A Muppet Family Christmas is one of those Muppet projects that is horribly underrated. It was broadcast on TV back in the late 1980s and is available on DVD. Sadly it is not being printed anymore so the price is high and because of musical rights it is not the original broadcast, but an edited down version. This is a real shame, because the show is a magical Muppet extravaganza that takes characters from different shows and puts them together in a tribute to Christmas. I remember watching it and I was giddy to see the Sesame Street characters interacting with Muppet Show character and my mind was further blown when they threw the Fraggles into the mix.
Here is the scene where Kermit and Robin head down into the Rock to wish the Fraggles a Merry X-mas. Of course a song ensues…
If you get the opportunity to watch the special for the first time, look for a super special cameo towards the end of the show.
