I have a lot of fond Christmas memories around the Muppets, and indeed the gang have provided my favorite versions of more than one carol, not to mention some original classics as well. Have a listen.
Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas--John Denver and Rowlf
A lot of great performers have done this song since Judy Garland introduced it in Meet Me in St Louis, but this version is the best as far as I'm concerned.
The Swedish Chef is just about to use Big Bird as the Thanksgiving Turkey ("Gobbler Gobbler Humungous" he says.) when the jumbo canary wins him over with a gift of bird seed, and sympathy that he is so far from Sweden on Christmas.
Now for my very favorite. John Denver and the Muppets, a Christmas Together first aired in 1979, and that year my sister got me the album for Christmas. I loved it all, but especially this song, which may sum up more than any other how I feel about the winter holidays.
"If You believe in love
That will be more than enough
For you to come and celebrate with me"
