Frank the Tank’s Classic Music Video of the Week: The 12 Days of Christmas – John Denver and the Muppets

Posted: December 21, 2006 in Classic Music Videos, Music, Television

Reason number 1,015 to be thankful this holiday season for YouTube: Getting to see footage of “John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together” for the first time since my family’s old VHS copy of the iconic TV special became too scratched two decades ago.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to Everyone!

(This and a ton of other clips are on the Frank the Tank Channel on YouTube.)

    In the interest of Muppet-equality, the album version is slightly different…. Kermit doesn’t sing til the 12th day of Christmas, Fozzie was day 2, and Animal wasn’t present for the festivities. My guess is that when they went into the studio, Animal was drunk and passed out, so they had to rearrange things (also I read something on that Kermit had 12th day rights in his contract, and could also call Robin in for “favors”)

    Merry Christmas Frank
