'Tis the season for love, laughter, and one of the most cherished stories of all time! Join Kermit the Frog, Miss Piggy, and all the hilarious Muppets in this merry, magical version of Charles Dickens' classic tale. Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor, 2000, The Cider House Rules; 1987, Hannah And Her Sisters) gives a performance that's anything but "bah, humbug!" as greedy, penny-pinching Ebenezer Scrooge. One fateful Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Future. Together with kind, humble Bob Cratchit (Kermit the Frog) and his family, the Spirits open Scrooge's eyes -- and his heart -- to the true meaning of Christmas. Filled with original music and dazzling special effects, this restored and remastered 50th Anniversary Edition of The Muppet Christmas Carol will become a holiday tradition your family will treasure all the days of the year.

I tried to play one of the special features on my mobile device, “Frogs, Pigs and Humbug.” No sound!!! Please rectify this problem. The movie and other special features work.

Out of all the movies based on a Christmas Carol this movie featuring the muppets is the closet rendition of the film available today and is both enjoyable for Adults and Children alike..some people are said that the song when love is gone is not in this edition this is the original edition that was released in theaters and the song was not in it and was added later but it is still a perfect movie without it the muppets always do a great job and will always recommend this movie I watch it every Christmas On a side note the missing song is in the extras section of the movie to watch

I almost bought this fanatastic movie. I thought it would be nice to have on digital. But they took one of my favorite scenes out, "when love is gone". Thats just sad disney. No thanks, i'm keeping my money.

That look like it even like the book at all

Bona fide, authentic perennial viewing.

This has always been one of my favorite versions of A Christmas Carol. Humor for kids and adults with fun songs. However, I am disappointed by the digital release of the film due to it cutting an entire scene from Christmas Past. Young Belle sings a goodbye explaining why they didn’t marry. While the song does appear in the ending credits, it’s sad that the context is lost due to the scene cuts.

This is by far the most enjoyable adaptation I have ever seen.

This has been a holiday favorite for years but in this version Belle’s song, “The Love Has Gone,” is missing.

Tebor 2017-11-23
I'm so happy "When Love Is Gone" has been added as an extra. I know it cannot be re-inserted into the movie without Disney doing a re-edit of the theatrical print, but this was all I was looking for as a compromise. Yay!!

I remember this show when I was much younger and it's great to see it again.

This movie is great, and fun. I love this movie a lot. I love all of the characters in this movie. I love all of the muppets characters in this movie. It is a great holiday christmas movie. It is one of my all time favorite movies ever.

This movie is one of our families favorite to watch at Christmas. I was very disappointed that this purchase didn't include both versions of the movie. The version with the extended scenes is the best which this unfortunately didn't include. I would love to get a refund but apparently that isn't possible. The movie with extended scenes is a 5 star, this version is 3 stars in my opinion.

I watched this this movie last night on Thanksgiving day. It was a good movie to watch.

JosiahMagnet 2015-12-24
A cute, fun, family-friendly movie that captures the fun spirit of Christmas while teaching about the TRUE meaning of Christmas! The Muppets did a great job interpreting the classic Charles Dickens story! Recommended for Christmas!

JeffroDH 2015-11-29
Belle’s song “When Love is Gone” is a critical scene. It fleshes out more of what Ebenezer sacrificed for his greed, and the closing song is a counterpoint to it. Disney: Please fix this egregious oversight. Please include the scene in the next BluRay release of this movie. You’ll sell a ton of them. I won’t pay for this movie until it is sold complete.

Jake Empey 2015-10-31
Disney, put the most important sene back in. I thought you where all about musicals. Why did you delete a song of all things!!! This isn't what I paid for!!! This isn't what I saw in the theater!!!!

DR WHO ROAD 2014-12-20
Yes!!! All family's should sit down and watch this movie get off the iPhones and watch it as a family we all need more family time together not for this movie but for just hanging around each other sit and talk to each other

Raycastillocrow13 2014-11-27
That scene wasn't seen in the movie why didn't they put that part when she's singing when love is gone it's suppose to be in their but no it's not either way the movie is good but it's not the same because when I had this movie on VHS it had that part in the movie

Snoopy4494 2014-07-11
If I had to choose 3 favorite Muppet movies, it would be THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL, THE MUPPETS (2011), and MUPPETS MOST WANTED. This one will always be #1 in my heart ( not #2.)

I own the VHS and blu ray copies of this fantastic movie but I am sad to say that they have cut out "when love is gone" from the blu ray version and many other versions, it's not apples fault they were given this version of the film to sell, the song was apparently cut because Disney thought that the song wouldn't appeal to kids. Growing up watching the VHS version (which had the song) I did not like the song that much, but as I grew older I developed an appreciation for it and it's beauty. I realize now how much more the song adds to the movie. Disney needs to release a version of the film that has the song, also apple needs the get the soundtrack...

I remember seeing this movie as a kid. I would watch it religiously every other night during the week leading up to Christmas day with Hot Chocolate and ginger snaps. Every song, every laugh, and every lesson never get old. If you’re looking to show your kids something great for Christmas, you just can’t beat this movie. The acting is superb (Michael Caine is without a doubt a superb Scrooge-and no matter how many other Scrooges I see on the big screen, they will always be compared in my mind to Caine’s performance), the songs and the score are catchy and inspiring, and the movie never loses a beat. As Rizzo says at the end, “Nice Story Mr. Dickens.” To which Gonzo (Dickens) replies, “Oh Thanks, if you like this you should read the book.” You and your kids will love this movie, and it’ll become an instant classic in your home during the holiday season.

so sorry that apple cut a main song in the movie?

adlohr 2012-12-24
We have watched this movie for years as a Christmas tradition. Loan our VHS to someone and it was never returned, so we thought we would just purchase it from iTunes. Our tradition has been destroyed with the omission of one of the essential songs and themes of the movie, "When Love is Gone." So disappointed in a waste of our money and tradition ruined.

reviewstew 2012-12-22
apparently it's not been possible to buy this movie from itunes for the past 24 hours ... very disappointing at holiday time.

chaney1993 2012-12-21
This movie is a classic! It is a tradition to watch it

KareBearPanda 2012-11-30
I grew up watching this movie. I was very excited to get a digital copy. However, I was disappointed that they cut the part where Belle sings. I didn't even know they did that. Anyway, I think they should upload a new version with the song in it. I love that song!

Sbear48 2012-11-27
The song where Bell sings was cut out. That song is one of my favorite parts of the movie. I thought that when I payed for it I was getting the whole thing. I would either like this to be fixed or I would like my money back. This movie is one or the best christmas movies out there. I would hate for everyone not to see the whole thing.

Alyssa Caudillo 2012-10-25
till I watch movie. It's a tradition to watch this every year.

Rachel Iavicoli 2012-01-21
Its the best movie in the world because ive watched it millions of times and also i cant get all the songs out of my head.i also was so inspired to re-write it in my version

wyldeflowyr 2011-12-23
I was hoping this would be the version without the song cut. Don't know why they would take out such a beautiful song:(

Lizzie's butiful 2011-12-21
This move is cute and good for all of the viewers in the fam.I recomend it highly.

Kabrowning 2011-12-16
This movie is one of my most favorite holiday movies of all time!

alec john 2011-12-12
Funny, delightful take on the Charles Dickens classic.

rebecca mueller 2011-12-03
This is one of the most charming movies ever made & defintely one of my very favorite christmas movies! Was a soundtrack ever available to buy?

Jewly01 2011-12-03
Hey! What the heck happened here???? There are missing songs! Why is this a condensed version? I paid for and wanted the whole thing!! Made me sad... I do love the muppets... And this is still a great version of the dickens story! So I will still recommend it... Just wish it was all here.

nemomomo 2011-11-27
This is by far my all time favorite Christmas movie! I've watched it every Christmas since before I can remember. It's such a great movie! I just wish I could buy the sound track on iTunes... But this is such a great movie for you and your family!

Carter Meintel 2011-11-13
Love the movie but it's missing a key song, When Love Is Gone. It gets Scrooge to start opening back up.

dysafr 2011-01-16
Amazing and funny movie.when I was little the ghost part used to scare me but now I just laugh and think of how lucky I am to have been able to see this livable muppet movie

memrmill 2011-01-08
I hesitated to watch this the first time. We purchased it after our first viewing. We love it. The music is fun and the characters entertaining. I recommend this classis each holiday season to everyone.

Beach Bum4722 2010-12-28
This is by far my favorite Christmas movie! I have watched it over a 100 times and do not have one complaint or suggestion. If you have kids (or even if you don't), this is definitely a MUST SEE during December!!

Prude 2010-12-28
Of all the versions of the classic story A Christmas Carol, this is the best. Not too dark like some versions and Rizzo and Gonzo steal the show as they narrate the story. Only bummer is the love song between the Scrooge and his once future bride was cut :-( from the online version. Must see!

sharksrule! 2010-12-26
I LOVE THIS MOVIE!!! Im 24 and I watch it whenever it on television. Then this year I found it at KMart and bought it. The one thing I didnt like about the movie whenever I watched it in the past was the song "The Love is Gone". I just thought it went on and on and on! When I watched the movie this time I watched the widescreen version and when it was getting to the part I was plesantly surpised to find it just skipped over it. I love this movie. Song or not people need to get over it and give it 5 stars. You will never find a better Christmas movie. When I have kids they will have the joy of watching this every year like i did.

Shandrake 2010-11-26
I love this movie but one of the major plot building songs was completely cut from the movie.

babygirl0 2010-11-19
this is my favorite christmas movie ever. im 20 years old and i still cry when scrooge visits the future and tiny tim died. I think its the perfect blend of the classic tale and of the beloved muppets. ms piggy is perfect as mrs.cratchet(?). i think little 5 year olds will think its a little scary but i think the older kids would love it.
