-The Muppet Christmas Carol-

With a grumpy Michael Caine as Ebeneezer Scrooge and a ever optimistic Kermit the Frog how could you go wrong? The narration is by Gonzo and Rizzo the Rat. Note how big Rizzo's belly grows throughout the film, he is always eating. So make some Pop'n Corn (as the Swedish Chef would say),  Wassail, curl up with a warm blanket and your loved ones for a wonderful rendition of Charles Dickens classic tale, The Christmas Carol. With the charming Miss Piggy and her family share the true meaning of Christmas Spirit. Timmy Cratchit will melt your heart with his heart of gold.
