Product Description


A warm Yuletide special, Muppet Family Christmas pairs the Muppet gang with the perennial favourite Sesame Street cast for a holiday celebration. With a blizzard brewing outside, Fozzie's childhood farmhouse on Christmas Eve becomes the backdrop for a medley of holiday tunes--eight in all--ranging from the Muppet band's rousing "Jingle Bell Rock" to Big Bird's sweet rendition of "The Christmas Song". Though the script meanders in part, the program shines as a musical revue, seasoned with quick-witted interludes by the culinary comedic Swedish Chef, slapstick odd couple Ernie and Bert, and the diva-like escapades of Miss Piggy. While lacking the irresistible sizzle of The Muppet Movie, the show's finale, which includes Kermit and Piggy under the mistletoe and a cameo appearance by Jim Henson, proves that nothing can dim the Muppets' appeal. --Lynn Gibson,

Product Description

The Muppets are spending Christmas at Fozzie's mum's farmhouse. When snow starts falling, just as friends from Sesame Street and Fraggle Rock arrive, something magical happens. The sparkle of the stage lights up the whole farmhouse and soon everyone is singing along to their favourite carols. These include 'We Need a Little Christmas', 'Jingle Bells', 'Jingle Bell Rock', 'The Christmas Song', 'Pass it On', 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas' and the 'Christmas Medley'.

4.0 out of 5 stars Buy it - it's great 17 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
A really fantastic feel-good Christmas with all the Muppet clan descending on Fozzie's mum's house just as she's about to jet off for a sunshine holiday.
The holiday postponed, she must now find beds for all of Fozzie's wacky friends. Miss Piggy must make it through snow storms and snow drifts to be beside her beloved Kermie for Christmas and the Fraggles and Sesame Street gang even put in an appearance.
Lots of fun for the family this Christmas - buy it - it's something special!

4.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Xmas Fun 25 Dec 2013
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
A Muppet Family Christmas - 4/5

The Muppet gang are off to Fozzie's mother's house in the country for Christmas, she plans on going to Malibu and has already rented the house to Doc and Sprocket from Fraggle Rock, when Fozzie and his pals show up they decide to make it work. Meanwhile, Miss Piggy has been caught in a huge snowstorm and can't make it. I liked the crossover between the Muppets and Fraggle Rock but then the Sesame Street gang turn up too, and they find an old film reel of them as babies, so we get a live action Muppet Babies bit too, and then Kermit and Robin discover an actual Fraggle Hole in the basement and venture in for the first ever meeting of Muppet and Fraggle. Eventually Piggy arrives, as does Santa.

There's so much going on in this Xmas Special, it's 48 minutes long but packs in loads into the running time and is never boring for a single second. The Swedish Chef even considers cooking Big Bird for Christmas Dinner.

I think I'll make this part of my annual tradition now. It's so much better than that lame movie with Jason Segel, and just as good as A Muppet Christmas Carol.

The Christmas Toy - 3/5

On Xmas Eve 1986 I saw the first 10 minutes of this special but I had to go out and I missed the rest of it. The idea of toys coming alive might not seem like such a new idea in post-Toy Story world, but since this is live-action, and uses the talents of Jim Henson, I'd prefer this over the Pixar behemoth.

The story is virtually identical to Toy Story, with toy boss Rugby (a stuffed lion) not too keen on his rule being usurped by the imminent unwrapping of this year's present. The Christmas Toy has a new edge though in that if the humans catch them out of their reset position they remain frozen forever.

It's shot and lit in a magical way though it goes on just a bit too long. I am still glad I finally managed to figure out what exactly it was, it only took me 27 years.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of my fav Xmas specials 24 Nov 2008
I bought this last year after I found out the UK version had the original cut. The stupid north american version had alot of cut scenes and well being that this is one of my fav xmas specials I didnt want to pay 50$ for a crappy dvd, so I bought it here...This is one of the first xmas specials I remember watching as a kid so it holds special meaning, but the greatest thing about this xmas special is that its funnier now that I get the adult humor...

5.0 out of 5 stars Christmas fun with the Muppets! 6 Jan 2004
By pacem et amorem TOP 1000 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
This is a lovely addition to any Muppet fans collection.
The Muppets are heading to Fozzie's family home - a surprise for his mother who has her alternative Christmas holiday plans spectacularly disrupted!
Zany as ever, the regular Muppet cast are joined by the Fraggles, the Sesame Street gang and a turkey trying to make it through to the other side of the holiday season!
So go on - join Kermit, Fozzie, Miss Piggy and pals for a lovely Muppet Family Christmas ... Oh! just before I forget - "Mind that icy patch!" (if you buy the film and you'll get the joke!)

4.0 out of 5 stars A Film to treasure 25 Jun 2004
Format:VHS Tape
My family has owned many films over the years, this is one of the few that we still watch every year. In fact it has become a family tradition to watch it every christmas eve.
There are many reasons to love it. For starters it includes not only the high profile muppets, but also all of the seame street gang, the fraggles, and Jim H. himself. Being a christmas special, it also has alot of suitably festive music, in an inimitable muppet style. Being a muppet film, it has a sense of humour unequalled by anything alse.
The reason though that I think this film really deserves its place amongst all the classic muppet films is its warmth. That may sound silly, but this film has a sense of involving you in the larger muppet family, that no other does.
So, if you've ever, even briefly loved the muppets, this could well be the film that will allow you to relive that enjoyment.
