"I'll Be Home for Christmas" is a popular Christmas song which recounts the joys of the Christmas season and reiterates that "I'll be home for Christmas, if only in my dreams." It was first recorded by Bing Crosby but has become a seasonal standard with numerous recorded versions.
Fozzie Bear and his Ma sing the song to each other in A Muppet Family Christmas, while Oscar the Grouch scowls behind them in his can. Appropriately, the plot of the television special revolves around Fozzie making a surprise visit to his mother's farmhouse for the holidays.
Fozzie and his mother sing the version where it goes "You can count on me" rather than "You can plan on me," possibly a little joke since The Count appears in A Muppet Family Christmas.
