Live From New York, It's The Muppets!

Kermit and the gang showed up on NBC’s “Saturday Night Live” on December 18, 2004. The Muppets appeared in two segments during the episode with host Robert DeNiro and musical guest Destiny's Child. Kermit sang “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” with Robert DeNiro in the opening monolog. And then Kermit, Fozzie, Gonzo, and Animal showed up to give Horatio Sanz help with his Christmas greeting by singing the recurring song “Christmas is Number One”. Like many of the current season episodes, this episode will be repeated sometime in the near future (probably sometime in the next month). So check your local NBC listings for Saturday nights to see if this episode will be on up again. It was a great Muppet appearance and a treat for all to see.

Also, I have shared a compleate transcript (and some small pictures) of the skit entitled “Season's Greetings From Saturday Night Live” with a popular Saturday Night Live website, SNL Transcripts. The site hosts the largest collection of transcripts of SNL skits and segments, so be sure to check out one of the Muppet’s skits from December 18th here. Hopefully Disney continues to get the Muppets out there and back in the spotlight.
