Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
In this beloved holiday classic, Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all the Muppets join the singer for a heart-warming Christmas celebration, with traditional carols as well as lesser-known holiday songs.
When Fozzie and the Muppet Show gang drop in unexpectedly on Fozzie's mother, she is forced to cancel her winter vacation plans and entertain them all. Soon the Sesame Street gang comes by as carolers, and then Kermit and his nephew Robin discover a Fraggle Rock hole in the basement. A snow storm blows in, stranding everyone at the house, except for Miss Piggy, who arrives just in time for all the Muppets to celebrate Christmas together. Written by
Though this special may seem easily found online, it is actually quite the opposite. The original television airing had numerous scenes and songs that have been removed from US video release due to the rights of characters and franchises being dispersed amongs different companies. The Muppets no longer share affiliation with Sesame Street and The Fraggles lay dormant, therefore this special cannot air on television without obtaining licenses and the home video releases have to be heavily altered to avoid any legal disputes. In other countries the original uncut version can be found but still incredibly rare and has sold for upwards of a hundred dollars through online auctions. See more »
Gonzo and Animal are both shown wearing pajamas while hanging from hangers, but at one point during the caroling medley, Gonzo wears a purple suit and is with the other Muppets. Then after singing his verse, he is missing for the remainder of the carol sing. See more »
Oscar the Grouch:
Hey everybody, quiet down! There's a bulletin on TV!
And now, for this news flash: the worst blizzard in 50 years is approaching us at a great rate. The Weather Service reports that barometers are falling sharply.

Oh no! Whoa...

I remember seeing this special when I was younger and I recently acquired the video. I've watched it a few times already. It's so cute and involves all the muppet characters (including fraggles and Sesame Street characters). My favourite parts are when the turkey tries to 'woo' Camilla and when the Swedish Chef tries to cook Big Bird. It's very amusing. And of course, Miss Piggy must make a grand entrance! I highly recommend this movie if you are in a giddy or childish mood. Every child I know enjoys this video.
