The Muppet characters tell their version of the classic tale of an old and bitter miser's redemption on Christmas Eve.
This film is the first production to exclude Muppet characters from Sesame Street (1969).

The Marleys make a reference to "teddy bears," a named derived from President Theodore Roosevelt who was born about 15 years after A Christmas Carol takes place. Since the film is presented as a theatre-play, however, where The Muppets use whatever props are available, this can be seen as deliberate.
The closing credits include a credit for "Rizzo's personal caterer".
