Audience Reviews for A Muppet Family Christmas

Always enjoyed this one as a kid. Everyone from Sesame Street, the Muppet movies and Fraggle Rock all have a big Christmas get-together.

my 2nd favorite christmas special, this crossover with all the creations that Jim Henson has created and it may seem to be to some people a dumb crossover with all the muppet characters to make a quick buck but it really wasn't it was so much more and it truly is a wonderful story.

Absolutely essential Christmas offering. I watched this for the first time in at least 14 years, and yet I recalled every scene. It was such a charming experience to sit through this again. Fozzie and the Muppets head to his grandmother's house for Christmas. Before you know it, the Sesame Street gang and the Fraggles show up. What might have been an overcrowded crossover works due to the hilarious sketches. The scenes between the Turkey and the Swedish Chef are perfect examples of the Muppets' weird and rowdy wit. Common themes such as friendship and family are covered, but The Muppets always have a way of making these sweet, rather than sickly.
