Parent & Baby: The Muppet Christmas Carol
G85 min

Director: Brian Henson Starring:Michael Caine, Frank Oz, Steve Whitmire, Dave Goelz Released:Wed 20 Dec 2023


What happens when you give a classic Dickens story the Muppet treatment? A lot of laughs, songs and a terrific story too! Michael Caine (who just retired from acting this year) takes on the part of miserable old miser Ebenezer Scrooge in this liberal but fun adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

The beak-nosed Gonzo takes on the role of Dickens and narrates the tale, along with the help of Rizzo the Rat. They take us on a journey through a dank London, filled with all your favourite Muppets - and lots of talking vegetables too. Important components of the Dickens story remain, with Scrooge presiding over the destinies of those who cannot meet their debts. But his deceased business partners visit him one night, promising that he can’t continue his meanness. And so, he is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past, present, and future.
