Days of Cheer: The Muppet’s Christmas Carol

This is by far my family's favorite movie to watch during Christmas time.  I've watched it for as long as I can remember.  And frankly, I think this version is better than any I've ever seen.  Michael Caine is an incredible Scrooge, I think.  But maybe I'm just biased.
