The Carol of the Bells, muppet-style.
Have you noticed the muppets are showing up all over suddenly -- this marvelous skit; the Bohemian Rhapsody skit; they were guests on the Wanda Sykes show (my TiVo recorded it, but I didn't watch) and one even had a cameo on 30 Rock a couple of weeks ago. About a year ago I read an article about the fortunes of the company -- I can't remember the details, except there was a sell-off (or a buy-out) and they kind of sunk from sight and profitability. As of the time I read about them, they were starting a long term recovery project, ultimately wanting to move back into television and movies (as a regular thing) but they had carefully planned out that they were going to gradually start appearing more often in advertisements and cameos and such. It's really cool to see the plan playing out. I hadn't realized how much I missed the Muppets. And I'm so thrilled for the company to see the continuity over generations (they are in the second gen of puppeteers now).
I loved the cameo on 30 Rock. That' was the Best!
