Title: The Muppet Christmas Carol – 50th Anniversary Edition
Starring: The Muppets, Michael Caine
Year of Release: 2005
Storyline (thanks to IMDb.com):
Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, Fozzie and the entire cast of the Muppet universe come together to re-tell Charles Dicken’s immortal classic “A Christmas Carol” This was the first time the Muppets appeared on screen since Jim Henson’s death in 1990. Michael Caine gives a magnificent performance as Ebenezer Scrooge in a world full of muppet comedy and almost scary performances from the “Ghosts of Christmas past, present, and yet to come”.
This single disc titled “The Muppet Christmas Carol: Kermit’s 50th Anniversary Edition” was released in 2005 to recognize Kermit’s 50th anniversary.
