Okay, unfortunate name (Elmo) aside, I have changed my mind and plan to watch this special! I'd still rather it be called Sesame Street's Christmas Countdown, but what's in a name? Hope the red guy won't mug and hog all the screentime. This looks promising.

Frgoboy you took the words right out of my mouth!
There's no reason at all that this special should not be called Sesame Street's Christmas Countdown. *shakes head*

Hmmm, Stan the Snowball - any relation to our puppet character Steve the Snowball? Check out the original puppet snowball here: http://www.savexmasnow.com

I like Elmo! (But, hey, that may be because I grew up with him)

I understand the Sesame Street Christmas Countdown, except that Elmo, Stiller, and Abby were the main characters. So maybe Elmo, Abby, and Stiller the Elf's Christmas Countdown? Aw, I don't know, that doesn't roll of the tongue as well...

Names aside, this special was cute and hilarious, and worth watching again! =)
