    In answer to your question, Punk, the last time I saw the show it was run by Mr. Hanford, but I haven't seen it in a while so I'm not sure. According to the TV listings, I think it's now run by some guy named Alan.

    Is there no way we can get this depresing 'most tear jerking moments' away from the top? No one has replied to it about tears for sooo long. Will it stay here forever?

    "Say goodnight, Gonzo."

    This isn't so much tearjerking as poignant in an understated sort of manner, but it's been on my mind since I mentioned it in another post of mine.

    It's in the George Burns episode and I'm willing to bet it went over a lot of kids' heads, but many adults probably smiled understandingly.

    George gets into a conversation with Gonzo. George feeds Gonzo lines and questions and Gonzo keeps coming up with these loopy, circular-logic responses. Finally, George says, "You know, Gonzo, you remind me of someone I used to work with."

    "Wow!" Gonzo says. "You mean Walter Matthau?"

    "Yep," George answers with a sad little smile. "That was her, all right."

    He was, of course, referring to his wife and partner Gracie Allen, who had just that style of humor, who predeceased him, and who he missed until the day he went to join her.

    Very understated, but awfully sweet when you realized the joke.

    Most tear jerking moment? It's a toss up between the end of THE MUPPET MOVIE (Where all of Henson's muppets sing) & the wedding scene in THE MUPPETS TAKE MANHATTAN.

    Always get chills and choke up during those...

    Here goes:

    Rainbow Connection

    I'm Going to go back there some day

    Life's like a movie


    When Piggy leaves from the dance number


    Saying Goodbye (especially at the end because it makes me think of Jim Henson dying)


    Tiny Tim being dead and piggy crying


    Love Led us here


    I'm all.....................alone.


    Piggy as the cat lady...it was SO SAD! She was so lonely and sad that she became obsessed with cats...it was really easy to relate to her loneliness and I felt awful watching that. :(

    When Fozzie realized that he had the wrong bag and had failed Kermit. Just the look on his face and the way his voice sounded was so sad.

    I've got a new one.

    I was having the traditional Thanksgiving viewing of A Muppet Family Christmas the day after Thanksgiving while I was cooking my Thanksgiving dinner (I had to work Thanksgiving day). When Fozzie started singing "I'll be home for Christmas" I burst into tears. Spending the Holidays alone and away from your family made me realize how wonderful being "home for the holidays" really is!

    (I also cried as always through "when the river meets the sea" in Emmet Otter, but I always do that)

    I just watched 'Emmet Otter' for the first time and as soon as i heard 'When the River meets the Sea' starting, tears were welling in my eyes!
    It was also sad when Fozzie lost the bag of money:(
    and I've said it before and I'll say it again, John Denver and the Muppets, A Christmas Together...every time i listen to it!
