25 Days of Christmas - Day 10: The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)

My Rating: 5 out of 5

Favorite Song Featured: “It Feels Like Christmas” by Ghost of Christmas Present

Director: Brian Henson

Writers: Jerry Juhl (screenplay), Charles Dickens (novel)

Composer: Miles Goodman

Starring: Michael Caine, Steven Mackintosh, Dave Goelz, Steve Whitmire, Jerry Nelson, Frank Oz, David Rudman, Meredith Braun, Robin Weaver and Jessica Fox

Trivia:

  • The sequence with “The Love is Gone” was originally removed in the theatrical release due to Disney feeling it slowed down the pace of the movie. While the “Kermit’s 50th Anniversary Edition” includes an Extended Version with the scene, the “20th Anniversary Edition” (released in 2012) did not.
  • This was the first Muppet film released after the passing of both creator Jim Henson and fellow puppeteer Richard Hunt. It is dedicated in their memory.
  • The Ghost of Christmas Past was a special puppet created for and filmed in a tank of water, then green-screened into the film in order to give it a floating effect.
