  2. Pleasantly surprised.

    It's good to see the Muppet characters again. After the disappointment that was Muppets Wizard of Oz, I think this one will be a hit for me.

    They all look and sound great!

    :) 4 out of 5 Kermits!

    I liked it. I have to say that I thought the singing, dancing postal workers to be a little weird, but I'm sure in context, it won't be so jarring. Anyway, like Carrie said, the characters all look and sound great! They're trying out some new wardrobes on 'em, which is nice, and their voices all sound wonderful, too. I can't wait!

    Kermit and Fozzie remarking about wishing to spend the holidays together gives me warm fuzzy feelings, particularly as I bet that the most popular Xmas special will always continue to be Family Christmas. Even though that's probably not possible anymore, it's still nice for Kermit and Fozzie to give a nod to a classic.

    Pepe: What kind of post office is this?

    That had me laughing.

    Well the 5 minutes really looks good. I'll catch this.

    Love it! I cannot wait for this Christmas special. Looks like it'll be better than It's A Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie. I hope this comes to DVD and if it does, I know what I want for Christmas! ;)

    These are the Muppets I remember! The characters are out in the real world (as opposed to Muppety-scale-built sets) playing off human actors and stars. The characters aren't trying too hard for the jokes as in years past. Their existence in the real world is accepted and the humor comes from their on screen antics instead. That's the way it's supposed to be.

    Musical numbers, Muppety humor for all ages, expansive cast inclusions and that something missing has all returned in this clip. Not since Jim Henson have the Muppets seemed so Muppety. Seeing Luncheon Counter Monster and Big Mean Carl working together signifies that all is right in the Muppetverse. A 45 minute total running time insures that viewers will not get bored. There will be no slow points and there's always an extended DVD opportunity. This isn't only the right thing for the Muppets to do it's the right thing for fans young and old.

    The Muppets are back for everyone to enjoy. A dream come true. :flirt:

    That was really sweet, I enjoyed the Muppets' dialogue together at the beginning, particularly Miss Piggy, she really stood out with the comedy which is great. And she wasn't the target of any bad jokes. The banter seemed genuinely heart felt, as opposed to the jadedness of previous projects. They did see more Muppety. I feel like maybe the emphasis on Santa is a bit too childish, but we won't know until we see the whole thing obviously. I still wouldn't put it next to Muppet Family Christmas just yet, but this does seem to be a good special thus far. :)

    I will say though, that Bloomberg reveal was so stolen from the Marx Brothers and Night at the Opera, lol.

    Still, kudos for including Detective Green from Law & Order! : D

    The thing I find odd about the video is that during the musical number, Piggy complains at various times about wanting to leave, but yet still joins in the musical number without any objection.

    I really can't wait to see it. ^^ I loved the little sneek peek they gave us.

    hi all. looked good to me. can't wait to watch it on tv. i didn't care for the Oz movie but really like the last Christmas special they did. also i liked the part with the NYC mayor. one of the (many) cool things about the original Muppet movies were all the cameos.
