Kermit the Frog and his lovable gang of Muppets are popping up everywhere this holiday season. Starting this week, their cover of Queen's 'Bohemian Rhapsody' will be available on iTunes, and their special 'A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa' will air Dec. 19th on NBC. Our favorite amphibian took some time out of his busy schedule to chat with PopEater over email (for realzies!) about the Muppets viral YouTube video (watch it below!), his swampy plans for the holidays, and what to buy for the pig who has everything.

Whose idea was it for the Muppets to sing 'Bohemian Rhapsody'?

Well, y'see, we were having a video conference call and there was no hold music, so Gonzo started singing 'Bohemian Rhapsody'...and then some chickens joined in and it just kind of kept going from there. Since then, I've talked to members of the group Queen and surprisingly enough, that's pretty much how they came up with the song in the first place.
