“The Muppet Christmas Carol’s warmth, wit and obvious affection for Dickens make it one of the greatest Christmas films – and literary adaptations – of all time.” – Charlotte Runcie, Telegraph
The story of Ebenezer Scrooge gets a Muppet makeover as Kermit, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie and the rest of the hilarious Muppet gang romp through this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Academy Award-winning human Michael Caine gives a performance that’s anything but “bah, humbug!” as the greedy, nasty, penny-pinching Scrooge. One fateful Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Together with the kind, humble Bob Cratchit (Kermit the Frog) and his family, the Spirits open Scrooge’s eyes – and his heart – to the true meaning of Christmas. Filled with wonderful tunes from original Muppet Movie composer Paul Williams, and directed by Muppet-founder Jim Henson’s son, Brian, The Muppet Christmas Carol is a funny, heartwarming holiday treat for kids and adults of all ages! (Dir. by Brian Henson, 1992, USA, 85 mins., Rated G)
