5.0 out of 5 stars Two beloved classics combined
Charles Dickens' classic tale "A Christmas Carol" has probably been adapted for stage, screen, and TV more than any other story in the history of literature. Many have been really great -- the Mr. Magoo animated version, Patrick Stewart's one-man stage show, the George C. Scott version, etc. But one of the best is definitely "The Muppet Christmas...

3.0 out of 5 stars Be advised: widescreen version is not uncut.
This DVD contains a 4:3 version and a 16:9 widescreen version.
Disney Home Video reps have confirmed that only the 4:3 pan & scan version is the home video version which contains the full version of this movie. The widescreen version is the theatrical cut and does not include the song "When Love is Gone".

5.0 out of 5 stars Love this movie!,
This review is from: The Muppet Christmas Carol [HD] (Amazon Instant Video)
I have always loved this movie and being able to watch it anywhere is great! Michael Caine is terrific in it, too.
5.0 out of 5 stars A Christmas favorite,
This is one of my favorite versions of the classic. Well, you do have to like the Muppets first of all. I still have it on VHS (bought it when it first came out) but don't have the VCR anymore. Since I now have grandchildren I want to be sure it's around for Christmas time viewing.
It sticks to the story. Michael Caine is a great Scrooge. The songs are good--very "Christmassy." Having famous Muppets play the main characters actually works.
5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST!,
This is the only Christmas Carol that keeps the colsets to the book, other use certain language from the book here and there...include the old Alister Simms and George C Scott's versions, but this outshines them all with the use of descriptions and language right from Disckens...plus who doesn't love Kermit? Michael Caine makes a great Scrooge!
5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Christmas Pastime!,
This is one of those movies that I watch every year around Christmas! It never gets old. I almost feel like it isn't Christmas without watching this!
1.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised, wrong region,
This review is from: Disney Muppet Christmas Carol (1992) DVD (DVD)
Had to return it. It was not as advertised. MovieMars was really great about processing the return, but the DVD was advertised as new, and it was scratched and had fingerprints all over it and was clearly just re-shrink-wrapped. It was also formatted for the wrong region, so even if it had been in new condition, it still wouldn't have played in my dvd player. You get what you pay for, I guess.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great Christmas classic,
I generally am resentful of take-offs of Dickens, and especially of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. However, this is a classic in a class all by itself. "nuff said.
5.0 out of 5 stars A fuzzy, wuzzy and warm version.,
This is sticky but fun spin on the classic Christmas tale of redemption. Sir Michael caine adds dramatic depth to this film. Kermit, Robin, Gonzo, Miss Piggy and the gang are enjoyable in the muppet tradition. There are plenty of one-liners and special effects. This movie is pure fun!
4.0 out of 5 stars Loved it,
This review is from: The Muppet Christmas Carol 20th Anniversary Edition Amazon Exclusive (Three-Disc BD/DVD Edition) [Blu-ray] (Blu-ray)
They took out my favorite song but other then that it is still a great movie just like it always was
5.0 out of 5 stars Buying childhood memories,
This review is from: The Muppet Christmas Carol [VHS] (VHS Tape)
I bought this VHS because I purchased a VCR and a small collection of sentimental movies on VHS because they bring back fond memories. This movie makes the holiday viewing list most years. It's one of my favorites.
5.0 out of 5 stars Family time,
Clever, funny, a great family tradition. This is a must for the holidays. The muppets are a part of our family.
