The Muppets Bring a Hilarious Twist to This Classic Christmas Tale,

And now, a word from Gonzo: Greetings, holiday movie fans and lovers of culture, I am Gonzo … or perhaps better known to fans of this classic motion picture as literary legend Charles Dickens. Are you ready to laugh, cry, sing, frolic, cavort and enjoy yourself beyond belief!? Well, you’re in luck, because this 20th Anniversary Edition of Disney’s “The Muppet Christmas Carol” is guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit that will stay with you forever—or at least until your Aunt Edna starts complaining that nobody is eating the fruitcake she brought … again!

 Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray with high definition sound and picture, so you can enjoy even more of my blue-ness, not to mention the incredible spectacle of Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor, 1999, “The Cider House Rules”) as Scrooge, wonderful songs by Oscar® winner Paul Williams (Best Original Song, 1976, “Evergreen” from “A Star Is Born”) and, of course, my pal Rizzo the Rat as … well, Rizzo the Rat.  This is a heartwarming and hilarious holiday classic, told as never before by yours truly!  Yule love it!

This Blu-ray disc brings together two of my family’s favorite things- A Christmas Carol story and The Muppets.  My husband and I grew up with The Muppets and I’ve always had a special affinity for Miss Piggy.  I remember wanting to “be” her as a kid, never mind the fact that she is technically a puppet:)  And A Christmas Carol is story that plays an important part for us every Christmas, however the story can be a bit scary.  Since our children are still so little, some of the versions of the story can be bit too much for them.   This Muppets take is a perfect fit.  It still imparts the classic story to my children, but in an entirely child friendly way.

My family enjoys snuggling together in front of the fire, munching popcorn, and watching special holiday movies- you can bet this movie will be on our list this Christmas and many more Christmases to come.

The Muppet Christmas Carol- 20th Anniversary Edition is a great way to celebrate the season!
