Writer's Block: B.Y.O.B. Holidays

"A Muppet Christmas Carol" for the following reasons.

1) Michael Caine as Scrooge. As a Scrooge who signals the end of his miserly ways by dancing and singing through the streets of London. With Muppets. 

2) A soundtrack that I remember dancing about to when I was eleven and am still inspired to dance to whenever I hear it today. 

3) Statlor and Waldorf as Marley and Marley. And their chains? Have Singing. Muppet. Lockboxes. 

4) Muppet vegetables. That sing. In the streets of London. 

5) Mini-Kermit as Tiny Tim in what may be the most adorable version of Tiny Tim in the history of ever. 

6) Did I mention the Muppets? The singing and dancing through the streets of London Muppets?

Mini-Kermit

I have never heard anyone call Kermit's nephew Robin that, before, BUT I LIKE IT AND WILL USE IT. ALL THE TIME.

Also, Robert "Bob" Marley. Makes me laugh every time.

Anyway, just to share, my favorite Muppet Christmas special is THIS ONE:

It has the Muppets, the Sesame Street Characters, AND The Fraggles! All together!

Hell, it's not just my favorite Muppet Christmas Special, it is my favorite Christmas Special, period. I have no idea why they stopped airing it once it stopped being the eighties. It's not THAT dated.

I know that because I am slightly muppet-obsessed.

Slightly.

I CAN'T HELP IT. THEY MAKE ME SO HAPPY. Showing me a muppet will instantly cause me to smile my fucking face off. It is slightly disturbing.
