A Sesame Street Christmas Carol (2006)
26 December 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

A bit of harmless Sesame Street fun. Clearly lacks the creativity that Jim Henson used to bring such projects. The Muppets did this story so well. Here it's mostly a way to recycle some old clips. I never like this approach. Clip shows have always been one of those things I detested. The ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future are all CGI and mostly annoying. The CGI treatment is a bizarre and jarring choice. The beauty of Sesame Street has always been the puppets. Creating CGI characters is like using stop-motion in a Pixar movie. I'm not sure if Oscar actually learns a lesson by the end of this. At least we get Tim Curry as a narrator. Only for the younglings.
