My Top Ten Muppet Christmas Songs
My Top 10 Christmas Songs Performed By The Muppets (With Occasional Human Accompaniment)
There have been a large number of Muppet Christmas specials produced over the years, most of which included musical numbers performed by Muppets. I decided to look at which of these Muppet musical numbers are my favorites, and assembled this top ten list of Muppet Christmas Songs.
Let's see if you agree with my list of the top ten Muppet Christmas songs!
10) Delivering Christmas - Performed by The Muppets and Jesse L. Martin
I would actually enjoy going to the post office if the postal employees there would sing and dance for us like this. Yet that part was more believable to me than Jesse L. Martin's character asking the Muppets if they want to help handle other people's mail at the post office.
This is from "A Muppet Christmas: Letters to Santa".
9) One More Sleep Till Christmas - Performed By Kermit the Frog
This Muppet Christmas song is from "A Muppet Christmas Carol".
The Muppet Christmas Carol
8) I Believe - Performed by Kermit The Frog & Tiffany Thornton
"I Believe" was debuted at the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade in 2008 and written specifically for the event -- Macy's ad campaign that year was themed "believe". An official music video was released following the event.
7) Thankful Heart - Performed By Michael Caine And The Muppets
This is another great number from "A Muppet Christmas Carol".

6) The 12 Days Of Christmas - Performed By John Denver and the Muppets
This performance was from the first of two Muppet Christmas specials featuring John Denver, "John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together".
5) Christmas Medley - Performed By The Muppets
This is the medley that wraps up "A Muppet Family Christmas". You may think picking a medley is a cop out, but if you do, you clearly have not had the chance to truly appreciate the awesomeness of all the Muppets in one room singing Christmas songs together.
4) I Hate Christmas - Performed By Oscar The Grouch
Oscar's performance of "I Hate Christmas" was featured in the PBS special, "Christmas Eve On Sesame Street".
3) I Wish I Could Be Santa Claus - Performed By Gonzo and Fozzie Bear
This beautiful song was written by Paul Williams, who also appears as an elf in this particular Muppet Christmas special, "A Muppet Christmas: Letters to Santa".
2) It Feels Like Christmas - From A Muppet Christmas Carol
There are a few great Christmas themed songs in the Muppet's interpretation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol". This is my favorite of them.
1) We Need A Little Christmas - Performed By The Muppets
I don't care that this was a cover song because it is no big secret how I feel about cover songs. The Muppets rendition of this song from the musical "Mame" makes me want to sing really loudly while driving, the same way Fozzie Bear is in the opening of "A Muppet Family Christmas".
