It's that time of the year again. Thanksgiving is over & its time for me to share a lot of awesome Christmas shows (mostly on YouTube), for those of us who do not have cable.

A Muppet Family Christmas, the first Henson holiday creation I ever watched (I think), has them all, The Muppets (from the 80s TV show), the Fraggles & the muppets from Sesame street. I love this show & still watch it every year!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ojtGHXsTXmU

Christmas Eve on Sesame street:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EF4XRQwzls8

The Snowman, introduced by the late David Bowie.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHCZhUZXhZU&feature=share
And its sequel, The Snowman & the snowdog:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1Rbiun3G0-Y

John Denver & the Muppets, a Christmas together (1979)  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DuEzaMzaSHU

An older favourite from when my kids were little, Santa & the 3 bears  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dFiEhKKEXfI&t=13s

This one is from 1988 & features the title tune sung by Canada's Valdy, Bluetoes!

And the sequel, Frosty's Winter Wonderland: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xbp32I5Sj4M

And while this isn't exactly holiday themed, I still think it fits here as being somewhat wintery. Do you remember watching the Woody Woodpecker show & there was cute 5 minute short in between Woody's episodes, called "Chilly Willy", a little penguin? Well, you can check them out again, here: http://www.chillywillyfan.com/video.php
