Best Christmas Carol Movie VersionsAjkloth
The Top Ten
By far, the best presentation of this classic and beloved story.
Scott plays Scrooge as a real person rather than a caricature.
My all time favorite version
Starring George C. Scott, David Warner, Susannah York, Frank Finlay, Edward Woodward and Nigel Davenport. - Ajkloth
Well it's a good movie but I don't think It was the best Christmas carol apdition it could be one of but it did get a little stale at some scenes but I think Michael Kane does a good Scrooge impression and the muppets are very likeable and enjoyable here I mean their fun to watch in this movie but it's true that the muppets don't always do good versions of other movies and stories I mean have you seen the wizard of oz version of the muppets and yeah I think this movies a great way to introduce kids to the classic Charles dickens tale same with the Mickey Mouse version and to me it's just a heart warming fun family classic and I do think it's one of the best muppet movies even if it's not as good as the first muppet movie or muppet caper or take mathattan and stuff but it's fun to watch and if I ever have kids this and the Mickey version well be their introduction to Christmas carol and everyone who's fan of Christmas movies love Christmas carol because it's a timeless classic and I ...more
Stays close to the book, is special because it really explains Scrooge's character - and the change.
Forgive me, but there is no way that this could be anything but No. #1. I don't know a single person who would watch another version over this one. Many consider it to be the greatest Christmas movie ever made. It's success was so great that Alastair Sim reprised his role as Scrooge in an Oscar-winning animated short film version. This is like ranking The Beatles lower than Nickelback on a Top Ten Bands list. - BKAllmighty
This was just incredible. Such a good, strong, Christmas movie. Christmas is not the same without this. - iliekpiez
The definitive version which all others are compared to. Exemplary.

Follows the script more than the muppets
The best one. Should be top 3 - PumpkinKing109
I remember seeing this at IMAX in 2009. - XtremeNerdz12
This is quite a divisive adaptation in as much as, in the same way that Walt Disney's Sleeping Beauty is often considered a poor wannabe of Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs, this is considered by many to be a poor wannabe of Oliver!
A spiritual cousin to Oliver! Which likewise was a musical adaptation of a Dickens novel.
This one is BY FAR the best!
There are definitely some Oliver! Esque moments in this one.
I love how they fleshed out the other characters more in this version. Fred looking to slide around just brings a smile to my face. It just feels like a Christmas movie
This movie is the best that it's on twice. - Ilovestephanie
Wow Barbie is on the list. The over-hated plastic doll. Meanwhile action figures for boys are praised.
