Haul out the holly
we're headed home so we can (Beep)
start to celebrate.
Fill up the stockings
we may be rushing things but we can hardly wait now.
For we need a little Christmas
right this very minute
candles in the window
carols at the spinet.
Yes, we need a little Christmas right this very minute.
It hasn't snowed a single flurry
Fozzie, we're all in a hurry.
this is the best idea we've had in years...
Christmas at my mother's farm.
Sounds great Fozzie, but don't you think we should have called your mother...
To let her know we were coming?
How little you understand bears Kermit.
- My mother loves surprises!
- - Good thing. She's in for a beauty.
- Surprise, surprise!
You see, I know what she is doing this very second.
There she is
in the old farmhouse...
On the snowy hill,
nice and cozy by a roaring fire.
All the Christmas
decorations will be up...And ma will be in her rocking chair, knitting... And feeling just a little sad... That she's all alone for the holidays. Well, the plane leaves for California in three hours. Ho-ho, Christmas in Malibu! Ah, I'm going to lie on the beach and catch some rays. Wocka, wocka! Oh, this is going to be such a surprise! Haul out the holly turn on the brightest string of lights we've ever seen. Slice up the fruitcake it's time we hung some tinsel on that evergreen bough.

The worst blizzard in 50 years is approaching us at a great rate. The weather service reports that barometers are falling sharply. Oh, no! Aah! He's right! Look at the snow. One snowflake, two snowflake, three snowflake... But Miss Piggy's out there in that storm. Five, six... All right, the huge canary sleeps in the attic with the cookie eater. Check. The blue monster said he'd sleep in the bathtub. - Check. - And, uh, Ernie and Bert will bunk out with the lizard here. Uh, Frog. Kermit the frog. What about Oscar? I'll be nicely miserable in my trash can here. Hey, maybe I could bunk out here with you. I never had a rat in my trash can before. That might be nice. Hey, everybody, look what I've got... Christmas cookies! Cookie! Oh, thank you. Who was that strange blue creature? That my kind of fella. Hey, everybody, it's time to rehearse for our Sesame Street pageant. It's called "'Twas The Night Before Christmas. - Come on out, Bert. - I won't. - Come on, Bert. - Ernie, please don't make me. Oh Bert, listen, everybody's waiting. Ernie, why must you always humiliate me? Come on, somebody has to play mama. And you lost the toss. - All right, well, just get it over with! - Okay. 'Twas the night before Christmas by Clement Moore. Hit it, Rowlf. "'twas the night before Christmas..." "And all through the house not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse." Cue the mouse. I'm here! I'm here! Cute little Grover mouse is here. What's the bowl for? Oh, uh, so you can see that I am not stirring. Note how the hand never touches the spoon. Thank you, thank you. Thank you, public. Thank you. This is great. Oh, aren't they adorable? Hey, don't encourage them. "Mama in her kerchief... " That's you, Bert. I know, I know. "And I in my cap had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap. "When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter, I sprang from my bed to see what was the matter." Open the curtain! Monsters as reindeer? This is crazy! Wh-where's Santa Claus? Don't worry, Bert, we're getting to him. "With a little old driver so lively and quick, I knew in a moment it must be Saint Nick." Hello! Is nothing sacred? Now wait a minute. Who let the two-headed monster be Santa Claus? But he said he'd never been in a play before. I mean, they said it. Both of them said it. Just go to the big finish. Will you, please. "But I heard him exclaim ere he drove out of sight, Mewwy Chwi-mah to aww and to aww a good nigh!" Merry Christmas to all, and to all a good night! Close the curtain! Thank you, thank you, thank you. Sorry to break up your fun in here, but have you folks seen the weather? - There's a real storm out there. - Oh, Lordy, I haven't seen a sky like that since the blizzard of '41. I tell you, Mr. Lizard, it's a good thing all your friends are safe and warm inside the farmhouse. Yeah, but... all my friends are not safe and warm. Sorry to hear that it's... Cold enough out there to freeze your Winnebago. - Hello? - Hello, Kermie. I've finished my shopping. Unfortunately, Jerome got the limo stuck in the snowbank. So, I'll just have to catch a taxi to the farmhouse. Listen, Piggy, there's a terrible storm outside... And I really think it's too dangerous to travel. So why don't you wait for the storm to end before you join us? Nonsense. And miss my Christmas Eve with vous? It's just a little bit of snow. See you soon! Bye-bye. Yo, taxi! Aah! My... oh! Oh! Oh! Aaah! I'm sure Miss Piggy will be all right. Kermit? Kermit, y-y-you look worried. I know exactly what you need. - Comedy. - What? Yeah, come on. Now's the time for you to meet my new partner! Who's your new partner? - A snowman. - The heck you say. Yeah, yeah. Come on outside and we'll do our act for you. Outside? It's too cold to go outside. - It's not cold. - It is cold! It's not cold. Can I come in and warm up? Okay, so it's cold. I'm Kermit the frog. You must be Fozzie's new partner. I'll say. We're terrific. Yeah, yeah. Come on! You are coming in a snowman, but you are going out a star. Hey, everybody, would you like to see our new act? We'd love to see your act. In fact, we'd hate to miss your act. In fact, we'd love to hate your act. Statler, Waldorf, where'd you guys come from? They're friends of mine, Fozzie. They come visit me every Christmas. M-my own mother is friends with you guys? These two comics are made for each other. The snowman is ice cold, and the bear's not so hot. Oh, please. After all, there's no business like snow business. Come on, ignore them. Snowman, do the straight line. - Okay. Hey, Fozzie! - Yes, Mr. Snowman? Did you hear about the church that burned down? Holy smoke! That was our best joke. That does it, Fozzie. Forget the act. I'm startin' to melt. It's too hot in here. Well, you know what they say. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the farmhouse. Oh, come on. You'll be okay on the back porch. Boy, that storm is really getting worse. Yeah, I hope Miss Piggy is okay. There is one worried frog. Aha! That's one. One worried frog. He's not the only one. That's two. Two worried frogs. Search me. More small talk, I think. Hey, I'd better go out and get some firewood. Corka doon. Hi there. Did you wish to talk to me about something, Mr. Cook, sir? Oh, ja, ja, ja. - Ungus sher doo. - Gee, nice kitchen. Hey, are you gonna have cranberry sauce and mashed potatoes? Ja, ensperging bern. - Oh, boy. - Yengis bern da goobla-goobla. I just want to hear about the whole meal. Oh, yerngus sperg... but first, I want to give this little present to you. Ebit her? It's chocolate-covered birdseed. I made it myself. Engus sperg da merga mor? I wanted to give it to you because, well, I know that you're from Sweden and it must be hard for you because you're away from your family and loved ones during the holidays. Ja. At Christmas, there are places and people and things that become very, very special. Chestnuts roasting on an open fire. Jack frost nipping at your nose. Yule don smert egon sverda gon mer. Es sblergon yeber eskimos. Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe, yegon glerkon smernay ew. Although it's been said many times, many ways, Merry Christmas Fleula yule. Merry Christmas fleula yule - To you. - a vu. Now there, Mr. Cook, tell me... Exactly what are you going to fix for Christmas dinner? Ohhh, uh, ooh, oh, um... Skraper vie don cranen boochers. - Shredded wheat and cranberry sauce? - Ja. My absolute favorite. Ja. Ooh, going to be lots of snow for me to shovel tomorrow. Uh, it's getting worse and worse out there. Aren't you glad you're in here all warm and toasty? I just wish Miss Piggy were. Okay, when I yell "three," gun it! One, two, three! You're really worried about your friend, aren't you, Kermit? Hmm? Oh, well, uh, yeah, yeah, a little. I'll tell you what. I'll go out looking for her. Really? But you've never even met Miss Piggy. We never met any of you until a little while ago. And now we're friends. See, Sprockey and I were gonna spend Christmas alone, but this is better! Now, what's your friend look like? Well, uh, to begin with, she's a pig. Well, up to a short while ago, I would have thought that strange. I'll give it a try. Gee, thanks, Doc. You'll be sorry. It's cold enough to freeze your Winnebago. What a sweet guy. Uncle Kermit? Robin? Where are you? In the cellar. What are you doing down there? I made a discovery. Oh, yeah? What are you talking about? Remember telling me about Fraggle holes? Uh, yeah. So? And how if I ever found one, we could go into Fraggle Rock and maybe meet some Fraggles? Uh, so? Is that one? Ooh, look at that. Well, it certainly looks like one. You never know where you're going to find these things. Can we go in, Uncle Kermit? Well, maybe just a little ways, see if we can meet anyone. Watch your step, Robin. Gee, it's kind of scary. These are beautiful caves. Oooh! - Hey, Uncle Kermit, wait up. - Hmm? Okay. Do you think this is really Fraggle Rock? Well I don't know but if I were a Fraggle, I think this is the kind of place I'd hang out. Wait a second. I thought I heard something. Guess not. Well, anyhow. Oh, uh, uh, well, uh, hi, there. - Hi, yourself. - Hi. - You're Fraggles. - I'll say. - But you're not. - I'll say. No, I'm Kermit. This is Robin. We're frogs. Oh. What's a frog? - They're frogs. - I'll say. Don't touch 'em. Frogs are probably noted germ carriers. Well, actually, we just came down here to wish you all a Merry Christmas. - Oh, thank you. - That's nice. - What's Christmas? - Yeah. - Oh, don't you have Christmas? - No. That's when you gather together with the people you love... And you wish each other peace on earth. Oh! Oh, we have a time like that. Yes, we do. As a matter of fact, we're celebrating it right now. We give each other presents. I'm giving goober this nice yellow pebble. And I gave Mokie that pebble last year. And I gave it to Red the year before that. And I gave it to you, Wembley, the year before that. That pebble's been a gift 37 times. - Thirty-seven times? - Yeah. - La-la-la la la - la la la - la-la-la-la la la - la la la la-la-la la la la la la la-la, Pass it on.. When it's nice and bright and it brings delight. Let your heart choose right gotta... Pass it on.. When it feels real good like a feeling should. When it's understood gotta... Pass it on.. When you're giving love away love will come again to stay. What you give is what you gain when you... Pass it on.. wWhen I give a gift to you I know you're gonna give it too. That's why giving's what we do as we... Pass it on.. Pass it on. Pass it on. Pass it on. Pass it on. Wish upon Wish upon all the good things that you do. Pass it on. Pass it on. Pass it on.

When I give a gift to you I know you're gonna give it too. That's why giving's what we do as we... Pass it on. Pass it on. And that's the way Fraggle presents work. I love it! Oh, Goober, I almost forgot. Huh? I want you to have this pebble. So, here. Wow! Oh! Oh. Ah. Thank you, Mokie. Hey, listen, Fraggles, this has all been great, but we gotta be going. Oh! Oh, what a shame. - I'll say. - No, wait, wait, wait. Robin, before you go, I'd like you to have this pebble. Wow! Gee. Well, Merry Christmas, Fraggles. Merry Christmas, frogs. Bye! Bye! - Bye! - Bye! Bye! Bye! Gosh, that was fun. Yeah, well, it's nice to be with friends at Christmas. Kermit, we hear shouting outside. It could be Miss Piggy. Oh, well, let's go. Anyone see her out there? Well, at least the storm has eased up a bit. Chef, why don't you make some hot soup? And, Mrs. Bear, would you put some extra blankets on a bed? - Wait a minute. There she is! - What? Yeah, and she don't look bad... for a pig. Oh! Merry Christmas, Kermie. Am I late? I-I-I don't know how to explain this, Kermit, but I was searching through the snow and suddenly... There was Miss Piggy with this costume for me. You don't have to explain, Doc. If there's one thing Piggy knows, it's how to make an entrance. Oh, there's no place like home for the holidays, 'cause no matter how far away you roam, 'cause no matter how far away you roam. Far away you roam. When you pine for the sunshine of a friendly face. For the holidays, you can't beat home, sweet home. If you want To be happy in a million ways. For the holidays, you can't beat home, sweet home. AHHH! Careful of the icey patch. Ok Mom. Hay everybody come in. Hey, everybody. Everybody, quiet. My mother has an announcement. Thank you, Fozzie.

Good King Wenceslas looked out, on the Feast of Stephen, When the snow lay round about, deep and crisp and even; Brightly shone the moon that night, tho' the frost was cruel, When a poor man came in sight, gath'ring winter fuel. The holly and the ivy, when they are both full grown, Of all the trees that are in the wood, the holly bears the crown. Oh, the rising of the sun and the running of the deer, The playing of the merry organ, sweet singing in the choir. I'll be home for Christmas. You can count on me. You'll have snow and mistletoe and presents on the tree. Happy holiday, Happy holiday, happy holiday. happy holiday. May your calendar keep bringing happy holidays to you. Here we are as in olden days Happy golden days of yore. Faithful friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more. Piggy? Have yourself a merry little Christmas. Let your heart be light. From now on our troubles will be out of sight. Through the years we all will be together if the fates allow. Hang a shining star up on the highest bough. And have yourself a merry little Christmas now. Caroling, caroling now we go Christmas bells are ringing. Caroling, caroling through the snow Christmas bells are ringing. Joyous voices sweet and clear, sing the sad of heart to cheer. Ding, dong, ding, dong Christmas bells are ringing. Ding, dong, ding, dong Christmas bells are ringing. Caroling, caroling near and far, following, following yonder star. Mark ye well the song we sing. Gladsome tidings now we bring. Mi, mi, mi, mi. Christmas bells are ringing. I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day their old familiar carols play, and wild and sweet the words repeat of peace on earth, good will to men! It's in every one of us to be wise. Find your heart open up both your eyes. we can all know everything without ever knowing why. it's in every one of us by and by. It's in every one of us by and by.
