There are two more songs that are on the soundtrack but aren't in the movie at all. One is "Room in Your Heart", sung by Dr. Honeydew and Beaker as the charity workers. The other is "Chairman of the Board", sung by Sam the Eagle as Scrooge's headmaster. Both were recorded, but dropped from the script before filming started to help the flow of the story. See more »

Oh, spirit, must there be a Christmas that brings this awful scene?
How can we endure it?

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.
