Total Film - Simon Kinnear
As Scrooge, Michael Caine rises to the challenge and helps find the pathos beneath the puppetry.

The Telegraph - Unnamed
The Muppet Christmas Carol's warmth, wit and obvious affection for Dickens make it one of the greatest Christmas films – and literary adaptations – of all time.

The A.V. Club - Erik Adams
The Muppet Christmas Carol may be the most important Dickens adaptation of our time.

Empire - Caroline Westbrook
Vastly enjoyable despite the syrupy, soppy song bit in the middle (go make a glass of mulled wine during it). Michael Caine is perfect in the role and there are many genuine belly laughs.

Time Out - Unnamed
The three ghosts of Christmas are wonderful. Elsewhere, Fozzie Bear bears a resemblance to Francis L Sullivan in the David Lean Dickens adaptations, and there's a shop called Micklewhite. As an actor, Kermit can corrugate his forehead vertically. Good fun.
