The Muppet Christmas Carol

1992 | U | 86 mins

The classic Christmas tale by Charles Dickens is given a Muppet-style twist. Ebenezer Scrooge, a Christmas-hating miser, is visited by three ghosts – the Ghost of Christmas Past, Christmas Present, and Christmas Yet To Come. With their influence, will Scrooge come to embrace the festive season?

Starring: Frank Oz | Dave Goelz | Steve Whitmire | Michael Caine

Director: Brian Henson

Screenplay: Jerry Juhl

Producer: Brian Henson


THEY SAY: This is the Muppets’ finest film. Its mashup of slapstick, songs and literary adaptation is suitably anarchic, but crucially it gets Dickens right.As Scrooge, Michael Caine rises to the challenge and helps find the pathos beneath the puppetry.

WE SAY: A wonderful blend of Dickens’ ultimate Christmas fable and the beloved puppets, plus a star turn from living legend Michael Caine. It’s the perfect time to watch it on the big screen again – after all, there’s only one more sleep ’til Christmas…
