Sesame Workshop is planning to produce a brand new holiday special entitled "Elmo's Christmas Countdown". The one-hour television special is planned to air on ABC this holiday season and be one of the must-see holiday events of 2007. Many celebrity guests will appear in the musical extravaganza; including Ben Stiller, Tony Sirico, Steve Schirripa, Jamie Foxx, Jennifer Hudson, Ty Pennington, Alicia Keys, Sheryl Crow and Brad Paisley. Also set to appear are the beloved Sesame Street Muppets; including Elmo, Big Bird, Grover, Oscar the Grouch, Snuffy, Count von Count, and many others. Not much else is known about the project just yet, but I will be sure to keep you posted with more information on this project as it surfaces.
