A Muppet Family Christmas (1987)
Jim Henson loved to mix his characters
That's what I loved about Muppet productions when Jim Henson was alive. Sesame Street muppets appearing as guests on The Muppet Show and in the three Muppet movies made between 1979 and 1984, occasional references to Muppet Show characters on Sesame Street (such as a photo of Miss Piggy in a Western Saloon sketch, and in "Monster Piece Theatre"). Even poor old Kermit seems to be forever trying to keep both Muppet Show AND Sesame Street characters under control in both shows.
This Christmas special is amazing. Animal is impressed with Cookie Monster's similar antics (commenting, "That's my kinda guy!"), The classic scene with the Swedish chef trying to cook Big Bird, etc.
I don't think things were ever the same after Jim Henson passed away.
