The movie is dedicated to the memory of Jim Henson and Richard Hunt. Henson, of course, was the creator of The Muppets. Hunt was one of the Muppet voice performers, perhaps best known as the voice of the character Scooter. Together, Hunt and Henson performed the characters of Statler and Waldorf, who in this film, are voiced by Jerry Nelson and Dave Goelz. 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 »
I've got his blankets.
Ah, his blankets... Why, Mrs. Dilber, they're still warm! I don't pay extra for the warmth, you know.
You should. It's the only warmth he ever had.

This is an excellent re-telling of Dickens' classic, with the added twist of Muppet humor and charm. The Muppet characters fit Dickens' characters so well that it would be easy to think he had them in mind while writing. The music adds a magic to the movie that brings out all the emotion that Dickens wrote into the original novel.
This will be hard to top!
