Nice film

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS & REVIEWERS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION I HAVE NO AGENDA. I AM FARE.

Pitch your tent for a ROCKY MOUNTAIN HOLIDAY with John Denver and the Muppet's in this Emmy-nominated special, which overflows with John Denver's memorable songs and Muppet -puppet laughs. When city slickers the Muppet's join the ultimate country boy for a camping trip in the scenic mountains of Colorado, the Muppet's adjust to outdoor living while John Denver serenades them with his beautiful music. With the clear blue skies, mountain streams and wild animals roaming free, they all share the wonderful experience of being out in nature with friends. And what better way to end the day than to sit around the campfire and sing songs and tell stories together! It's fun for the whole family with John Denver and the Muppet's in a Rocky Mountain Holiday that you can enjoy any day and every day!

This is not a Christmas Special that I thought it was going to be. It is enjoyable but I kept waiting for them to sing the 12 Days of Christmas but that I found out later was on a different special. This is still worth watching. The Muppet's are always enjoyable. John Denver and the Muppet's were a great combo.
