It I could explain this special in one word, then that word would be...Funny. It almost contained the classic Sesame Street humor that was made for the modern times. I must admit it was pretty bold and kind of funny for Sesame Street to be pulling a Sorprano ending when they were doing that & skit. It was kind of cute seeing Big Bird singing with Anne Hathaway, even I didn't know that she could sing that well. Anyhow it was great to see just acting like his usual self and it was a nice touch to include his "I Hate Christmas" song. Super Grover was fun to see to and it was cool for him to give Stiller the Elf a break. And Stiller the Elf was just fun to watch. Although I was displeased with the lack of Telly & Zoe showing up but saying very little, and Abby playing a supporting role, but I let Abby pass because she is still new to me. All together it was a great show and it was nice to watch for an hour.
