Oscar Does Christmas
27 December 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Nothing turns Oscar into a cranky curmudgeon more than Christmas good cheer. Here Felix and the poker-playing buddies are putting on A Christmas Carol to raise money for charity, and who better to play Scrooge than the old grouch himself. Except Oscar's on a real anti- holiday binge and refuses. Heck, he even evicts Felix from the apartment.

Kudoes to actor Klugman, who manages to make Oscar a meanie without making him dislikable. The auditioning for Scrooge is a hoot as the poker boys ineptly try to manage in Oscar's stead. But not to worry. Oscar gets an educational visit from Jacob Marley and the future. So, as Tiny Tim Murray (Molinaro) says "God Bless us all, everyone".
