The Marleys make a reference to "teddy bears," a named derived from President Theodore Roosevelt who was born about 15 years after A Christmas Carol takes place. Since the film is presented as a theatre-play, however, where The Muppets use whatever props are available, this can be seen as deliberate. 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!
