The Muppets

The muppets were such a big part of my life when I was kid. I remember every week we would watch "The Muppet Show" it always made everyone happy.

I always wondered why they didn't run "The Muppet Show" again. I think kids and adults would still love them.

Much to our surprise last night we watched a brand new muppet special called "Letters to Santa" and it was so funny and cute!

Here is Kermit singing "Rainbow Connection" to make you smile.



So, since I was looking online for muppet videos - I thought I would see if there was anything on "Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas". Does anyone remember that Christmas special? It is probably my favourite Christmas show as a kid (o.k and as an adult). They used to play it all the time but I haven't seen it in years....luckily I found this video.



Oooooh...now I am really excited - I just found the DVD on Amazon - and I ordered it!!!! Ha ha ha! I am such a nerd.

Hey, you do what it takes to keep you happy and going - "Emmet Otter's Jug Band Christmas" does just that.

Ash and I watched the Muppet Special last night, It was pretty cute, and super cool, he had never seen Muppets before and was actually riveted by them. I am going to need to get some Muppet DVD's now. Amazon.on or Amazon.ca?

Awesome post, BTW.

Love the Muppets! Although I was more of a Sesame Street kid. Sesame Street, Electric Company, Mr. Rogers, and Commander Tom were the big shows for me as a kid.

Oh, and Friendly Giant too.

*sigh*

Oh I loved the Sesame Street and Friendly Giant too and Mr.Dress Up - Mr. Rogers totally weirded me out though - what was with the sweater dealio!

My father-in-law?

Looks and talks JUST like Mr. Dressup.

I had to do a triple-take the first time I met him, and stop myself from going "SQUEEEEEEEE!!! IT'S-MR.-DRESSUP-OH-MY-GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOODDDDD!"

Which can be quite off-putting, as a first impression, I am sure.
