Family Film: The Muppet Christmas Carol (U)
Joyful Muppet version of the best-known Christmas story of all time, the classic Dickens holiday tale A Christmas Carol.
Michael Caine is old miser Scrooge with Kermit his long-suffering but ever-hopeful employee Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit’s wife, and a host of Muppets pop up in this merry and bright, playful adaptation.
Watch as the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future take Scrooge on a journey through his lonely, wasted life. Michael Caine makes a wonderful Scrooge, delightfully rediscovering the meaning of life, alongside Jim Henson’s brilliantly realised ghosts. Anarchic and warm, this is a Christmas family classic.
