The Muppets Go Gaga This Thanksgiving

Hugely exciting news announced this week for the Muppets. It was officially announced yesterday that The Muppets and Lady Gaga will star in a big-budget primetime TV special Lady Gaga & The Muppets' Holiday Spectacular! The special will air on ABC on Thanksgiving night, November 28th at 9:30pm-11:00pm ET. As with many Muppet productions, this new holiday special will feature special guest appearances from Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Kristen Bell, and RuPaul. According to sources, performance highlights include a duet between Lady Gaga and Kermit the Frog, a dazzling rendition of Gaga’s hit “Applause” with special Muppet guests, and performance duets with Sir Elton John, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, and RuPaul, as well as a special sketch featuring Kristen Bell, Lady Gaga, and the Muppets. As if that weren't enough, The Swedish Chef, Beaker, and Animal will perform special Muppet renditions of the holiday classics “Deck the Halls” and “Jingle Bells.” And as if all of that info weren't enough--during the special, we'll get a special sneak peek at Muppets Most Wanted, which, according to D23.com, will feature a cameo from Lady Gaga as well!

I don't know about you, Muppet fans, but this sounds like one of the most exciting, star-studded, and fun Muppet TV specials in a long, long time. I for one cannot wait!

  1. Y'know when I first saw that photo on the bottom posted to Muppet Wiki, it honestly looked to me like an SNL parody of a Muppet special. I didn't even notice Pepe was in there until after saw the pic a second or third time.

    Nonetheless, I have nothing against Gaga, and I do hope this can both successfully cater to modern audiences and appease Muppet fans. -- JB
