It’s Not Easy Being Scrooge Special Edition
The Muppets Bring a Hilarious Twist to This Classic Christmas Tale,
For the Very First Time on Blu-ray™ Combo Pack – November 6, 2012
I’m a huge Muppets fan. I grew up with these furry friends. My Saturday nights were spent watching The Muppet Show- and when Muppets movies came on? It was a big treat to have popcorn while watching. I’m more than delighted that these beloved childhood friends of mine are back and becoming famous again…and sharing these pieces of my own childhood with my kids is just a great experience. They laugh when I do, and there’s just something *so cool* about the shared humor, the silly jokes- the innocence of the Muppets. PLUS, the singing chickens are part of this BluRay. It’s hard not to love the chickens. Or Fozzie. Gonzo. Kermie. Piggy!
We had an early dismissal yesterday due to a Nor’Easter that came in. We came home and after lunch, parked ourselves on the giant bean bag, the three kids and me, and we watched The Muppets Christmas Carol together. We’re all excited for Christmas now, of course. The kids thought maybe we should put up the tree…
Whatever you do, DON’T miss the bloopers!! They are almost as great as the whole movie!
On November 6, 2012, the Charles Dickens-inspired classic holiday story “The Muppet Christmas Carol,” will
ring in its 20th anniversary with the Blu-ray™ debut of this family favorite.
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!
