Although I'm 100% sure that Muppets Christmas Carol is an excellent movie both in terms of acting and plot quality; the DVD quality that I received was certainly not excellent. I couldn't even watch the whole movie because the DVD was so damaged that it skipped from the opening titles to the very end of the movie. I was so upset. Since it's such an old movie, it's better for me to just rent it or wait until it comes out on a streaming service like Netflix or Disney+ than waste time putting a hold on it online; driving to the library; checking it out; and then play it at home, only to find out that the DVD doesn't even work.

This adaptation is a great introduction to Dickens' Christmas Carol for kids with music and funny parts without missing on the important message.

Oh, the Muppets, who doesn't love them? This version of "A Christmas Carol" is one of my absolute favorites. The film does show a maturity to it, as compared to the three previous Muppet films, and also introduced a difference in the directing style from Jim Henson to Brian Henson. The movie, which features Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge, is a sweet and fun take on the classic Dickens tale, with Gonzo playing Dickens the narrator aided by Rizzo the Rat. The songs are great at setting the tone and action of the moments they appear in. I highly recommend this film, though really young children might find some of the visuals frightening, especially everything having to do with the Ghost of Christmas Future at the end of the film.

I am glad that you got the muppets christmas carol movie i remeber every year i asked you to get it scince 2014 i think i asked you ever scince 2014 and you finally got it on dvd cause i did already seen the Muppets letters to santa and i think the funnies part if the movie is when the rats tale got on fire and there is another funny part of the movie too when my dad said this is a dumb movie and they say the muppets are for everyone this movie is about giving and spending time with the people you love something tells me that we watched muppets christmas carol last year on Spirt of Christmas i am very sure we seen it cause i saw a VHS at my teacher class .

The Muppet Christmas Carol is fun for all ages and a good way to introduce children to the classic story. The movie is rated G.

This is my favorite retelling of the Dickens holiday classic. It is true to the original story and incorporates all of the heart that the Muppets are well known for.

Not the Muppet's best--Not even close. Still funny though.
