Fozzie Bear has packed up the entire cast of ''Series/TheMuppetShow'' and brought them with him to surprise his mother Emily Bear on her isolated farm for Christmas. There's just one problem: Emily's scheduled a trip to Malibu and rented out the farm house to Doc (from the U.S. and Canadian version of ''Series/FraggleRock''), who's looking forward to spending a quiet Christmas in the country. Despite his protests, they're soon joined by the ''Series/SesameStreet'' gang; complicating the matter, "the worst blizzard in fifty years" is preparing to slam the region, and Miss Piggy is missing in action. Throw in the Fraggles and even a bit of ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', and HilarityEnsues.

There's just one problem: Emily's scheduled a trip to Malibu and rented out the farm house to Doc (from the U.S. and Canadian North American version of ''Series/FraggleRock''), who's looking forward to spending a quiet Christmas in the country. Despite his protests, they're soon joined by the ''Series/SesameStreet'' gang; complicating the matter, "the worst blizzard in fifty years" is preparing to slam the region, and Miss Piggy is missing in action. Throw in the Fraggles and even a bit of ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'', ''WesternAnimation/{{Muppet Babies|1984}}'', and HilarityEnsues.



* ArtShift: In a meta sense. The ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'' segment is puppeteered, matching the rest of the show but differing from the cartoon. The puppets (with the exception of Baby Animal) were re-used from ''Film/TheMuppetsTakeManhattan'', officially going from Piggy's dream sequence to actual backstory status.
* BatFamilyCrossover: The only time you'll ever see the four cornerstones of early Muppetdom (''Series/TheMuppetShow'', ''Series/FraggleRock'', ''Series/SesameStreet'', and ''WesternAnimation/MuppetBabies'') in the same place. Don't expect it to ever happen again, as the ''Sesame Street'' characters are now owned by a different company, ''Fraggle Rock'' is [[Creator/TheHub only known to those with cable]], and ''Muppet Babies'' will be [[KeepCirculatingTheTapes tied up in legal red tape]] until the end of time.

* LetsMeetTheMeat: The turkey, initially at least, seems rather nonchalant about being, as Gonzo notes, "in the wrong place at the wrong time".

* ContinuityLockout: Anyone from an area with its own localized human segments of ''Fraggle Rock'' was utterly confused by Doc and Sprocket (and remember this was before you could just Google who they were).

* IGotARock: In this case, it's apparently a good thing. The "nice yellow pebble" has been a Fraggle gift thirty-seven times, then Boober gives it to Robin, and it is later given to Grover.
