Thanks for reminding me! As I've already mentioned on Twitter this morning, I've never seen The Muppet Christmas Carol, but I've never heard anything but good things about it, and I am hoping to catch it sometime during this Holiday Season.

I know you always post a list here, so I'm off now, in search of it.

I'm wondering if maybe I should start at, RECENT POSTS, 'A Christmas Carol' on TV ;-)

Favorite lines. I may not have every word precise, but:

‘It was the frog’s idea”. (When the rats asked for more coals for the fire, enraging Scrooge)

‘He’s selfish. And mean. And BADLY DRESSED!” (Mrs. Cratchit, wrt Scrooge)

“it was shallow. It was pointless. It was...short! We loved it!” (Waldorf and Statler, on Fozziwigs Christmas speech).

Watching this has been a family tradition of ours.
