Movies for Christmas: The Muppet Christmas Carol – 14 December
I am a huge Jim Henson fan and really love The Muppets. Don’t get me wrong – I can’t stand the normal Puppet shows but The Muppets are amazing.
The Muppet Christmas Carol is a retelling of the classic Dickens tale of Ebenezer Scrooge – a miser who hates Christmas (ba humbug). He is held liable for his immoral ways during night-time visitations by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. This movie stars Kermit the frog, Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Animal, Fuzzy and all our favorite Muppet characters.
This is definitely one not to miss for the Christmas countdown.
Christmas Carol was the first big Muppets project after Jim Henson died in 1990.
The (terrifying!) Ghost of Christmas Past was created by making a special puppet that was submerged into a tank of water and then green-screened into the film to make it appear like she was floating.
According to the movie “It Feels Like Christmas” is the world’s most joyous Christmas song.
