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.

Kermit meets and falls in love with her secretary, Miss Piggy. The jewel thieves strike again, and this time frame Miss Piggy. It's up to Kermit and Muppets to bring the real culprits to justice.

When Kermit is dancing on the bed during the "Stepping Out with A Star" song, the shadow of the puppeteer's arm is visible on the wall behind him. See more »

At the opening of the film, Kermit, Fozzie, and Gonzo are riding in a hot air balloon and commenting on the opening credits. Sample dialog: "Wow, a lot of people worked on this movie.", "Nobody reads those names anyway, do they?", "Sure. They all have families." See more »
This film is definitely a comic masterpiece. A great improvement over the earlier MUPPET MOVIE, which seemed more like a faltering first step into feature film techniques; this has a strong plot, bright characters and keen timing. It also has great support from the comic greatness of John Cleese, Joan Sanderson, Jack Warden, Robert Morley and Peter Falk.
Diana Rigg and Charles Grodin (in his best movie) manage to hold the central human characters together, up against the bright lunacy of the Muppets. Lady Holliday's expression on seeing Miss Piggy enter in her swimsuit is worth the price of admission alone!
PS: My mum just loves the bit where Kermit does up his zipper!
