The Muppet characters tell their version of the classic tale of an old and bitter miser's redemption on Christmas Eve.
This is one of the very few adaptations that shows how ill Tiny Tim is as he coughs several time during the Cratchit Christmas dinner implying he has the whooping cough or pneumonia which was quite common in Victorian times where this film is set.
Ghost of Christmas Past:
There was of course, another Christmas Eve with this young woman. Some years later.
Ebenezer Scrooge: Oh please... do not show me that Christmas.
When Cratchit is singing and carrying Tiny Tim down the street on his shoulders, the floor keeps moving underneath him after he stops walking.
The closing credits include a credit for "Rizzo's personal caterer".
Older American TV broadcasts of the film not only use "When Love is Gone" (as in the VHS), but also has an extended version of "Marley and Marley" with an extra verse reinstated. The full version of the song can be heard on the soundtrack album.
