Several versions of A Christmas Carol, It’s a Wonderful Life, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Die Hard all have their charms, but nothing will ever top the Muppets and the Sesame Street gang and the Fraggles all celebrating the holidays together.
I defy even the most unsentimental person not to shed a tear near the end, when the great Jim Henson himself shows up. How we could use him today.
As of 2018, The Muppet Show, Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock are all owned by different companies, so we shouldn’t expect to see another show like this anytime soon. But their IP lawyers have enough Christmas spirit that they’ll turned a blind eye to its presence on YouTube.
Have a great Christmas, and best wishes for 2019.
