WHAT'S INTERESTING ABOUT THIS PRODUCTION:
Published in 1843, it is the most popular piece of fiction Charles Dickens ever wrote (and he wrote the book in only six weeks.)
There have been more than 20 film versions of A Christmas Carol, including versions starring The Muppets, Barbie, Mickey Mouse, and Mr Magoo.
Dickens’s childhood was much like the Cratchit family. He was the second of eight children, and his parents had only a modest income. Though the Dickens family's circumstances weren’t as dire as those of the Cratchits, they were always financially poor.
