Jim Henson created the Muppets in the mid 1950s, and they became hugely popular with young children, thanks to the television series Sesame Street, a show that began production in 1969 and continues today. In The Muppet Show (1976-1981), Henson took the Muppet characters that young children so loved and created a variety show aimed at the whole family. Suddenly Mom, Dad, and kids of all ages fell in love with Henson's adorable creatures, and it seemed like the Muppet movies and TV shows couldn't come fast enough. The Muppets' popularity continued after Jim Henson's death in 1990 with new productions such as the 1999 movie The Adventures of Elmo in Grouchland and the television series Bear in the Big Blue House (1997-2006).

A 2008 TV special, A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa features favorite Muppet characters like Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, and Fozzie Bear as they prepare for a busy holiday season in the modern world. Kermit and Ms. Piggy are headed to the Caribbean, Gonzo is off to Hawaii, Fozzie is embarking on a comedy road tour, and it seems like everybody is in a hurry to get somewhere. Stuck in line at the post office, Kermit tells his friends to relax and enjoy the best time of year, so they all take a moment to "help" their local postal workers. When Gonzo returns from the post office, he realizes that he's forgotten to mail three important letters to Santa--one of which is from his good friend Claire (Madison Pettis), who's already feeling a bit blue because all of her friends are going out of town for the holiday. Selflessly putting their own plans on hold, Gonzo, Kermit, and Fozzie embark on a long journey to the North Pole to deliver the letters. Along the way, they catch a cab driven by Whoopi Goldberg; meet a new friend, Joy (Uma Thurman), who speeds them on their way; and discover a way to help the curmudgeonly Officer Meany (Nathan Lane), who's been on Santa's naughty list for years. What they learn during their journey is that Christmas is really about family, friends, and togetherness. This television special is full of adorable characters and fun songs that appeal to kids of all ages, and it provides the perfect opportunity for a whole new generation of kids to fall in love with the Muppets. Bonus features include deleted scenes and a "Stocking Stuffer Smorgasbord" in which viewers gaze at the fire while listening in on the Muppets' holiday meal. --Tami Horiuchi

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!

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.

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.

This is a really fun Christmas movie with the Muppets and many celebrity cameos. Take note that this is not a feature-length film but a made-for-TV movie with a short run time. A very cute holiday movie.

Our kids liked the movie, which is the most important rating. They laughed throughout and got sad at the end, so it was a pleasant journey. Even as an adult, I still enjoy how the different muppet characters interact. Some of the parts are corny for an adult, yet the kids don't notice that. Our children are between four and nine years old.

This was a good, child-friendly show-no questionable or "scary" material. Our 3 yo enjoyed it and it held her attention the entire time. We enjoyed telling her about each of the characters we grew up loving.

Picture quality was good and there was no interruption in service.

Since I had a son, and many neices and nephews, I ended up watching a lot of shows with them and always loved the muppets the most. I bought one movie as a gift and the other for myself. I watched it during the week of Christmas and loved it. Although I'm an adult, like most other adults there will always be the child side to us. With so much violence and dark stuff all over TV, the world and news, what a nice thing to just sit back and enjoy something fun and entertaining. Sure, the Muppets does have some violence (especially Miss Piggy who might need some anger management classes), but we don't take it seriously. No more so than a pig in love with a frog. I can't speak for everyone. I liked it and will watch it again.
