Kadijah Michelle (kadmich) | 2176 comments So the one thing with this book is there have been several movie/tv/stage renditions, and I wanted to create a thread just for us to list our favorites.

For me, I love A Muppets Christmas Carol. Michael Caine and Kermit the Frog are just fabulous. Another favorite is Scrooged. That movie terrified me when I was a kid, and now I get a laugh at the VCR scene.

What are yours?

RJ - Slayer of Trolls (hawk5391yahoocom) | 969 comments The 1951 film Scrooge with Alastair Sim in the title role is my all time favorite.

Also, "Carol of the Bells" is the song I always think of when I read this story or watch any of its performances.

Gary Sundell | 160 comments Favorites include the George C. Scott version and Mickey's Christmas Carol with its sterling voice work by the late Alan Young as Scrooge McDuck and the late Wayne Allwine as Mickey.

Gary, Mickey's was my favorite until the Muppet's Christmas Carol came out, but I still love that one!

Last year, I watched A Christmas Carol Gone Wrong which is so funny. Just to give you a sense of the humour used at one point Tiny Tim is played by a really tall guy. https://m.imdb.com/title/tt7766092/

Ziggy | 945 comments My favorite is the George C Scott version. I also like the 1951 Alastair Sim version but only if it is in the original black and white. I never cared when they tried to turn into that weird technicolor version

I think the most interesting thing most versions are a bit different, After reading the book followed by watching the George C Scott version it as interesting to see what was actually true to the book and made up by the particular movie version.

Joan Barnett | 794 comments I loved Scrooged with Bill Murray - I think that's from being a kid from the 80's!!! It is my sense of humor and it had a lot of heartwarming moments in it.
