I was there on my first visit to Disney World for the filming of this. Saw them three separate days. Got to say Hi to Jim Henson, and watched some guy bump into him as he was walking away. Stood there for hours watching them film the finale in front of the Chinese Theater. Got to talk to Richard Hunt a little bit, and I'm really happy I got that opportunity. They were the funniest most creative people I've ever seen.
That's really cool! I remember seeing that special years ago, it definitely had some nice moments. Having seen it again recently, I noticed that Richard Hunt actually has a brief cameo appearance, in the audience during the Indiana Jones show, lol. Can I ask what he said when you talked to him?
