Now that is one of the reasons why they need the frog, , to return for this one-timed event. Because within His book of Look before you leap, he gave the "origins" of the Muppet show. Now my idea is having Brian Henson and the other co-creator of Sesame Street to give us the real "origin" of the show for the 40th anniversary special. All in all it would spotlight on Kermit and several of his muppet friends, and Robin. As they learn the history of SS and what makes it Special and how they are somewhat get to know the characters a little better. While all this is going on the "biggest" character on the street BIG BIRD, is missing, in fact he would come in like at the end in a surprising way, just like Kermit did in the Muppet's Truibute to Jim Henson special. All of this while we see just how important SS is to the entire world. So what do you all think of an idea like this ?
