* AdaptationExpansion: In the original story, and in most other adaptations, Scrooge grumbles about giving Cratchit a paid day off for Christmas, but relents. In this version Cratchit actually raises a valid point in defense of taking the day off: All their potential clients would be closed for the day as well, so if opening on Christmas would just mean sitting around wasting coal.

Creator/CharlesDickens' ''Literature/AChristmasCarol'' [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin as performed by]] Franchise/TheMuppets. This is the first feature length Muppet production since the deaths of original Muppet performers Creator/JimHenson (Kermit) and Richard Hunt (Scooter). It is the first of the Muppet films (so far, three) that adapts a famous story with the Muppets acting both as themselves and as characters from them. [[note]] The other two are adaptations of TreasureIsland and TheWizardOfOz, in 1996 and 2005 respectively [[/note]] It stars Creator/MichaelCaine as Scrooge. Oh, it's also a musical.

** In the book, but not the movie, they have Old Joe tell Mrs. Dilber, the laundress and the mortician to "Come into his parlor". In the film, they have Old Joe as a spider and Mrs. Dilber as a fly.

** Scrooge himself gets a few in, naturally with a large dose of BlackComedy.
-->'''Scrooge''': "Let us deal with the eviction notices for tomorrow."
-->'''Cratchit''': "But sir, tomorrow is Christmas!"
-->'''Scrooge''': "Very well. You may giftwrap them."



* OhCrap: Bean Bunny is standing on Scrooge's doorstep singing a carol, but when he looks up and sees who's standing in the doorway he trails off.
* OtherworldlyAndSexuallyAmbiguous: This movie's version of the Ghost of Christmas Past. It's... possibly a girl. We think. Maybe. At the very least it's ''voiced'' by a woman. As the spiritual manifestation of a concept, it may not really have one at all.
