Are you ready for some holiday cheer? The Muppets Christmas Carol 20th Anniversary Edition, now available on Blu-ray, is sure to bring some heartfelt cheer to your living room this holiday season!
“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!” ~ Gonzo
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.
Inspired by the Charles Dickens classic holiday story, this is a heartwarming and hilarious holiday classic, told as never before.

My family absolutely loves watching Christmas holiday specials and The Muppets Christmas Carol has fast become one of our favorites. I have been a huge fan of the Muppets since childhood, and enjoy sharing this holiday classic with my family.
