What to know

6. The Muppet Christmas Carol contains a subtle nod to Michael Caine’s name
Two-time Academy Award winner and English acting legend Michael Caine brought a considerable amount of prestige to the production, which was the first Muppet movie to focus on its human characters. Perhaps as a sign of thanks, The Muppet Christmas Carol's production design team added a nod to Caine's given name, Maurice Micklewhite, to Scrooge's 19th-century London. In the film's finale, keep your eyes peeled for a shop named Micklewhite's.

Can I watch The Muppet Christmas Carol on Netflix or Amazon Prime Video?
Sadly, The Muppet Christmas Carol isn’t available on Netflix UK or free to watch for Amazon Prime customers. However, you can buy and stream the film from Amazon for £9.99. It's a little steep, but it does mean you can rewatch it every year without fail.
15. Fred Scrooge did not lose his wife in The Muppet Christmas Carol
In the final Christmas feast scene, sharp-eyed viewers may have noticed that Scrooge's nephew Fred is present, but his wife Clara is not. In the DVD commentary, Henson shared that he received letters demanding to know what happened to Fred's better half. The simple answer is that the actress playing her (Robin Weaver) wasn't available to shoot that day. It's not meant as some hint that he's on the same rocky, loveless road his uncle once trod.
