A retelling of the classic Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, miser extraordinaire. He is held accountable for his dastardly ways during night-time visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and future.Written by

In this movie version, Bob (and the rats) are forced to persuade Scrooge to allow them the day off as it is Christmas after Scrooge originally tells them he will let them off for half an hour. It is also implied that Scrooge is also persuaded to take the day off, while in the other movies and the book, Scrooge presumably worked on Christmas Day until he repented. See more »
The Marleys make a reference to "teddy bears," a named derived from President Theodore Roosevelt, who was born about fifteen 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. See more »

Light the lamp, not the rat, light the lamp, not the rat! Put me out, put me out, put me out!
Oh! My apologies! Um...

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. See more »
I love this movie. I am a big muppet fan, and when this movie came out on video I had to get it. Of course I was in third grade. I watched this movie all the time, and still do around Christmas time. Every December I watch this movie twenty times. Everything about this movie is great. The plot to the music. I especially like the music. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes the Muppets, or the story of The Christmas Carol.
