Episode 234. To start a festive December, we watched 1992’s The Muppet Christmas Carol. Michael Caine stars as Scrooge, confronted by three fantastical ghosts to help him look back on the lost joys and sorrows of Christmases in his life, and look forward to how he can change and help his community for the better. Gonzo plays Charles Dickens, joined by Rizzo the Rat to follow the action and narrate this heartfelt classic.
