    Let's say that the henson company wanted to do a 2c.d. set featuring a Jim Henson tribute with characters from,muppets,sesame street,fraggle rock,etc....how would you do it?here's what I would do...

    disc1-tribute concert-featuring singers(rock,pop country etc) comedians and much more in a concert filmed for dvd and recorded for c.d.,I would have it be adult oriented (not rated "r" or rated "x")but not like the elmopolooza where everything was kid oriented,I would have comedians like robin williams and conan o brian,rock stars like paul mccartney and ozzy osborne,everyone would do some sort of cover tune or skit parody,or they would just say something nice about Jim,I like the idea of throughout the program going through Hensons lifefrom birth to death (these sections would be on the dvd version) with footage from his first programs to his last movies,I would have frank oz and other muppeters,the whole concert would be about 3 hours long (the dvd version would be the complete concert while the c.d. version would just be highlights of songs and skits.)I would end the program with a john williams henson movie medley (or someone like that) with music from dark crystal, labrynth,witches etc... Iwould also have lucus and spielberg talk about hensons movies...

    disc2-the best of jim henson-this disc would be a carrer highlight disc with recordings of jim from the early years up to his death,I would put 25-30 songs/skits (assuming some of the skits are only a minute long) and it would be nothing but jim doing voices from all his series,muppets,SS,fraggle rock etc...
