Here's Where You Can Stream The Muppet Christmas Carol This Holiday Season

"The Muppet Christmas Carol" has been a holiday staple since its 1992 theatrical release. The film features Michael Caine as the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge (he's joined in the role by Russell Martin, Kristopher Milnes, Edward Sanders, Theo Sanders, and Ray Coulthard, who portray younger versions of Scrooge during his visits to the past). The only sour face surrounded by a gang of Muppets, Scrooge only wants to count his money and be left alone with his cold heart on Christmas Eve, but the fates won't allow that to happen. Scrooge's Christmas Eve night odyssey takes him from bittersweet memories of his lost love, Belle (Meredith Braun), to a visit with his nephew, Fred (Steven Mackintosh), to the Cratchit family to a horrifying visit to the future.

The Muppets portion of the cast includes Kermit the Frog taking on the role of Bob Cratchit with his nephew Robin portraying Tiny Tim; Miss Piggy plays Cratchit's wife, Emily; and Fozzie Bear shows up as Fozziwig, aka Mr. Fezziwig. The traditional tale plays out with the narrative help (and occasional fourth-wall-breaking interjections) of Gonzo the Great as Charles Dickens and Rizzo the Rat as himself.

Fans of the movie, folks looking to keep kids entertained, or families hoping to start their own traditions might want to know where you can stream "The Muppet Christmas Carol" during the holiday season. Here's a handy dandy list of options.

Disney+ and Hulu subscribers can stream The Muppet Christmas Carol

"The Muppet Christmas Carol" is available to stream on both Disney+ and Hulu. Given that Disney acquired the rights to the Muppets in the 2000s, this will likely always be the case. However, if you don't have either streaming service, the movie is also available to rent or buy from Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu, and YouTube.

Fans looking to expand their evening into a Muppetational holiday movie marathon can also catch NBC's 2008 made-for-TV movie "A Muppets Christmas: Letters to Santa" on Disney+ or rent or buy it from Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu, and YouTube.

Meanwhile, NBC's 2002 made-for-TV movie "It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie" is also available to rent or buy from Amazon Prime, Apple TV, Google Play, Vudu, and YouTube. Unfortunately, ABC's 1987 television special "A Muppet Family Christmas" remains unavailable in any official capacity, although it has been uploaded to YouTube in 1080p.
