Muppet Monday

Jimmy Fallon returned to Saturday Night Live this weekend — and so did Horatio Sanz, Tracy Morgan, and Chris Kattan, to help him close out 2011 with a rendition of their old standard “Christmas Is Number One”.

The last time the song was performed on the show, seven years ago, Sanz was the only one of the four still in the cast, and stopped the tune almost before it had begun when he realized there was nobody to back him up. Until, that is, Kermit the Frog popped up to tell Horatio that his friends would happy to join in... Here’s the video from this past Saturday, to jog your memory, and the previous clip with the Muppets.

  1. This is my favorite Christmas song ever! Unfortunately, I can't view the videos you posted (no luck here in Canada)- I will try to find them on Youtube. Happy Hanukkah, Alabama Blammer*!

    *I try, I try!


  2. תודה רבה, Joanie!

    I'm sorry you couldn't view the videos. I guess that's what you get for moving to the North-of-the-49th-Parallel Universe, although it's kind-of ironic since I know lots of the most famous SNLera have been from up there.
