On Thanksgiving night, November 28 at 9:30 pm ET/PT, the ABC Television Network will air the 90-minute special, ‘Lady Gaga & The Muppets’ Holiday Spectacular.’ The broadcast offers an avant-garde twist on the classic holiday variety show as Lady Gaga goes backstage with The Muppets, making a performance dream come true for the multi-platinum singer songwriter when they combine forces to sing holiday favorites and Lady Gaga hits.

Disney Parks has launched a new site allowing visitors to customize a video starring Muppets Kermit and Fozzie Bear touting the name of the individual or a blog site’s name in an effort to share the Give a Day, Get a Disney Day experience.
At this time, there appears to be a glitch with the blog site name where it won’t work for entries more than 12 characters, so the above video demonstrates adding an individual’s name for being embedded on a website.
NEW YORK, Dec. 1 — What do the U.S. Postal Service, the Muppets and Santa Claus have in common? Neither rain nor snow nor heat nor gloom of night will keep them from delivering dreams this holiday season.
Kermit the Frog and Fozzie Bear joined Postmaster General John E. Potter today at the historic James A. Farley Post Office lobby in New York City to kick off the holiday mailing season and the Postal Service’s Letters to Santa program.
“The holiday season isn’t just the busiest time of the year for the Postal Service — it’s our best time of year,” said Potter. “For nearly 100 years, the Postal Service’s Letters to Santa program has made dreams come true for those in need. This is a time to celebrate how postal employees, charitable organizations and businesses have made a difference in the lives of children coast to coast.”
“We’re excited to be helping the Postal Service make the holiday special for kids across the country. It’s the perfect way to celebrate,” said Kermit the Frog. A postmark of Kermit the Frog will appear in the upper right-hand corner of holiday cards and letters mailed throughout the month of December.
“Helping Santa Claus is always a good idea, especially at this time of year,” added Fozzie Bear, who saluted the Postal Service for 234 years of delivering holiday cheer — and saluted Santa just to be on the safe side.
