One of the many things that my family and I love about the holiday season are Christmas movie. Once we hit mid-November, we break out all of our Christmas DVDs and take turns watching them all. A few years ago I decided to buy The Muppet Christmas Carol on a whim. None of us had ever seen it but we all fell in love with it. Today for the first time, The Muppet Christmas Carol is available on Blu-ray and I highly recommend you add it to your Christmas movie collection.
The Muppet Christmas Carol is the classic Charles Dicken's tale of Ebenezer Scrooge but with The Muppets brand of humor that we all love. Kermit the Frog is Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy is Emily Cratchit and Academy Award® winner Michael Caine as the cranky Mr. Scrooge. Of course all of your other favorite characters like Fozzie Bear, Gonzo and the hilarious old men Statler and Waldorf. This is also a musical movie with some catchy tunes that my boys love to sing along with.
