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
Though this special may seem easily found online, it is actually quite the opposite. The original television airing had numerous scenes and songs that have been removed from US video release due to the rights of characters and franchises being dispersed amongs different companies. The Muppets no longer share affiliation with Sesame Street and The Fraggles lay dormant, therefore this special cannot air on television without obtaining licenses and the home video releases have to be heavily altered to avoid any legal disputes. In other countries the original uncut version can be found but still incredibly rare and has sold for upwards of a hundred dollars through online auctions. See more »
Beaker does not appear during the first half of the caroling medley. He then suddenly appears when he and Dr. Honeydew sing a verse, and he is missing again in the last shot of the medley. See more »
Kermit, now can I tell you about my new act?
I'm all ears.
[hears Sprocket barking]
Now what can that be?
What does he mean he's all ears? Frogs don't even have ears!

A brief segment where Fozzie and Elmo light the Christmas tree only appears in the original 1987 version. See more »
My favorite parts are when The Swedish Chef tries to cook Big Bird, Fozzie tries to fine everyone a place to sleep, and Bert and Ernie put on a Christmas pageant in this great Christmas special that includes every Muppet Jim Henson had created at the time. Jim Henson himself appears at the end, and even Elmo can be seen in the background, although he doesn't have any lines. There are several Christmas songs sung by the cast, that take up most of the time in this story, but this is a great addition to anyone who is a fan of the Muppet Show, Sesame Street, or Fraggle Rock.
