Muppets Holiday Special Review

So last nite I raced home to curl up on the couch to watch the Muppets holiday special - A Muppets Christmas "Letters to Santa". Notable guest stars included Uma Thurman, Jane Krakowski, Nathan Lane, Jesse L. Martin, Michael Bloomberg, and Whoopi Goldberg.

As a HUGE Muppet fan I have to be honest. I thought it was good, but it wasn't their best. I have to say it felt a bit different. Some of the latest Muppet movies have a different feel. However, I did enjoy the singing and the adorable outfits. Um, Muppets in sweaters and winter apparel - a favorite of mine every time.

One character that stole the show was Pepe, the king prawn. I've like Pepe for quite some time and have always been a fan of his comedy. But last nite, as he stood in the security line at the airport and dumped out all of his electronic devices I roared in laughter. He unloads his pockets saying "Blackberry, Blueberry, Rasberry . . . Halle Berry." All were "electronics" except for the picture of Halle which he kissed before placing in his TSA security box.

In the end I'm always glad to see the crew anywhere. They are always awesome, and I can't help but feel like I'm four every time I see them. Dan will tell you, last night at 7:58pm I sprinted into the living room screaming "two minutes till the Muppets. M-U-P-P-E-T-S!!!" They always make me smile, and for that I am so grateful. Did you watch it? What did you think?

Yes, Pepe was indeed hilarious--I never really had an opinion about him one way or another, but he definitely stole the show! I missed Animal and I thought the songs could have been better, but it was cute for a one time watch. Mostly it made me want to watch A Muppet Christmas Carol though. I just LOVE that one!

I didn't see it. How terrible.

I've always been a fan of Kermie, Animal, the blond in Animal's band, and Ralph.

And occasionally Miss Piggy.

When she isn't stalking Kermie. =)
