You didn’t think I’d let a Muppet Monday falling on Hanukkah pass by without posting some sort of hilarious video or funny picture or insightful essay relevant to both the Muppets and Hanukkah, did you? Well, it’s Tuesday now, so I guess you were sorta right. But, still, a little faith would be nice.
I stumbled upon this video that combines perhaps the two things that I love most in this world: The Muppets and Growing Pains. This video features Jeremy Miller (aka Ben Seaver, aka the cute kid who grew into an awkward bespectacled teen and was quickly supplemented (supplanted) by a young Leonardo DiCaprio) visiting the Jewish version of Sesame Street, Shalom Sesame, and hosting a Hanukkah inspired game show spoof entitled “Dreidel of Fortune.” Watch and…well, watch.
I guess this means that Jeremy Miller is Jewish too. Not nearly as exciting as the same news about Alison Brie.
