According to Brian Henson, the decision to use Gonzo and Rizzo to narrate the story was made because he wanted to incorporate the narration and prose of the Charles Dickens novel into the film. 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.
