To celebrate, they sat down for an interview with Brett Goldstein (Ted Lasso and Thor: Love and Thunder).

Goldstein is an on the record and obsessed Muppets fan. So much so, he has done an entire 6-minute melody of A Muppet Christmas Carol, complete with costume changes.

I think it’s safe to say that he is more than qualified to host this interview. Brett got to sit down with Kermit, Miss Piggy, Robin, and Gonzo about “the greatest film of all time”.

A Muppet Christmas Carol is a cinematic adaptation of Charles Dicken’s classic A Christmas Carol. This particular version of the story actually uses more of the original text than any other adaptation.

Even if that means we get to see a pig tell off a grown man, or a ‘whatever’ and a rat slam into the side of a church, or even a frog ice skate.

This Muppet filled holiday classic sees one of the greatest ‘human’ actors of all time play opposite Kermit- Sir Michael Caine. It’s an honor for an actor to be asked to play a part in a Muppet Movie, and Caine is part of a long list of actors that have had that privilege.
