Show #184 – November 28, 2010

Time to kick off the holiday season here on The MuppetCast! This week we replay the Muppet spots from this year’s Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade (including the all-new Sesame Street song), and then bring in the season with lots and lots of Muppet Christmas music.

The MuppetCast is sponsored by The Fingerbucket Report and Bell, Book & Comic. Life should be more Fun!

Cookie Monster is gunning for a host spot on Saturday Night Live (video), in the same vein that Betty White had a Facebook campaign that led to her eventual hosting of the show. Here is the official link to Cookie Monster’s SNL campaign page, so go “Like” this cause, and let’s make it happen!

Longtime Muppeteer Marty Robinson was part of Sesame Street’s appearance in this year’s Thanksgiving Day Parade, as he has been for almost every year past. This year, however, he brought his video camera with him, and he takes us behind the scenes to experience the parade from HIS vantage point! A rare look into the life of a Muppeteer.

Thanks for listening! Questions/Comments about the Muppets or The MuppetCast can be emailed to me@muppetcast.com, or called in to the voicemail line at 614-364-4270. Follow the show on Twitter and join the Facebook page too!

Happy Holidays!
