Rocky Mountain Holiday with John Denver and the Muppets
Rocky Mountain Holiday is a one-hour musical variety special featuring John Denver and the Muppets, which aired on ABC on May 12, 1983. In the special, John and the Muppets go on a summer camping trip to the Rocky Mountains.
When I think of celebrities and the Muppets, the first ones I think of are John Denver, Harry Belafonte, and Paul Williams. Er.. I guess the latter one probably doesn't count. At any rate Denver's earnest but emotive folksiness was always a perfect match with Henson's vision and this special is further proof. While it doesn't top his own starring episode on the Muppet Show, nor does it come remotely close to topping their Christmas album, it's a sweet piece of TV worth any Muppets fan's time. I get a little misty every time they sing "It's in Every One Of Us" together.
