Yes, I know I can watch them whenever I want, but the story isn’t quite the same in the middle of July!
Dickens’ story about the redemptive power of the spirit of Christmas, embodied by the ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, nearly always moves me, no matter which way the characters are re-interpreted.
I say this because my two favorite versions are A Muppet Christmas Carol, which finally answered the question of what Kermit and Miss Piggy’s children would look like (the boys take after Dad and the girls take after Mom) and the very first one I ever saw, Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol. The Ghost of Christmas Past scared me half to death at the age of 5. But I loved it. And I’m astonished to learn from Wikipedia that it was the first animated Christmas special ever broadcast. Wow.
