Yes, I’m cheating again. Today was not the first time that I have watched The Muppet Christmas Carol. I saw it in theatres when I was a very small child, and I’ve seen it roughly about a million times since then. I’m pretty sure I could quote the whole movie line by line at this point, but I won’t do that to you. All I’ll say is that Ebenezer Scrooge may well be Michael Caine’s greatest role, whoever decided to pair Gonzo and Rizzo as a comic duo is a genius, and The Muppet Christmas Carol is the best adaptation of the book. Ever. Period. That is absolutely the hill I’m willing to die on.
So whether or not you’re celebrating today, I hope you have something as wonderful and as comforting to spend the day with as this movie is for me. Merry Christmas!
