Did you know?

  • Sir Michael Caine considers the role of Scrooge to be one of his most memorable (to him).
  • The Ghost of Christmas Past effects were created by making a special puppet that was operated in a tank of water, and then a green screen was used in the movie to make it look like it was floating.
  • Look very closely in one of the crowd sequences. One of the background Muppets is a lobster hanging out of a basement window. This is a reference to the line, “like bad lobster in a dark cellar”, one of Charles Dickens’ weirder turns of phrase.
