Plot

On Christmas Eve, the Muppets go to the post office in New York City to deliver each of their letters to Santa Claus (Richard Griffiths). When they head back to their apartment, Gonzo discovers that three letters wound up in his coat from a mishap there. One of those letters he recognizes as being written by his friend, a neighbor girl named Claire (Madison Pettis). On Gonzos insistence, the principal Muppets decide to go to the North Pole and deliver them personally.

The Muppets end up getting tickets from a North Pole Airlines clerk named Joy (Uma Thurman) and getting caught by a bitter security guard Officer Frank Meany (Nathan Lane) who for being a bully perpetually ended up on Santas naughty list. He and Bobo the Bear allow the Muppets to pass through.

They eventually reach the North Pole, only to find out that Santa has already left to deliver the presents. Santa overhears their grieving and returns. While on a sleigh ride, they hand him Claires letter and the other two which are revealed to have come from Frank Meany (who wants to be taken off the naughty list) and Pepe the King Prawn. Santa brings them home to New York in time to spend the rest of the holiday with Claire and her mom, which was all Claire wanted in the first place.
