Pepe the King Prawn rapping? Cee-Lo Green in a crimson latex suit pelted with fish? A flying convertible? Beaker experimenting with a dry ice eggnog? It’s hard to be a grinch after watching the new music video from the Muppets and Cee-Lo Green (see it at the bottom of the page). ‘All I Need Is Love’ was written by the soul singer – but the best bit is the “Mah nà mah nà” vocal passages sung by the puppets. It’s the latest in a long line of brilliant musical moments. Check out other highlights from the years.

Judging by the calibre of the last 60 years, a Kate Bush, Pixies or Radiohead collaboration might not be out of the question. We can dream…

RIP Jim Henson.
