    Description

    This is the season for love, laughter, and one of the most cherished stories of all time! Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all the hilarious Muppets in this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens' classic tale. Academy Award winner Michael Caine gives a performance that's anything but "Bah humbug" as greedy, penny-pinching Ebeneezer Scrooge. One fateful Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Together with 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 original music and dazzling special effects, this fully restored and remastered MUPPETS 50th Anniversary Edition of THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL will become a Christmas tradition your family will treasure all the days of the year.

    Rated 4.9 out of 5 by 9 reviewers.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by God bless us every one! Amongst the plethora of dramatic interpretations of arguably the best known of all Christmas stories, this gem of a movie from Henson's Creature Shop is surely the best loved.  Directed by Brian Henson in 1992, two years after his father Jim's death, 'The Muppets Christmas Carol' sees the Dickens classic brought to life by old favourites and a whole host of characters created specially for this film.  Better-known for his serious acting roles, the tale's chief protagonist is played superbly by Michael Caine whose cool, cruel, capable performance provides the perfect counterbalance to the mirth, madness and mayhem of that of his supporting cast. This version retells the story in a way that is accessible to today's children by characters remembered affectionately by both their parents and grandparents. Bob Cratchett, our long-suffering but ever-hopeful hero is brought to life by Kermit the Frog with french-speaking, femme-fatale Miss Piggy playing his adoring wife.  Following a recent and unfortunately ill-fated attempt to see a stage performance of  the novella with a group of Year 7 students (we caught the last 30 minutes of Act2 - bah humbug), I purchased this beautifully presented, anniversary edition of the film and took to the sofa with my own children, a block of chocolate and a mug of tea.  As ever and despite having seen it at least a thousand times, we were soon all laughing like hyenas and singing along like a group of X-Factor hopefuls! Whether you're 4 or 104 you cannot fail but to fall in love with this film and what better way is there to spend a festive, fireside afternoon than in front of a timeless, literary classic brought to life my a group of puppets?  I would whole-heartedly and unreservedly recommend this film to anyone, Merry Christmas and 'God bless us every one!' 07 December 2013
    Rated 5 out of 5 by Great We were pleasantly surprised by the Muppets interpretation of A Christmas Carol and found it to be a most enjoyable version of the story. Great acting by Michael Caine and the muppets their usual funny selves. I've heard the original had an additional song which Belle sings to Scrooge, can't comment on this as I hadn't seen the original. This is a must to watch at Christmas from now on, highly recommended. 31 December 2012
