"The Colbert Report" aired its finale episode Thursday night, and after killing the Grim Reaper to become immortal, Colbert closed the show with a little sing-a-long.

And by little we mean an epic, over-the-top, celebrity-packed number deserving of the departing host.

Here he is performing "We'll Meet Again" with a slew of his pals in entertainment and politics including – among many others – Jon Stewart, Willie Nelson, Neil DeGrasse Tyson, Tom Brokaw, New York City mayor Bill DeBlasio, Cyndi Lauper, Bryan Cranston, Big Bird, James Franco, Michael Stipe, Barry Manilow, Christiane Amanpour, Andy Cohen, and Patrick Stewart.

And of course we all know when we will actually meet him again, as Colbert will be taking over the "Late Show" for David Letterman in 2015.

"I'm ending The Report and I was gonna say goodbye, but now that I'll live forever, who knows," he said.

At the end he took off in Santa's sleigh with Abraham Lincoln and Alex Trebek, because… why not?

About a month ago we featured Frostie the Goat here on Cheezburger. Sadly, late Monday night Frostie became ill and passed not long after.

A blog post on Edgar's Mission reads:

Over the past 24 hours I have been consumed by a numbness, a numbness that has both protected and prevented me. Whilst is has protected me from a tsunami of pain, it has prevented me from writing this piece and only now in its subsiding can I type the words Frostie the Snowgoat has passed.

In the early hours of Monday morning the little champ told me he was not well as a rapidly expanding stomach screamed bloat. With Frostie's attending vet alerted and the administering of medications and massage commenced, the race was on to get my little buddy to her care and expertise in time. But alas this was not to be. As the little guy made his last gasps of breath he looked into my tear filled eyes as I begged him to stay, I told him I loved him and would do so forever more. It was not until I knew his spirit had passed that I would scream 'why' at the top of my lungs and sob inconsolably into his warm, sweet smelling white fur.
