    Merry Christmas everyone!

    "Best swamps he's ever seen"... sounds like a nudge to Paradise Swamps...

    I hope there's video of this out soon. My TV isn't working so I can't watch it. :(

    I loved the Muppets on this (not enough of them mind you...and I missed the last half hour). Gonzo jumping over the castle was great and Kermit trying to pass off Piggy for New Years was funny also. Loved everything with Statler and Waldorf. Must of been neat being there and watching the two old coots through out the Parade.

    I missed the last half hour as well. I was wondering if the other Muppets besides Kermit, Waldorf and Statler would appear. I was sort of expecting the Great Gonzo since he was shown at the beginning. I'll have to search for that appearance online. Maybe Dave and Steve were the only Muppeteers available for this which is why the other characters didn't show up. Just some food for thought.

    I missed most of it. Mainly because I thought it was on earlier than noon, and then sort of forgot about it watching Secret of Nihm on another channel. But I liked what I saw, Statler and Waldorf commenting on stuff, Gonzo in his Water skiing outfit jumping over the castle...

    I watched the whole thing and only saw an outtake during the credits with Gonzo.

    Was he cut from some regions' broadcasts or was he cut entirely? I skipped through the streaming version and couldn't find him either.

    Anyone have the clip he appeared in?

    I didn't see Gonzo either, but I did see a two or three minute blackout screen during the streaming broadcast. I assume that's where he was. What gives? Was there some kind of licensing issue with music or something like that?:confused:

    Thanks for posting the link! I was heading over the river and through the woods when it aired, so it was nice to be able to watch later. I think any major, star-studded event is much improved if Statler and Waldorf are hanging out in a balcony making fun of it. It's a shame they cut out Gonzo, though. Poor hose nose gets no respect. :boo:

    Actually, Gonzo was not cut out.

    He appeared. Some of you just missed him.

    Anyway, I liked their appearances in this year's parade, especially Statler & Waldorf heckling the proceedings from atop the Emporium on Main Street. They should do that every year.

    He appeared, but was that appearance included in the online recording? I watched the whole thing, I think, and didn't see him except the outtake bit at the end. If it's there, I need to go back and watch!

    I agree. Statler and Waldorf should heckle pretty much everything. I still have hope that they'll be at the Oscars, in their own little balcony. ;-) Not a lot of hope, mind you.

    There is a scene release of the Canadian broadcast. He's not in that either.

    I wonder why Gonzo's stunt scene isn't included online? Wild. It's not a really long scene, but it's awesome! Dialogue between him and (the beautiful) Maria Munos (sp?), then Kermit commenting on seeing Gonzo's stunt in the background. A really cute and Classic Muppets-type skit, I loved it more than any other Muppet bit from the entire parade.

    Maybe KermiClown will have it available soon?
