Misanthropic miser Ebenezer Scrooge is haunted by his deceased business partner, Jacob Marley. Marley's ghost is followed by three more spirits from Christmases Past, Present and Future. Each has a lesson Scrooge must learn.
In Depression-era New England, a miserly businessman named Benedict Slade receives a long-overdue attitude adjustment one Christmas eve when he is visited by three ghostly figures who resemble three of the people whose possessions Slade had seized to collect on unpaid loans. Assuming the roles of the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future from Charles Dickens' classic story, the three apparitions force Slade to face the consequences of his skinflint ways, and he becomes a caring, generous, amiable man.

When the lights go out in the warehouse, Slade switches the circuit breaker several times and leaves in the off position. When power is restored later, the lights come back on even with the switch in the off position. See more »
[after watching his younger self make a deal with Jack Latham]
Yup, that's me! I always moved in when the moment was good. I could always smell a good business deal.
Ghost of Christmas Past:
So could Latham. Look where he ended up.

I haven't seen it in about 15 years, but I really did like this version of A Christmas Carol. Yeah, it deviated a bit from the original story, but... so what? I could relate to it more.
Seems like ABC would have this one to broadcast annually, but I guess they tossed it when the Fonzie furor was over. Actually, I'm not sure if he was best cast as the American Scrooge, but that didn't take away from the story.
Call me delusional, but I consider it an unappreciated holiday classic.
