Although A Green and Red Christmas is the third album released after the Walt Disney Company bought the Muppets in 2004 (following Best of the Muppets and a re-release of The Muppet Christmas Carol soundtrack in 2005), it is the first full album of originally recorded Muppet material since Kermit Unpigged in 1994.
The album also marks the return of new music from Rowlf the Dog and the Electric Mayhem, albeit without Janice who is only heard musically (she was last heard singing in The Muppets at Walt Disney World in 1990).
In the early part of December 2006, Kermit appeared on Good Morning America and The 9 to promote, talk about, and sing songs from the album.
The album was re-released on November 1, 2011 to tie in with the theatrical release of The Muppets. Two additional tracks were added to this version as well as new cover art.
