I had been hoping it would be on the service, and I would no longer have to rely on my crummy old burned-to-CD .avi version from back in the BitTorrent days. It remains one of my favorite holiday specials. Even in my late forties, I still find myself getting a bit misty-eyed when the Sesame Street gang shows up, and especially at Jim Henson’s appearance at the end.
I wonder if the streaming rights to it are tied up because of the inclusion of the Fraggle Rock characters. My recollection is that Fraggle Rock was an HBO thing.
