1:39 Is that a muppet snowman? Joe Snow!
4:41 Kermit is an uncle?
7:14 “Kermit deserves justice.”
11:54 Cirque Du So Lame.
16:09 Quite a good cast. Whoopi. Joan. Is there a story here though?


I wanted to watch this after suddenly hearing about the meme that Kermit is responsible for 9/11 (in the alternate universe without him the towers are still standing) but unfortunately, I didn’t get that far. It was all just a bit scrappy, the various muppets were all over the place and I only got about half the references anyway. If there was a story, it was taking its time to get going… plus Whoopi and David were watching from a summer meadow which wasn’t very Christmassy.
