There have been so many takes on Charles Dickens' classic story, but the muppet version will always hold a special place in my heart and yes I do re-watch it every year.There's something about having the muppets tell the tale that makes it a little more joyous. Gonzo the Great plays Ebeneezer Scrooge and Kermit the Frog is Bob Cratchit and of course Michael Caine as Scrooge. What more could a child ask for? I feel like I don't need to summarize the story and I'll go out on a limb and assume you all know it and I think for a film aimed at children, this adaptation stays relatively close to the original. You know, with puppets and additional music.
Are there any holiday movies that hold a special place in your heart? Have you seen this one?
I'll leave you now with a clip from the film, or one of the saddest songs ever.
