Christmas Eve on Sesame Street

Continuing with my trend to provide you with the highest quality holiday entertainment, here's one of my favorites. If you're anything like me you grew up with Sesame Street and probably saw this special.* Raise your hand if you remember Mr. Hooper (look for him in the subway scene around 2 minutes 30 seconds). We had this taped on VHS and when my little brother was about 4 he would literally watch it and rewind it and watch it again over and over. That and Ghostbusters. To each their own. I watched it so many times with him I can still do the sign language to the song Keep Christmas With You.

*It is out on DVD if you're interested. I'm still waiting for A Christmas Together with John Denver and the Muppets. My absolute favorite**. I have the CD.
** I just found clips on YouTube!!! Stay tuned for your next installment of superb Christmas entertainment!

OMG! We had that video! And my kids wore it out when they were younger... and they didn't know who some of those characters were (David, Mr. Hooper), but still loved it.

It's a classic!

I've got all of John Denver and the Muppets in MP3 format on my laptop. I loved that record when I was a kid.
