Everyone on Sesame Street is cheerful (except Oscar the Grouch, of course) because it's Christmas Eve, but arguably no one is more excited then red, furry, little Elmo, who is determined to stay up all night and meet Santa Claus. Big Bird is saddened that Mr. Snuffleupagus is going to Cincinnati to visit his grandmother for Christmas, but he assures him he'll be back the day after. Elmo does manage this year, but is surprised when Santa gets stuck in the chimney. Elmo pulls him out, and he is frustrated at Lightning, a fast-footed young reindeer who hopes to pull Santa's sleigh one day, hiding in his bag of toys, which made it so big it couldn't fit through the chimney. After scolding him, Santa explains to Elmo that when he pulled him out of the chimney, he saved Christmas and offers him a magic snow globe which gives him three wishes (he picked it over a pink bear). After wishing for a glass of water,he wishes it would be Christmas every day. Suddenly, all the businesses are ... Written by
Let's see, there is some good here...a cute reference to the old 'Wonderful Life' rumor surrounding the origin of Bert and Ernie's names, Kermit the Frog has a new newsflash, some classic Sesame Street characters and humor.
But theres a lot of things that make this special mediocre at best. It's a bit too long, Santa Clause is grumpy (and his beard looks more fake than some mall santas I've seen), Harvey Fierstein sings, Bert and Ernie don't even talk, and it's just not as good as the old Sesame Street Christmas Special. It just feels like fluff.
