Top five favorite Christmas movies Number 5: Muppet Christmas Carol. The first Muppet film made after the death of Jim Henson, this film gets a lot of hate from some fans of the Muppets. My family have always liked it and for me it’s one that takes me back to childhood whenever I watch it. I saw this one in the theater back when it was new and I still remember that trip to the movies because I had never seen the Muppets on the big screen before. While you might not like it the new generation of Muppet fans just might, so if you’re looking for some good family fun check out Muppet Christmas Carol this holiday. I give it four out of five stars mainly because of Kermit’s voice.
