The Muppets have always been a personal favourite of mine. I remember at a young age pretty much burning through a VHS copy of Muppets Christmas Carol, and not just at Christmas either, I kept the Muppety spirit of the season flowing all year round! To this day The Muppets hold a special place in my heart, and the DVDs take up a good chunk of shelf space.
