Part of the 7th annual Holiday Film Series & Canned Food Drive!
The Muppets perform the classic Dickens holiday tale, with Kermit the Frog taking on the role of Bob Cratchit, the put-upon employee of miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (Michael Caine). Other Muppet repertory players such as Miss Piggy, Gonzo, Fozzie Bear and Sam the Eagle weave in and out of the tale, as Scrooge is visited by three spirits who show him the error of his self-serving ways. But the stubborn, miserable old man is seemingly past any hope of redemption.
