    Just go to www.nbc.com and look for the big button about the Macy's Parade (complete with Kermit on the FRONT!) and then go to their holiday page and it's easy to find from there.

    That was awsome and the clips i saw durring the parade today looked really cool too! This is looking more and more like a real special Muppet project! It looks like they are using two diffrent Fozzie puppets though, the MFS-ish one outside the post office and a more classic looking one, (which i like better) during the song number.:o

    This doesn't look like some "special", this has the look and feel of
    a Muppet film. Heck this has more of a theatrical film look/feel than the Muppet Christmas and Oz thing. No, this is the Muppets BACK in the big apple, and holy goodness is the magic back. So cool seeing
    Big Mean Carl, Mr. Peasey/Director, Luncheon Counter Monster, Pops, assorted rats, chickens and of course the core of Kermit/Pepe/Gonzo/Piggy/Fozzie/Animal/Rizzo.

    *so wishes this was a two hour thing, since one hour tv special means 45 minutes of actual time*

    Seeing Pops, Sweedums, & The Luncheon Counter Monster was great then I saw Beauregard in the preview and just about jumped for joy out of my chair!
    This thing is going to be so awesome, now if only Digit and Leon would make a come back.

    Outside the USA cannot open the NBC link.

    Is it on youtube, or anyone know how I can watch it?

    Is this special gonna be shown in the UK?

    Wow! That NBC preview is terrific! The music is great, the Muppets feel true to their characters (loved Gonzo: "I gotta try this"), and the whole thing just feels right.

    Bring it on!

    That was actually pretty good. I like Pepe commenting on the absurdity of the post office being like that. Gonzo jumping on the conveyor belt was classic as well. It reminded me of GMC where he got his nose stuck and tells Fozzie he's got to try it. The werido is weird again. Bloomberg's part was "meh".
