The Muppet characters tell their version of the classic tale of an old and bitter miser's redemption on Christmas Eve.
Some people consider this movie to be one of the darkest and upsetting movie adaptations of "A Christmas Carol". Examples include the song "When Love is Gone", which was cut from most VHS and DVD versions, as it was deemed to upsetting for younger audiences, seeing how sick Tiny Tim really was, and the song "Bless Us One and All" is also considered depressing, while some fans also found the song "Marley and Marley" and the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come disturbing. Rizzo the rat even goes as far to ask Gonzo if the movie is alright for children.
Are you the spirit whose coming was foretold to me?
Ghost of Christmas Past: I am.
Ebenezer Scrooge: But... you're just a child!
Ghost of Christmas Past: I can remember nearly 1900 years. I am the Ghost of Christmas Past.
