For this week's podcast, The Bit Players join the Muppets at Christmastime for the 1992 film starring Michael Caine, The Muppet Christmas Carol. The guys talk about how the timelessness of the Muppets alongside the timelessness of Charles Dickens' classic novella makes for the perfect pairing every holiday season for a film that brings both laughs and tears. Speaking of timelessness, Michael Caine proves he is just about the only actor on the planet that can hang with thespians as trained and skilled as Kermit the Frog, Fozzie Bear and the rest, but the guys still talk about how things could have gone very differently had Ebenezer Scrooge taken things a little bit more personally at his nephew's.
