A Little Christmas Spirit

Since it's the holiday season, I thought I'd share some of my favorite holiday memories. One of my favorite memories of childhood is listening to John Denver and the Muppets "Christmas Together". We had this album on 8-track and I loved it. So to celebrate the wonder of Xmas and the wonder that is YouTube, I bring you two tracks from that CD.

This "12 Days of Xmas" track is actually slightly different on the CD. It features my favorite muppet, Beaker, which this one does not.


I didn't know this was Emmett Otter singing this until today.

Enjoy and Happy Holidays!

That. Was. Awesome!

Two of my favorite things! John Denver and the muppets! I don't think I've seen that Christmas special since I was around 9 years old, but it sure brought back memories. Thanks for posting it, Patrick!

Beaker rocks!

An embarassing tidbit: I was Miss Piggy for Halloween many, many moons ago.

And I miss John Denver.
Thanks for that, Patrick!

Paul,

I'm glad you liked it! There's a lot of other great Muppets stuff on YouTube too.

Susan,

Where are the pictures? :)

Patrick:
Those photos are kept in a vault, in an undisclosed location.

(My word verification was "joybbnmt".

Joy, indeed!

We have the original record album from the TV show. It is literally worn out from being played so often every Christmas and had to be replaced with a CD. We have wished that the original TV show would be shown again somewhere and somewhen but each year are disappointed. Where in the world did you get the video clip? I would love to have a copy of the whole show.

For now I am glad to settle for the two clips and thank you for posting them. Our family has always felt Christmas to be incomplete without hearing the Muppets Christmas album.

Bill,

The videos were from www.youtube.com. Someone else posted them.

Amy,

Glad you liked them!

It's glad to see 'me' (think rock'n'roll chick Janis) popping up in Muppet masterpieces now and again--thanks for sharing! :)
