Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy and all the hilarious Muppets in this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens’ classic tale. Academy Award winner Michael Caine gives a performance that’s anything but “Bah, humbug!” as greedy, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge. One fateful Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future. Together with kind, humble Bob Cratchit (Kermit the Frog) and his family, the Spirits open Scrooge’s eyes — and his heart — to the true meaning of Christmas.

“THE MUPPET’S CHRISTMAS CAROL’s warmth, wit and obvious affection for Dickens make it one of the greatest Christmas films — and literary adaptations — of all time.” —Charlotte Runcie, Telegraph

“No one can know what Jim Henson would have thought of THE MUPPET’S CHRISTMAS CAROL, but I suspect he would have admired the way it fuses Dickens' spirit with his and usually comes up with something fresh and subtly different from either. Taking Scrooge's advice, Brian Henson and his crew keep Christmas in their own way — which, I suppose, is the only way to keep it.” —Jay Boyar, Orlando Sentinel
