Alternate Versions

The version on HBO Max cuts out the short playing of Jose Feliciano's "Feliz Navidad" in the skating rink, likely due to licensing and royalties. It also severely cuts Cookie Monster's burping fit at the end after eating the Christmas tree. See more »

A Tender Sweet Christmas Special
19 December 2020 | by wm-tuckerSee all my reviews

My kids grew up on this special and it remains as wonderful as it does timeless. Oscar's nasty question gives way to a presentation of the magic of Christmas. I love it even more now in my '60s with my grandkids growing up in a world where it feels tenderness and kindness are in short supply.
