Muppet Family Dinner aired on NBC on December 12th, 1998, and was reaired the following year in honor of Muppets From Space and Elmo in Grouchland.
The Muppet gang goes out to a nice fancy dinner, but when chaos breaks out between the Electric Mayhem, who was supposed to play at the dinner, the dinner might be in jeporady!
- Though Elmo appears frequently throughout the special, he doesn't speak at all.
- For some shots during the special, Elmo can be seen sitting with the Sesame Street cast in the back, but there are shots where he sits with other characters in the front row nowhere near his costars.
- When Kermit overhears the Electric Mayhem fighting, Steve Whitmire's head appears behind him.
- After Kermit leaves the dinner, Bunsen Honeydew disappears from the special.
- When this special aired on Cartoon Network in 2005, the following edits occurred: Kermit drinking a glass of wine was cut, as was Big Bird's announcement about Kermit's disappearance. A shot of the dinner was placed over the Electric Mayhem arguing (they were initially seen the whole time they were arguing). Finally, the Newsman's report was cut.
