It is the second film adaptation of "A Christmas Carol" to be filmed at Shepperton Studios, twenty-two years after Scrooge (1970). See more »
Although Scrooge's nephew, Fred, is seen enjoying Christmas Dinner with Scrooge and the Cratchet Family at the very end of the film, Clara (Fred's wife) is noticeably absent. She could possibly be seated across from Fred and therefore out of view of the camera. But it is never made clear. See more »
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 »
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!
