Disney's The Muppet Christmas Carol - 20th Anniversary Edition

When we were kids, we used to watch The Muppet Christmas Carol every year. My parents still have the VHS, but there were lines at the top when we tried to watch it last year with my kids. I was thrilled to learn that Disney was releasing The Muppet Christmas Carol - 20th Anniversary Edition on Blu-ray.


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!

Blu-ray Bonus Features-
  • Disney Intermission-An all-new bonus feature. When the film is paused, fans can watch and “cluck-a-long” to five classic holiday-themed songs performed by the Muppets Chickens and chums. 
  • Audio Commentary-All-new audio commentary with fan-favorite characters, Kermit, Rizzo, Gonzo, and more, all reflecting on their experience making “The Muppet Christmas Carol.” 
  • Frogs, Pigs and Humbug: Unwrapping a New Holiday Classic. A Behind the Scenes Look-Hosted by director Brian Henson, Gonzo and Rizzo fans go behind-the-scenes of the making of “The Muppet Christmas Carol.” 
  • Blooper Reel- “On the Set” Bloopers from the set of the film. 
  • Pepe Profiles Gonzo: “Portrait of the Artist as a Young Weirdo”—A Special look at the man, the myth, the legend the Great Gonzo, hosted by the one and only Pepe the King Prawn. 
  • Christmas Around the World—Gonzo and Rizzo take a look at how Christmas is celebrated all over the planet.
The Muppets have put their own twist on the classic Christmas Carol.  Rizzo the Rat has always been my favorite character, and my kids can now laugh along with me.  The Blu-ray is great quality and we'll be able to enjoy it each year during the holidays to get us in the Christmas Spirit.  I am excited to share one of my favorite Holiday movies with my children.

If you're looking for a movie to enjoy with the whole family, check out The Muppet Christmas Carol!

My kids just watched their first Muppet movie at my sister's house last week. This week they watch Fraggle Rock and I said, "That made by the same people that made the Muppets." Mica was amazed.
