The Muppets to appear in Thanksgiving special
The Muppets are to perform Christmas classics in a Lady Gaga Thanksgiving special this November...
We may have mentioned, once or possibly even twice on our Twitter feed, that we at Den of Geek are fans of the Muppets. If we had to choose whom to pull first out of a burning building - Fozzie Bear or Jason Statham - let's just say the decision wouldn't be an easy one.*
The news then, that ABC is to air a Muppets Thanksgiving special, featuring the talents of Lady Gaga, is music to our ears. Catchy, electro-pop music.
A ninety-minute special promising to be "an avant-garde twist on the classic holiday variety show" entitled Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular will air on the 28th of November on ABC in the US. As well as the Gaga songs will be duets with Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Sir Elton John, an appearance from Kristen Bell, and a sneek peek at 2014 feature, Muppets Most Wanted.
We'll let this next bit of the press release speak for itself, "Swedish Chef, Beaker and Animal will perform special Muppet renditions of the holiday classics Deck the Halls and Jingle Bells".
Time to break out the Quality Streets, we say.
* What are we thinking? We'd save Fozzie. The Stath would punch his own way out, calling the flames 'toilets' as he did so.
