    I'm partial to the John Denver & The Muppets: A Christmas Together. No other Christmas Muppeting beats that soundtrack!

    Mine is A Christmas Toy, a lot of risk taking with the story and an amazingly moving soundtrack.

    My favorites are A Muppet Family Christmas, The Muppet Christmas Carol, Elmo Saves Christmas, The Muppets: Letters to Santa, The Bells of Fraggle Rock, and Elmo's Christmas Countdown.
    They are all great holiday specials and movies, in my opinion. :)

    Muppet family Christmas...Jim Henson doing dishes at the end always brings a tear to my eye...though I like a very Merry Muppet Christmas a lot too....though its got parts that don't work right for me somehow...but otherwise I really like it...classic muppet theater.....some great humor...and the scene where kermit scenes with Gonzo is great...though I wish there was more music....

    I'm gonna say A Muppet Family Christmas is my favorite, but John Denver and The Muppets: A Christmas Together follows really close behind.

    I couldn't say no to this special. I love watching the Henson christmas classics. I will say that Rugby is my favorite, but what got me my heart strings was when Mew (yeah the cute cat toy) was frozen (or dead). Mew was cute too. So, yeah thsat was always my favorite.

    My absolute favourite is A Muppet Family Christmas! I've loved it since 1987, when it first aired.

    Me too, Piggy the Frog! That will always be number one on my favorite muppet christmas specials. The ctossovers, the songs, oooooh Fraggles, everything. The Jim Henson cameo was sweet and it could get you misty-eyed. Merry Christmas everyone!

    Don't know how much longer it will be up, but there's a poll on The Paley Center for Media's website asking what your favorite Christmas special is. John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together is one of the choices!

    A Muppet Family Christmas. I also used to watch Emmet Otter every year but I haven't seen it since I was a kid.

    My favorite special is A Muppet Family Christmas, but my favorite Christmas episode (from any show I've seen) is The Bells of Fragge Rock. It has that warm and festive feeling, manages to be multicultural and goes well with the main subject of the show.

    I have to go with A Muppet Family Christmas, because seeing all the characters together is so much fun!

    ^what charlietheowl said.
    I've loved AMFC since I was about five years old. Putting together all the characters from the classic shows that Jim Henson was involved with (TMS :):sympathy::mad::o:concern::confused::eek:;):sing::fishy:, SS :wisdom::grouchy::batty::search::insatiable::super::(:p:laugh:, & FR :smirk::dreamy::excited::coy::sigh::busy::drool: ) was simply genius.
