    I love The Hub way too much right now. Here's an excerpt from their holiday press release:
    I can't wait!

    Yay! Found The Hub in time for the Muppet movie marathon last week, and it's becoming a new addition for when I'm not on the comp.

    Thanks, will hope more Muppet Christmas shows make their way around the holidays. :) :excited: :eek:

    I wonder if Kermit will be in it.

    So excited
  5. Sweet! I haven't seen that in years!

    I actually had a plush tiger when I was a little girl that I named Rugby after seeing this special. He was like my best friend growing up. My dad got rid of him and all my other toys when I was about 12-13. I still think about him and wonder what became of him...

    This is awesome!

    I just wish that they would air A muppet Family Christmas....they really should...seeing as how they are airing both The Muppet Christmas Carol and The Christmas Toy. It would be utterly ridiculous not to air A Muppet Family Christmas.

    Do we know if this is being edited or not, Kermit/no Kermit?

    Very cool to see "The Christmas Toy" being aired again! And yes, I certainly hope Kermit's appearance is included. It'd be great to see some other rare Christmas specials get aired, particularly those not on DVD (or not on DVD in unedited form) like "A Muppet Family Christmas" and "John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together".:)

    I can confirm right now as I'm watching it that Kermit did not make the cut, they are using the HIT edit of the special for broadcast with some other edits. To bad but at least it's airing on TV again, probably the first time since the Odyssey era.

    Yep. Finished watching it just now, surprised to find it.
    Another notable edit is the omission of Balthazar's rendition of The Greatest Christmas Toy Of All, establishing the chain of Christmas toys for four years running.

    BTW: Anyone besides me thought the following when Meteora makes her grand entrance announcing herself as "Queen of the Asteroids"?
    Meet Buzz Lightyear's predecessor... Either that or his mom.

    There is another airing coming on Monday which my program guide describes as: "Kermit The Frog telles about toys that come to life at Christmas"

    No worriesAaron. Actually, that one on Friday is the one we were all waiting for, why today's airing caught us by surprise.
    Have a good holiday season everybody. :)
