Funny / It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie

Go To

Lots, to the point where it's hard to pick one.

  • The Muppets' Christmas show is an elaborate spoof of Moulin Rouge!, possibly the best Muppet parody in a decade. To wit, the scene makes fun of Baz Luhrmann's editing style (at one point Fozzie grabs Kermit by the neck with his cane and begins twirling him in circles just to make the camera spin dizzyingly around them), has chickens singing Lady Marmalade, Gonzo very appropriately dressed as Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec, and Miss Piggy as "Saltine", choking on the dramatic fog in her entrance and coughing uncontrollably (making a big laugh out of what was the most tragic scene in the whole movie). In the end, Miss Piggy brings the whole thing to a halt to scream at everybody to stop singing different songs at the same time.

  • There's also the Scrubs sequence, where Miss Piggy has a new gig as a dead body on TV, which she doesn't take lying down.
  • Either this or unintentionally funny, "Psst, psst. Come close. I WISH I HAD NEVER BEEN BORN!"
  • In the Kermit-less world Beaker’s a muscle-bound club bouncer with a hilariously deep ‘Meep.’
  • Apparently the chain reactions of Kermit not existing have led 90% of television to consist of reality shows.

How well does it match the trope?
