I've been waiting the opportunity to have this Dvd since I've heard of that show. And it was worth it! Generally it was well written, keeping the spirit of the Muppets. There was not a line of dialogue that felt weird or misplaced in the mouth of my favorite characters. The selection of the guest stars cameo was perfect, i was very happy to see Uma Thurman. Although there was some weakness in plots resolutions that I found a bit too easy. Personnally this Christmas show is better than the "Very Mery Muppet Christmas movie" wich had a bigger budget production. I'm always looking for a better screenplay that gives me the feeling that the characters are true to what we know and love about them!

Anyone who loved the Muppets will remember why while watching the Muppets Christmas. I watched it with my 2 year old niece and she could not get enough of the Muppets the singing and the dancing!

EXCELLENT! Nov. 4 2009
By Joel D. Ealy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
ok, so i'm happy most any time the Muppets do anything at all. it's true.

the only thing that i have NOT liked was the Wizard of Oz disaster.

this is the Muppets back home in New York being themselves, again. it is classicly told in the proper muppet universe.

the music is good and the jokes are fresh.

this ISN'T the MUPPET FAMILY CHRISTMAS, (nothing ever will be that great again!)
but it is the best thing in years!

Fun movie, even if the plot is a little underwhelming. Dec 4 2011
By Graeme - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
I originally watched this movie last Christmas. Surprisingly, they showed it multiple times on Comedy Network (basically Canada's version of Comedy Central): not exactly a network aimed at children. I'm a younger adult who's familiar with the muppets, but was born after their best years, so I wasn't sure exactly what to expect.

Don't expect an Emmy winning effort or anything more than a super-thin plot here, on those metrics the movie doesn't do much (it was originally made for TV after-all). However, it manages to get over these issues by having just a really fun Christmas atmosphere and some decent family-friendly jokes. In particular, Kermit and Pepe really drive this release. At times, for adult viewers, it is cheesy to say the least, but somehow with the Muppets even that seems forgivable. There are some great parts in this movie, starting with some great slapstick and overall comedy of how much damage the Muppets manage to do at the post office, to a great Sopranos reference (seems like the writers threw this in especially for adult viewers), to the humor of an actual airline that goes to the North Pole, to Whoopi Goldberg's interrupting of a heartfelt song to ask for money. As mentioned, the plot is thin, but it's enough to hold all the funny clips together. The songs are simple, but don't drag on and seem to work.

Perhaps the worst-part is the ending. As another reviewer noted, there was so much potential at the North Pole, but they seem to leave as soon as they arrive and it just feels underwhelming. Then there is a cheesy, lazy ending that really "wraps things up" out of nowhere. The movie could have been a little bit longer in return for a stronger ending. Additionally, some viewers may be disappointed that many of the Muppets only make appearances at the start and end of the film, it is primarily Kermit, Gonzo, Pepe, and Rizzo earning the screentime.

All of the above issues aside, I still give this 4 stars because while I never turned on the TV purposely to watch it, whenever it came on Comedy Network last Christmas, I never changed the channel and ended up watching it probably 5 times or so. And this year I've found myself searching it out again. Overall, the spirit, fun attitude and atmosphere, and Christmas cheer of this movie really manage to make up for its shortcomings.

Boy, you can tell that there's no Jim Henson Dec 22 2009
By The Phantom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD
Everything done by the Muppets since the death of Jim Henson has been sorely lacking in heart. This production had promise but it never got beyond that. Even Paul Williams' music seems to be lacking without the collaborative genius of Henson.

There are a few chuckles here and there--brought about mostly by the newish character of PePe the Prawn--but I'd have to guess that Henson wouldn't be proud of this effort.

And what's weirdest to me is that ALL of the Muppet's voices seem to have changed--not just Kermit's, who obviously sounds different these days since he isn't being performed by Henson. Fozzie sounds different, Miss Piggy sounds different, Gonzo sounds different, Scooter sounds different...and longtime Muppet fans will know it.

Just a disappointment overall and the last post-Henson Muppet production that I'll spend my money on.

Holiday Time with the Muppets April 14 2014
By Amy C. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Growing up, we watched the Muppets and loved all the crazy characters. Now with kids in tow, we wanted them to share our love of the crazy Muppets Gang.

Note, this is on Amazon for under $10, with that in mind, it's a great price for this holiday story. If it gets priced much higher, then I'll wait for it to drop in price again.

We found it to be a good story for our toddler age kids, if they grew up with Letters to Santa, the older kids might not mind this particular story. Other reviewers have stated that the plot is too simplified, but I think that's fine when it comes to Holiday movies.

For now, in our family it's a Holiday classic, we love all the Muppet characters in this made for tv movie, and have this DVD in our family entertainment collection.
