Dir. Peter Harris. 1987, 50 mins. (plus additional clips). Digital projection. With Jim Henson, Frank Oz, Dave Goelz, Richard Hunt, Jerry Nelson, Steve Whitmire, Kathryn Mullen, Karen Prell. Among the many holiday programs created by Jim Henson, A Muppet Family Christmas holds a very special place in the hearts of Muppet fans, as it unites the Muppet characters, the Fraggles (including Doc & Sprocket), and the Sesame Street characters in one big family reunion. In addition to a complete, uncut version of the program, Craig Shemin will present rare behind-the-scenes home movies from the production, and a compilation of some memorable moments from other Henson holiday productions.
