You could be forgiven for having missed it. For one thing it took place on the rarely seen Fox Business Channel. For another, it was lost amid all the Fox “News” Phony War On Christmas hysteria late last year.

There’s a couple other reasons, Yakki:
None of the Muppets have the names Foley or Limpballs . . .
All hail the Muppets!
