Muppet's Christmas Carol is one of the dearest and truest adaptations of the Dicken's story ever put to film.

Disney, when acquiring the film, felt it best to cut THE ENTIRE SONG where Belle tells Scrooge that their love had waned in pursuit of his business venture.


  1. It shows disrespect for the original editors and directors that worked their butts off for this film
  2. The moment of Sir Michael Caine singing along with his long lost love whilst in tear is lost
  3. The reprise at the end of the film loses all artistic weight and merit

And look.

We are going up against Disney.

And I get that it is the holiday season and we all have better things to do.

But this is a BIG DEAL!

This is the first Muppet film released after Jim Henson's death.

It was created to honor him.

The fact that it was cut in its whole is not only jarring to the entire flow of the film - it is blatant disrespect to the entire Muppet legacy laid out by Jim Henson.

Jim deserves better.

We deserve better.

We deserve a FULL cut with "When Love is Gone" - even if kids get bored for three minutes.

That scene isn't for the kids.

Honestly : this entire story isn't for kids.

Give us what we want.

Give us "When Love Is Gone"

Give it to us.

These are our terms.
