    The segment with C'Lo Green and the Muppets just aired. Yes, it was a performance of All I Need Is Love. It was enjoyable, but two things I have to say:
    1 "Disney's" Muppets? Seriously Al? You know it's just "The Muppets".
    2 Didn't like how the guy shouting out the different cities at the beginning blocked out Kermit's intro.

    Other than that it's been an okay show.
    Rully liked Tony Bennett's version of These Are A Few Of My Favorite Things and Trace Atkins' rendition of A Christmas Song. But my favorite Christmas song from these Rockefeller specials on NBC was Shaquira's performance of Santa Baby back in the 2008 edition when the Muppets were promoting the premiere of Letters To Santa.

    I really enjoyed this appearance. Didn't much like how Cee-Lo interrupted Kermit's intro but whatever. I was waiting for this appearance but now that it's over, I've flipped over to Charlie Brown. Don't much care for the rest of the Rockefeller show.

    Haha I just did the exact same thing!!! I'm glad they were on early I thought I was gonna have to watch the whole thing. :p

    I have to say the same I didn't like that Kermit was interrupted. I also didn't care they were confined to a sleigh. But I didn't hate the performance. Piggy looked beautiful though! I thought the performance on GMA was better.

    Alrighty, being my usual observant self, I have a bunch of stuff to say. Also, excuse me if any of the stuff I'm mentioning appeared prior to this. I'm pretty much mentioning things here that I specifically noticed.

    First off, I wanna echo muppetlover123. Was this live or pre-recorded? One of my weak points is trying to look at the factors of the appearance to determine this, I kinda assume that it was pre-recorded, but I can't say for sure?

    Alrighty, next up, for the second night in a row, Fozzie continues to impress me with his little movements. Considering that Piggy was down below, I'm not entirely sure if Eric would have been up with Fozzie or down with Piggy, so I wonder who we can give this credit to.

    Gonzo is still wearing that purple tux, despite the fact that the other Muppets are wearing winter attire. Love his devotion to dressing up for big events.

    Snowths. Though that is to be expected with the performance of "All I Need is Love," just the fact that the Snowths actually appeared in a live performance amazes me, especially something this big.

    I liked how Animal's legs hung out over top of the set (or whatever you want to call it). Also, on the subject of Animal, he was very inactive today. Now this is to be expected, as the performer performing Animal was obviously tied up with Fozzie's right arm (as I assume one performer had Fozzie's mouth and left hand, and another had Fozzie's right hand and Animal), but still, odd to see him so well-behaved. Though it was nice to see him there, he looked so fake and stone solid that he appeared as more of an animatronic than a puppet, to the point where I almost wish that he wasn't there.

    Is it just me, or is one of Gonzo's pupils bigger than the other?

    Am I the only one who found Piggy's head attire a bit strange? The one side has an ear-hole for her ear, but then the other side apparently does not, so that her other ear is tucked underneath. Just looks weird for only one ear to be sticking up.

    And that's all for the moment. More to come as I remember all the thoughts gushing through my head.

    I really like the hat too. I just don't logically understand why would they (as in fictional manufacturers) produce a hat with only one ear-hole? :p

    I did love that Animal was chained to the sleigh, lol. :halo:

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    Huh, I didn't even catch that. :halo: I guess I was too busy looking at his legs to notice.

    Her other ear might get cold. :p

    I just didn't like they were in a sleigh it made them all seem kinda stiff. Even Cee Lo looked like he wanted to get out.

    The sleigh did...it was a bit squishy and tight, especially with big Cee-Lo in there. Yet then again, it seemed like Kermit and Piggy had so much room, yet the other three were all squished up at the top.

    Another thing: Gonzo did an awesome little dance with his arms partway through that I forgot to mention. It's the little things that make the show. :concern:

    I thought it was pretty good.

    That's why I liked last night's performance on The Voice I liked the way Kermit grabbed the mic. It really is the little details sometimes that make it great. :)

    Hubert Well-Known Member

    It really is those little things that count. Just those tiny little movements or shifts make all the difference. (Though I somehow missed the mic grabbing thing last night. :) )
