25 Nights of Christmas Movies

it's December first and that means my annual 25 nights of Christmas (movies). first up, is an all time classic tale with a muppet twist. The Muppet Christmas Carol has been a constant in my life. I remember the excitement I had when I first received his on VHS 20+ years ago. The same excitement is still there now into my mid 30s. The Jim Henson company does a remarkable job with the set design, the songs and giving narration to Gonzo and Rizo the Rat.
 Although some will argue Michael Cane is the best Alfred Pennyworth...I would argue that he is the best Scrooge. So cold, yet progressively emotional as Ebenezer realizes what a shit he's been. The cameos from classic and favorite muppets make this a winner all over the board.
