With Brian Henson having sold to Disney, it's no surprise that The Muppets are becoming a bit more sugary. Luckily, they still have all their traits, even if the humour isn't quite as strong. I was also unable to distinguish between Oz's voice and his replacement, so that didn't become a distraction until afterwards. Letters to Santa starts as a big Hurrah for the American postal service, and then becomes a bit sappy. There's still plenty of jokes, most of which work, and the cameos are a real treat. Nathan Lane and Bobo the Bear work great as a comedy duo. It's really only 45 minutes long and the rest is taken up with outtakes. These outtakes are the highlight of the film, as you see the real genius of the puppeteers. When they mess up, they don't just throw the character out the window or leave the puppet lifeless, they act out their goof AS the puppet. More of this kind of talent needed to be displayed in the film itself. A fair enough Muppets Christmas special.
