Christmas Tradition

This movie has become one of our family's favorite Christmas traditions. Unfortunately last year our VCR (yes, we still have one) ate our VHS tape of the movie. I am so excited that I received a new DVD copy in the mail today. Just in time for the holidays!
This movie is true to the Muppet's genre of bad puns, bad jokes and completely unexpected humor. It follows the Christmas Carol story through the narration of Gonzo (the one with the long nose) as Charles Dickens. Kermit, of course is Bob Crachet and Michael Kaine is Ebenezer Scrooge.
I am practicing some restraint, however and won't watch it till after thanksgiving. But I can't wait!

Hee-heee! I *love* this! Maybe I love it because we, too, watch a corny movie -- the 1970's musical "Scrooge" every year... on VHS.... I've watched it since I was a tiny girl, and now my kids and I watch it every year, curled up with cocoa and cookies and popcorn. It's the best. (We watch ours the week of Christmas Eve!)

Happy Thanksgiving!
