The Muppet Christmas Carol is one of the most beloved festive films – arguably more popular and iconic than the original Christmas Carol in a lot of ways.
Starring Michael Cain as Ebenezer Scrooge, the movie substitutes most other major characters for familiar Muppets, with Kermit as Bob Crachit, The Great Gonzo as the Narrator and Statler and Waldorf as ‘The Marley Brothers’.
It’s an uplifting and hilarious take on a classic, with songs that will stay in your head all the way into the New Year.
