    I SEE KERMIT! Steve Whitmire did a great job with him as always. Was Steve actually under the float, or was it a pre-recorded voice track?

    This is the best Macy's parade I've ever seen. With the Sesame Street cast (reviving a few "forgotten" Muppets too) and Kermit the Frog, it REALLY made my morning!

    Huh? Was I watching the wrong coverage? I didn't see Kermit singing at all :(

    Is it just me, or was Kermit's song a bit of a tear-jerker in a happy way? Really, I loved it. It was the sweetest moment of the parade, I think and very pretty.

    Yaey! What a beautiful song... Who knew... Kristen Chenowith sang so nicely, was that a song from the new Barbie Christmas Caroll DVD? And of course, Kermit's song! ! !

    And after he finished singing...
    Kermit: Happy Thanksgiving Santa.
    Woo-hoo! *Off to feast.

    *Andy Williams singing the finale... Happy holidays everybody.

    Well, unless I passed out for a few minutes, CBS didn't show Kermit singing. Just a bunch of dumb interviews for their TV lineup. *wants to cry*

    It was actully Steve under the float, I read in an Interview he did with Toughpigs.com about the parade.

    Anyway I wished they hold longer on him...and not talk over his singing.

    Well, I hope somebody puts the footage on Youtube, because I didn't see him singing at all. I'm a little miffed now.

    Yeah. It's always great to see SS characters on the float who aren't on the show too often anymore, especially Alice and Barkley. Then there are the SS humans who are down to one appearance per season, Susan & Bob, so I'm glad they were both there. I also really liked the song Kermit sang at the end. I'm looking forward to when "Letters to Santa" airs.

    Hello fellow Michigander :D

    Yeah, basically all they showed was Kermit waving and saying "Happy Thanksgiving!", and I didn't see anything else. And I didn't leave the room or anything, so I don't see how I could've missed it. What footage was everybody else watching?
