This movie was never aired on any pay-TV network, up until 2016, when this film was a part of HBO and Cinemax's catalogue of archival titles from Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures. HBO and Cinemax were the first and only pay-TV networks to air this film. Though not considered a pay-TV network but a DVD rental/streaming service, Netflix also offered the film through streaming in 2015. 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 »
This is just a wonderful telling of Charles Dickens great Christmas story. The story being so good, you would have to try had to make a bad movie out of it. But the Muppet Christmas is a splendid modern version which probably Dickens himself would have liked a lot.
Other than Disney movies, the singing does not get on the nerves and the comic relief is actually funny. Muppet characters we have known for decades like Kermit and especially Gonzo are having great moments.
This is the perfect Christmas movie to watch with kids. It is something to lighten up your soul. And the fate of Tiny Tim is a cause for tears again and again, no matter how often you watch the film.
