I am amazed that a previous review got so many of the facts of the story wrong. There is no "prince" to save the girl. There are no slow spots. It is a fast moving completely delightful story. People who rush to write reviews should really check their facts and not give misleading information.
This is a production that can easily appeal to adults as well as children. It could prove a wonderful introduction to the works of Dickens for children.
BACKGROUND INFO: This one hour format television special was first aired on NBC on December 18, 1967. It was created by Rankin/Bass Studios in association with Aaron Spelling and Danny Thomas. Music by Maury Laws, and lyrics by Jules Bass.
This was the 5th television special from the studio, and the first holiday show after Rudolph that they released. This was the first time Danny and Marlo Thomas appeared together for a television show.Read more ›
Really? Just awkward.

Dreadful Christmas story. The original Dickens story is charming, though not really a good fit for young children. I was curious to see how it was made into a kids movie. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Sarra
