12 Days of Christmas: The Muppet Christmas Carol

With only four more days to Christmas I bring you a very well done re-telling of Dickens’ “A Christmas Carol” with Michael Caine as Scrooge and Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit in the 1992 film – The Muppet Christmas Carol.
The movie follows the story of the classic story, Ebenezer Scrooge is a heartless man who cares only about work and the money he’s making. On Christmas Eve he returns home to only be visited by three ghosts that show him Christmas’ of his past, present and yet to come. All told with Muppets playing key characters.
This is the yet another great holiday film with great music and also has this real magic to it – a unique magic that only the Muppets seem to be able to bring out in this classic story.
If you are looking for a good film based off of this material to watch with your kids or to just enjoy yourself I strongly recommend it. It’s a movie I watched when I was young and it’s still a movie I watch each year around Christmas time. I warn you though; the music will get stuck in your head.

Great job on the 12 days. Will you continue this blog after the Press goes under?

I'm going to be honest and say that I think there is a lot of hope that the press is going to survive. About continuing the blog, maybe.
