At one point, I was going to pick this! Love this movie!

This was on my shortlist but Jammerlea has definitely made my choice easier.

This was one of the movies I was originally considering the first time around. I don't remember when I last saw this movie, but The Muppets is so nostalgic for me; I really wanted to revisit it.

Pre-Musical Question: What's your favorite Muppet?

You can't tell from all my bad jokes?

I was just in Disney this past week and they do a whole bit on Colonial America with Sam Eagle and it reminded me how much I love him. Fozzie Bear was my favorite as a kid due to Muppet Treasure Island and the PC game that my brothers and I were obsessed with.

Okay, I always say Animal is my favorite Muppet (though it was Kermit as a kid), but I'm pretty sure my all-time favorite skit is this one with Sam the Eagle

Full confession time, I have never seen the original Muppet movie. I saw all their movies from the 90s on, and watched the original TV show, Muppets Tonight, Muppet Babies and the new ABC show but I have no memories of actually seeing the movie. I think I may be the only one here to not have seen it.

As far as favourite Muppet goes and maybe and odd choice but it's Rowlf. I liked his music as a kid.

Now we know why you wear the fake nose and glasses in your profile. Unless it's a Fozzie Bear tribute.

Fozzie would be a close second.

It now concerns me that my favourite two were the ones that made awful puns.

This is only tangential to the movie so I'll tell the story here. My family and I went to see this when it came out in theaters but, for some reason, went to a theater in another town. It was a larger theater that had been broken up into 2 screens. We were late getting there so the movie had already started. Back then they let you stay for the next show so we did, wanting to see what we had missed. While we waited the movie next door started up and soon we hear lots of screaming. The movie next door? The Amityville Horror! We were hearing the murders of the family that lived in the house that started the whole deal. Quite a moment for a 9-year-old kid!

Hey, Rowlf was a doctor, a very noble profession!

I'm not suggesting that who ever has Christmas pick The Muppet Christmas Carol but I'm totally suggesting it

I don't believe I've ever seen this Muppet movie. I think I've only seen Muppet Treasure Island and A Muppet Christmas Carol. Maybe the Manhattan one? But the two I've seen, I've seen over and over again.

I am pretty sure I have seen this one. I know I had this one and The Great Muppet Caper on VHS. But don't remember anything from this one / remember Caper better than this one.

But more vividly remember the 90s Muppet movies (Christmas Carol, Treasure Island, Muppets from Space)

Gonzo was my favorite

Considering that is one of my favorite all-time Christmas movies and my favorite Christmas Carol adaptation, I would MOST ASSUREDLY not be opposed to this!

I like this one a lot, but Scrooged and Mickey’s Christmas are still tops for me.
