SERIES TRADEMARK: At the conclusion of the song "One More Sleep", Bob (Kermit the Frog) is seen standing alone in the street and a shooting star can been seen streaking across the sky. In many (not all) of the Muppet movies, a shooting star goes across the sky at some point when Kermit is on. 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 »

A truly superb Christmas treat for old and young alike. This is the re-telling of the classic Dickens novel 'A Christmas Carol'. Michael Caine is cast superbly as Scrooge but the muppet characters are absolutely brilliant, particularly Gonzo and Rizzo.
The sets are excellent and the music stirring (so much so I bought the CD soundtrack and listen to it at the festive season whilst driving).
I never fail to watch this movie at least once a year and if you haven't seen it you should, it really does make you feel good.
