More so than any other genre of movies, holiday classics are a big part of my childhood memories. And, since I was a child in the 80’s The Muppets is up there as my much-loved favorites. Has it really been 20 years since The Muppet Christmas Carol was released? Wow!
The 20th Anniversary Edition of The Muppet Christmas Carol has just been released onto Blu-ray! In this adaptation of a Charles Dickens classic: Gonzo is the Narrator and Miss Piggy and Kermit play Emily and Bob Cratchit. You can bet to see all of your favorite muppets take a role in holiday fun and laughter.
We got our copy and the kids took no time at all to watch, had they seen it before? I couldn’t recall, but they loved it. Myself? What a trip down memory lane, I love that feeling of nostalgia especially when it comes to the holidays. It’s become tradition that we watch a classic holiday movie while we put up the Christmas tree and decorate the house, this year I think this’ll be our pick!
