“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Reflective Wrap-Up Refrains”!

Hi, everyone!

Now that the New Year has arrived, holiday season is officially over. The next major holiday isn’t for another month, and it’s a divisive one, to say the least!

Until then, we’re in this odd “in-between” time: fresh off a series of tightly-packed holidays, still in the midst of winter, and searching for something to look forward to.

But, we can still enjoy this time! If you watched any version of A Christmas Carol during holiday season, you probably heard the line about living “in the past, the present, and the future.”

So, we’re going to take this time to do just that, and jam to a round of…

“Magic mirror on the wall…”

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Holiday Celebration Songs”!

Hi, everyone!

There are still more holiday/Christmas/winter tunes under the tree!

Since this Jammin’ with Jamie jam session will jam the morning of Christmas Eve and the first night of Chanukah, many of you will be starting your holiday celebrations, and we’re going to help with some sensational…

Are they also “Muppetational”?-

“Jammin’ with Jamie” Theme: “Christmas/Holiday Character Carols”!

Hi, everyone!

We’re still unwrapping refrains for the holiday/Christmas/winter season!

This week, we’ll be welcoming some seasonal friends to jam with us!

Christmas/Holiday Movies: “It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie”

Hi, everyone!

I had a pretty hectic Halloween season this year, so I wasn’t able to continue my series about Halloween movies. However, I know that my subsequent series on holiday/Christmas/winter movies (and specials) only had half the amount of entries… that is, only two. Yikes.

So, I’m going to rectify that this year, starting…

now!

For those of you who are new (or just don’t remember), this is how this series works…

This month, I’m going to watch (and, in some cases, re-watch) some movies that are perfect for the holiday/Christmas/winter season. These are not reviews, because I’ll only be writing about films I love and recommend. There’s no plan, method, or scientific algorithm to what movies I’m going to watch or how I’m going to structure these entries. I’m just going to have fun with it, and I hope you will, too!

First up, a TV movie that I believe is ridiculously underrated…

It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (2002)!

I do not own any of the following images or videos!

Here’s the trailer:

It’s ALWAYS a merry Christmas with The Muppets!

It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie (2002)
Plot: The Muppets are putting on a big Christmas show to save their theater, but when everything goes wrong and Kermit the Frog’s spirit seems broken, an angel comes to show him what the world––– and his friends––– would be like if he’d never been born.

I also have a very personal connection to this movie, which you’ll have to read on to find out about!

Spoilers lurk beyond this point!

‘Tis the season!

Christmas/Holiday Movies: “The Muppet Christmas Carol”

I had so much fun writing about Halloween movies, I decided to extend the series and write about films perfect for Christmas/the holiday season! Most will probably be about Christmas, but I’m leaving myself wiggle room for other holidays and general winter movies.

Remember, these are not reviews: I’m writing about films and TV specials that I love and recommend.

My favorite Christmas movies generally have a nice mix of humor, fun, wackiness, and heart––– and some good music doesn’t hurt, either.

This first film has all of that, and more. Warm up your voices, because it’s time for…

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)!

By the way, if you like the Muppets, make sure you check out The Muppets on ABC!

I do not own any of the following images or videos!

Here’s the trailer:

I’m not sure why there’s music from Beetlejuice in the trailer, but it works.

I'm smiling already!

The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

Plot: Ebenezer Scrooge, a wealthy, bitter businessman, despises Christmas and all forms of kindness and charity; but this Christmas, he just might get a chance to redeem himself…
