Welcome back, friends! We’re officially halfway to Christmas, so we figured what better way to round the corner on 2021 than with some toasty, heartwarming Muppet goodness!
“A Muppet Family Christmas” first aired in 1987 with a whole host of musical numbers, and due to copyright issues the special has appeared in a truncated form ever since. Unless you know where to look online… We dug up an original broadcast on YouTube, and that’s what we’re discussing today! So join us for a trip down memory lane as we discuss “A Muppet Family Christmas”, commercials and all!
Also in this episode, we discuss our own history with this special, the history of the Hess Truck toys, and the tangled rights issues that prevent this special from possibly seeing an official release ever again.
