| sharply observed, witty, far too good for kids
Having seen previous Muppet offerings that were, frankly, banal this little gem almost escaped me. This film is best enjoyed if you already know the Dickens tale inside out so that you can relish the way it has been adapted to fit well-known Muppet characters and also so that you can spend you time watching for the throwaway comedy in the background. This is the same throwaway humour that Nick Park (Chicken Run) has become famous for. I recommend buying this movie on video and getting it out once a year, in the run-up to Christmas, as a family tradition.

Did You Know?


In an interview, Kermit the Frog stated that the most important piece of acting advice ever given to him was by Sir Michael Caine on the set of this film. His advice: "Never blink."


Belle: Another year before our wedding, Ebenezer.
Young Scrooge: Well, it can't be helped, Belle. How could we marry now? There's not even enough for a decent home. The investments haven't grown as they should.
Belle: So you said last year.
Young Scrooge: Business continues to be poor.
Belle: You're...


When Cratchit is singing and carrying Tiny Tim down the street on his shoulders, the floor keeps moving underneath him after he stops walking.

Crazy Credits

The opening credits feature the names of the Muppet characters as the Christmas Carol characters they portray. (Kermit The Frog as Bob Cratchet, etc). The ending credits list the voice actors and puppeteers themselves.

Alternate Versions

When originally showed in theaters, Belle's song "When Love Is Gone" was cut. Director Brian Henson protested this decision, but then head of Disney Jeffrey Katzenberg felt the song was too sad for a children's movie. The removal leaves the scene quite short and abrupt and damages the pacing. It was reinstated on all full screen home video copies of the film, including the laserdisc (wide-screen too), VHS home, and first DVD release, at the insistence of Brian Henson. For the Kermit's 50th Anniversary Edition DVD, the full screen version includes "When Love Is Gone" and the wide-screen version cuts the song. The UK re-release from Park Circus in 2012 includes the song.
