12 Days of Dickens

To celebrate the 12 days of Christmas, here are 12 video clips of the Dicken's classic, "A Christmas Carol. Watch one per day, if you like, as we countdown the days to Christmas. I begin and end with the Alistair Sim version because it is my favorite.

Here is today's version:
Alistair Sim version

Jim Carrey Version

George C. Scott Version

Reginald Owen Version

Mickey's Christmas Carol

1910 Version

Patrick Stewart Version

Kelsey Grammar Musical Version

Muppets Version

Ross Kemp Modern Version

Richard Williams Animated Version



  1. I grew up with Mickey's Christmas Carol - how funny is that? I've seen most of these, save for the silent movie and the Ross Kemp. I think my current favorite is the Muppets version, since Michael Cain is my favorite Scrooge. He has just enough crustiness to make him a great Scrooge, and I love when his face lights up at the end. He's a fantastic actor. It's a really sweet version - not the most accurate, but highly entertaining. :)

  2. I have not seen Mickey's Christmas Carol - yet. There are so many versions and all I have time for right now are clips!
