A retelling of the classic Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, miser extraordinaire. He is held accountable for his dastardly ways during night-time visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and future. Written by

In an interview, Kermit the Frog stated that the most important piece of acting advice ever given to him was by Michael Caine on the set of this film. His advice: "Never blink." 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 »
If he became a flavor you can bet he would be sour. Yuck!
Even the vegetables don't like him!

The opening credits feature the names of the Muppet characters as the Christmas Carol characters they portray. (Kermit The Frog as Bob Cratchet, etc). The ending credits list the voice actors and puppeteers themselves. See more »
Having seen previous Muppet offerings that were, frankly, banal this little gem almost escaped me. This film is best enjoyed if you already know the Dickens tale inside out so that you can relish the way it has been adapted to fit well-known Muppet characters and also so that you can spend you time watching for the throwaway comedy in the background. This is the same throwaway humour that Nick Park (Chicken Run) has become famous for. I recommend buying this movie on video and getting it out once a year, in the run-up to Christmas, as a family tradition.
