Brings back great memories

I first saw this when I was about 4 and I've watched it every Christmas since. It is still entertaining, funny, and heartwarming. From the opening scene at the ice skating rink to the songs to Big Bird's exchanges with Oscar the Grouch. Oscar the Grouch's song is great: "I hate Christmas". Probably the best in the whole movie is Bert and Ernie's scene with Mr. Hooper. Such a shame he died.

Kermit the Frog is funny, too. These were the good days of Sesame Street, before Elmo-mania.
