It’s a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie—Wednesday, December 2, at 7 a.m. ET on Freeform
December marks the start of Freeform’s 25 Days of Christmas and it kicks off with a fan favorite. The Muppets star in this caper loosely inspired by It’s A Wonderful Life. Rachel Bitterman (Joan Cusack) dreams of tearing down the Muppet Theatre and turning it a nightclub where she can overcharge her patrons. She inherits Bitterman Bank and decides to change the terms of the Muppets’ loan so the final payment is due before their annual Christmas show. Fozzie Bear loses the loan money and the Muppets must turn to Kermit the Frog for help. But when Kermie wishes he’d never been born Daniel (David Arquette) must show him what the world would be like without him in it!
