"The Muppet Christmas Carol," is the best adaptation of the classic Charles Dickens story, full stop. It is fun for all ages while telling the original story wonderfully, has some fantastic talent (in human and muppet form with Michael Caine being fantastic as Scrooge), and is just superb. When I saw an article on Paste by Matthew Jackson going in-depth into why it is the best adaptation, I found myself nodding along the whole read in agreement. The biggest thing is that it manages to honor the source material while being another superb Muppet production. The film is now 30 years old as of 2022 and still manages to be a timeless piece of entertainment. It is up there with, "Elf," as a favorite holiday flick.
