If Charles Dickens had access to the Muppets when he was writing A Christmas Carol then his classic novel may have turned out with a laugh or two more in the mix. Don't worry Dickens, your writing isn't too bad, but you'd have enjoyed a Muppet Christmas Carol stream, which is now available to watch from and get you in the spirit (so to speak). 

The Muppet Christmas Carol - fact file

Year: 1992
Run time: 120 mins
Director: Brian Henson
Stars: Michael Caine, Steve Whitmire, Frank Oz
Rotten Tomatoes rating: 74%

While the Muppets are here to make sure you feel festive, Michael Caine plays it straight as Ebenezer Scrooge. The result is that classic Dickensian feel which the original novel captured so well, only with a more festive fun edge to the tale. 

This was directed by Brian Henson, the son of The Muppets creator Jim Henson. He took over the movie after his father passed away, giving himself to the process. The result is a comedy that also touches on the darker side of things just as the original story intended. Just with more catchy tunes.

Kermit, Miss Piggy and all their pals make appearances bringing the laughs with them. A great way to get in the festive spirit and you can do it wherever and whenever you like using this streaming guide. So keep reading to see where to stream The Muppet Christmas Carol and know me better man!
