In the frosty air

Just bring it inside, guys.


Yo, Fozzie, I finally made it.

Hey, Rowlf, welcome.

You're late.

Yeah, I've been chasing a truck

all the way, and boy, am I exhausted.

Oh, I get it. Truck, exhaust.

That's funny.

- Yeah, that's a dog joke.

- Go inside and tell Mom that.

- Gotcha.

- She loves canine humor.

Okay, boys, put it over there

in the corner.

Come on, Doc, let's get

this holly up here.

Oh, Mrs. Bear! I've been chasing

a truck, and boy-- Whoa!

Oh, my! I guess Fozzie didn't tell you

about the icy patch.

Yeah, I guess he didn't.

Anyhow, my name's Rowlf the Dog.

- I've come for the holidays.

- More? More people?

I'll go out and see if there's

a spare pillow in the kennel.

Yeah, bark, bark.

Don't you just hate it

when you can't speak the language?

Stay right where you are.

- Kermit, where are you?

- In the kitchen, Fozzie.

I got some wonderful news!

Kermit, let me tell you

about this new act I found.

- Listen to this.

- I'm listening.

- I was outside building a snowman--

-Just a second.

Kermit, wait. See--

Hello. Emily Bear's residence.

This is Kermit the Fro--

I just wanted to tell you I have an itsy

bit of Christmas shopping to do...

before I come out to the farmhouse.

But, Piggy, tonight's Christmas eve.

Not never you fear, dear.

I shall be there soon. Ta-ta.

Oh, green fuzzy flipper slippers.

Divine. Have them gift-wrapped.
