What We Thought:
I grew up watching the Muppets so I love being able to share them with my children. The Muppet Christmas Carol is a classic and is entertaining to both children and adults. It combines great music, humor, and of course a touching story that can be enjoyed by the whole family. Kermit as Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Cratchit’s wife, Gonzo as Charles Dickens, and all the other adorable Muppets make this movie even more enjoyable. Note- I hadn’t seen this movie since I was a child so I didn’t remember a song that was in the original called “When Love Is Gone”. This song is not in this new version. Some Muppet Christmas Carol fans might miss this song but for me I don’t miss what I don’t remember.
