The Muppets are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of The Muppets Christmas Carol with a brand new, special edition Blu-Ray/Digital Copy Combo. It released on November 6th. Wow, it’s really been 20 years since the coolest puppets on the planet first did their special version of Charles Dickens A Christmas Carol? Sheesh, I feel old. I still remember watching it way back when I was a kid. That was during the height of the Muppets popularity, and I’m so thrilled to see them making such a come back lately!
In the Muppets Christmas Carol, my favorite Muppet, Gonzo, narrates the tale as Charles Dickens. Kermit, of course, plays Bob Cratchett, with Miss Piggy as his wife. Never in the history of the world has there been a more bizarre couple!

This was Jacob first chance to experience the Muppets Christmas Carol. Despite my attempts to get him into the show years ago, he resisted and only recently discovered the show when the newest movie came out. He loves the story of the 3 spirits who visit Scrooge, so he was really into this one. Maybe now I can get him to watch DVDs of the older episodes!
