the beginning of the film but right when Kermit starts to play Rainbow Connection the tears just don't stop until the credits roll. LOL!

    You know what? You're right! That was like so emotional to me. That Rainbow Connection got my mom emotional when we saw the movie last year, but you know what? Whenever I like hear this song or see the movie again, that moments definetely can get me emotional a little bit. I like really love that song! Soory about my speech! I am like really talking like Janice. Good grief!

    The song itself makes me sad. I just think about Jim Henson, his life, his work.... :cry:

    When Kermit opens the theater door and you see all the fans I thought "Jim your muppets are back and I hope your proud." :)

    Here's some of the most tear-jerking Muppet moments I had. :cry:

    . The entire audience singing "The Rainbow Connection" in The Muppets: A Celebration of Thirty Years

    . The "Sing" tribute by the celebrities, Sesame Muppets and cast members from "Sing! Sesame Street Remembers Joe Raposo and His Music" and Joe Raposo singing the same song on the piano in the final scene (This made me cry so hard)

    . The song, "Saying Goodbye" from The Muppets Take Manhattan

    . Ray Charles singing "Bein' Green" from Sesame Street: 20 Years and Still Counting.

    I hope these are great examples of these moments.

    I think it's "legato" tune, as in slow.

    That makes sense, but the lyric is "staccato". However, it IS Dr. Teeth and part of his shtick is taking grammatical liberties. Lol.

    Guess what? I have that song on MP3 from the Muppet Musicque website before it went down to nothing. Sad, but true. That song does make me sad, because I miss my friends, my grandparents, and everything I loved is now about to be gone.

    Just One Person, not the Bernadette Peters one, but the one for the Jim Henson Tribute.

    "I'm going to go back there someday" from the original Muppet Movie. And by tears, I mean happy tears. :'D That song, personally, was very powerful in it's simplicity.
