The Muppets perform six classic fairy tales: Three Little Pigs, King Midas' Golden Touch, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, Rumpelstiltskin, The Emperor's New Clothes and The Elves and the Shoemaker. Hosted by Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat.
Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
When Fozzie and the Muppet Show gang drop in unexpectedly on Fozzie's mother, she is forced to cancel her winter vacation plans and entertain them all. Soon the Sesame Street gang comes by as carolers, and then Kermit and his nephew Robin discover a Fraggle Rock hole in the basement. A snow storm blows in, stranding everyone at the house, except for Miss Piggy, who arrives just in time for all the Muppets to celebrate Christmas together.Written by
During the fade right before "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" during the carol sing, the puppeteer that performs Camilla and the Christmas Turkey drops both puppets too early. See more »
Don't you think we should've called your mother and let her know we were coming?
Oh, how little you understand bears, Kermit. My mother loves surprises.
Well, good, 'cause she's in for a beauty.

In the latest video release, the following scenes were deleted:
A very funny joke scene between Fozzie and his snowman.
Rowlf playing the piano when he first arrives at the farm house.
Piggy singing "Home for the Holidays" when she's first brought to the farm house and slipping on the icy patch.
Statler and Waldorf's" I Heard the Bells on Christmas" song.
When the Muppets watch the film strip of themselves as the Muppet Babies, the cute scenes of them singing and the adults complimenting on it were cut and it goes right to Animal bursting through the screen.
Mrs. Bear putting up Fozzie's stocking, Fozzie says he's too old for that stuff, but doesn't want her to take it down.
During the medley at the end, Kermit and Piggy sing, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas".
It is not Christmas without this movie, i just wish the full version could be found. I have two different versions one I bought, the other taped. The one I bought has an extra scene that the taped doesn't have, but the taped one has an extra scene that the video doesn't. I LOVE THIS MOVIE. I can watch it all year. We need a little Christmas, right this very minute....
