In the book, there is only one Marley: Jacob Marley. Robert Marley was added so that they could be played by Statler and Waldorf. See more »
When Bob Cratchit closes the office door at the beginning of the film, he locks the door with a key. Apparently this lock doesn't work right: at the end of the film when Scrooge walks around town singing, he opens the same door without a key. See more »
Once again, I must ask you to remember that the Marleys were dead, and decaying in their graves.
Rizzo the Rat:
That one thing you must remember, or nothing that follows will seem wondrous.
Rizzo the Rat:
Why are you whispering?
It's for dramatic emphasis.

This is just a wonderful telling of Charles Dickens great Christmas story. The story being so good, you would have to try had to make a bad movie out of it. But the Muppet Christmas is a splendid modern version which probably Dickens himself would have liked a lot.
Other than Disney movies, the singing does not get on the nerves and the comic relief is actually funny. Muppet characters we have known for decades like Kermit and especially Gonzo are having great moments.
This is the perfect Christmas movie to watch with kids. It is something to lighten up your soul. And the fate of Tiny Tim is a cause for tears again and again, no matter how often you watch the film.
