    We're looking for a few things for our upcoming Christmas Music Marathon on Muppet Central Radio. Let me know if you can help and send us audio for any of the following.

    (1) Sesame Street Book-and-Audio Sets:

    - "Big Bird Presents the Nutcracker" (1990)
    - "A Grouch's Christmas" (1990)
    - "Elmo's Night Before Christmas" (1996)
    - "Elmo Saves Christmas" (1997)

    (2) "All I Want for Christmas Is You" - Cookie Monster, Zoe and Rosita from the stage show, Elmo's Christmas Wish

    (3) Jane Henson's Nativity "A New York Christmas to Remember"


    (4) Does anybody have this Muppet News Flash sketch with Kermit and Santa? We've been looking for this one for a long time.

    (5) Megan Hilty - Bless Us All

    (6) Furchester Hotel Christmas special ("A Furchester Christmas")

    (7) Big Bird singing "Merry Christmas Wishing Well" at Lincoln Center

    Also, if you have any suggestions of songs or Muppet Christmas covers that you would like added to our rotation please let us know.

    What is the name of that newsflash?

    Are you talking about the one with Kermit waiting for Santa by the chimney and he gets blocked by an AM chimney sweeper? I think it's listed at Muppet Wiki under the "Holiday" title. I'm personally looking for a MUP3 of the one where Kermit tries to interview Santa but gets the Easter Bunny and a Halloween witch who have their holidays all mixed-up, because in my own little fannish head cannon I think this sketch could have inspired Tim Burton's Nightmare Before Christmas.

    Ed the skit you are talking about is on Youtube if that helps.

    Were you able to make mp3s of the Sunny Side Up stuff with Elmo I had sent you before? The videos have been removed since then.

    I'll try to think of some winter/Christmas TMS stuff - the only ones that come to mind are Fozzie's Robert Frost poem and the 4th of July/Christmas medley with Hal Linden.

    Here is the description of the sketch we're looking for from Muppet Wiki....

    Holiday: Santa Claus

    Kermit witnesses how Santa Claus comes down the chimney, but not before a chimney sweep enters the chimney first.

    Yes, I have those. :laugh:

    I've got those two, along with Wayne and Wanda's "Let It Snow" from Season 1 and "Baby, It's Cold Outside" from Season 2.

    I wanted to bump this thread to see if anyone can help with the above Christmas music requests. We're about 10 days out from going all-Christmas on Muppet Central Radio.

    Also, if you have any suggestions of songs or Muppet Christmas covers that you would like added to our rotation please let us know.

    Hmm... The only new stuff I can think of to add to MCR's Christmas rotation are the sketch where Bert and Ernie build a snowman and Bert winds up with no winter clothes... And the just announced appearance of Miss Piggy on Michael Bublé's Christmas special scheduled to air on 12/17/2014 at 8 PM ET/PT.

    Hope this helps.
    *Still wanting a MUP3 of that News Flash sketch with the holiday mix-up if someone could please send it to me. :electric:

    Thank you all for the feedback. The Christmas music will begin on Friday.

    We're still looking for the items on the above list if anyone can help. We're also searching for the Muppet Christmas Carol French soundtrack if anyone happens to have this, please let me know.

    Looking forward to the music; love hearing it!

    If anyone has a high-quality version of Jane Henson's "A New York Christmas to Remember", please start a private conversation with me. We're looking to add this on Muppet Central Radio.

    Hey Phil, was wondering...

    Does MCR's Christmas merry-thon include the following?
    The snipet from MCC where Bean Bunny sings Good King Wenceslaus, then abruptly stopping as he reaches Scrooge's door after Collection Agents Bunsen and Beaker have left.

    The episode/sketch of Tales From the Vet with the infamous 1983 Christmas party where Dr. Phil van Neuter got drunk on eggnog.
    Eggy-noggy, eggy-noggy.

    Just some suggestions for further additions to the playlist.

    Great suggestions, I'll work on adding these.

    Hmm... I can send you the following from The Great Santa Claus Switch if you want.

    A Bundle To Be Made At Christmas Time,
    Happy Little Christmas Frackles,
    A Bundle Full Of Joy Every Christmas Eve.

    LMK and I'll send them along. :)

    I'm sure I've said this before, but I think since gingerbread men are a staple of this time of year, I think "Sweet Gingerbread Man" and Cookie Monster's "Gingerbread Man" would fit right in.
