Gonzo is contacted by his alien family through his breakfast cereal. But when the men in black kidnap him, it's up to Kermit and the gang to rescue Gonzo and help him reunite with his long-lost family.
A retelling of the classic Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, miser extraordinaire. He is held accountable for his dastardly ways during night-time visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and future.Written by

A running gag in this movie is mishaps happening to Gonzo and Rizzo, especially Rizzo, such as falling from Scrooge's window twice, Rizzo being chased by a cat, Rizzo getting his tail set on fire accidentally by Gonzo, Rizzo landing on a cooked goose, and Gonzo being rendered temporarily unconscious, after he and Rizzo fall off a coach, when Jacob Marley screams at Scrooge.

When Scrooge is lighting the lamp to perform a search of the house, it is an obvious electric light. Since the film is presented as a theatre-play where The Muppets use whatever props are available, this can be seen as deliberate. See more »
Rizzo the Rat:
Rats don't understand these things.
You were never a lonely child?
Rizzo the Rat:
I had twelve hundred and seventy four brothers and sisters.
Boy! Rats don't understand these things!

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 »
The song "The Love Is Gone" is missing from most TV versions. See more »
A fine film that will put all you Christmas lovers into a festive,Christmassy mood and even those who aren't so optimistic about the festive season,it will definately lighten your hearts and cheer you up!
The traditonal story of Ebenezer Scrooge-who despises Christmas above everything else is closing up for Christmas Eve and goes off home 'humbugging' everyone who wishes him a 'Merry Christmas'.When he's sitting in his home,he's visited by his old fellow workers-Jacob and Robert Marley and they bring him the news that he will be visited by three ghosts that very night when the clock strikes one.Terrified,Ebenezer goes to bed and is visited by the three ghosts-the ghost of Christmas Past who shows him previous experieneces of Christmas in his own past,The ghost of Christmas Present who shows Ebenezer the present Christmas and finally the ghost of Christmas yet to come who shows Ebenezer his future-which isn't very good.Ebenezer is terrified and vows to change his evil,wicked ways and to rejoice Christmas. And so he does and makes everyone else around him happy.
A fine film portrayed brilliantly by Michael Caine and the muppets-Kermit the frog,Miss.Piggy and The Great Gonzo as Charles Dickens narrating the film himself.The best out of them all!
