Everybody should have a Cookie Monster centerpiece for the holidays. It’s very festive. Messy, but worth it.
A special known for its wonderful camera angles, stunning choreography, Bob’s awesome yellow sweatshirt, THE HAPPY CHRISTMAS SANTA YOU LOVE TO HUG, a cat that meows over dialogue, Oskuh’s bad experiences with yogurt, and Big Bird’s struggle with a festive beak muzzle. Plus a few unnecessary musical numbers for good measure.
Actually it was known for being as ridiculous as the Star Wars Holiday Special that aired the same year.
This parrot is making me laugh harder than I should. Especially when he starts speaking in Spanish… it’s ridiculous hearing such a deep, manly voice coming from a muppet parrot.
Happy Birthday to Muppeteer Dave Goelz!!!
My first Tumblr post was about a Raychem industrial video featuring puppetry by Dave Goelz (before he joined Jim Henson’s crew to bring to life famous characters including Gonzo the Great, Dr. Bunsen Honeydew, Traveling Matt, etc.)
Dave Goelz’s birthday was yesterday, so I’m bringing my old post back, this time it’s just the jingle. Both verses edited together and cleaned up.
