WTVD’s 1987 Broadcast Of A “Muppet Family Christmas”

Muppets Family Christmas
Thanks to Brad Christian for not only uploading the Muppet Family Christmas for our viewing pleasure but for leaving in the commercials during this 1987 broadcast to boot. You can thrill to the TV ads for the likes of Leonard Part 6, Pinochio and the Emperor of the Night, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Sledge Hammer to name just a few!

With the release of the Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas Podcast today it seems the perfect time to enjoy more Muppet related entertainment!

    Like I said on the comments for this video, I really wish we could get the uncut version of this amazing special in this quality….

    It’s available in really great quality out there… Not sure if the one I have is uncut or not, as I don’t remember the initial airing… All I do know, is that we’ll never see a DVD release with the various groups of characters all owned by separate companies… *sigh*
