This wonderful Muppets Christmas special is the Muppet’s take on Charles Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol.”
All of the lovable characters of the Muppets turn out for this movie in the place of various characters, and Michael Caine plays a chillingly, miserly Ebenezer Scrooge.
Kermit the Frog is Charles Dickens, the story teller and narrator throughout the movie, with Rizzo the Rat as his side kick. Together, they tell the story of how Ebenezer Scrooge is cruel to his employees, Kermit the Frog (as Cratchit) and the other rats.
Filled with delightful songs, memorable skits, and a true to the original story that stays true to the original “A Christmas Carol.”
