I’m guessing a lot of people have the DVD (or VHS) of this 1992 gem. Guess what? Until this year, I’d never seen it! In 1992 I was an overwhelmed trial lawyer. The only kids in my life lived half a continent away. None of the beloved Muppet movies made a ripple on my pond.
What made me watch it? A tweet that said that the thing that makes The Muppet Christmas Carol work is that Michael Caine never winks. He’s Ebenezer Scrooge. These are not muppets. Or if they are muppets, he takes no notice. That intrigued me.
My cupboard being bare of copies of this fine movie, I rented it for $4 on Amazon Prime, and enjoyed the heck out of it.
