Scrooge U: Part XXXIX -- "A Sesame Street Christmas Carol" regifts footage from earlier Xmas specials
First of all, don't let the title fool you. " A Sesame Street Christmas Carol " really doesn't have a whole lot to do with Charles Dickens. Copyright 2006 Sony Wonder Oh, sure. This 2006 Sony Wonder release does borrow a few key concepts from that classic holiday tale. In that -- on...

Scrooge U: Part XXXIV -- "Brer Rabbit's Christmas Carol" is almost unbrer ... er ... unbearable
You know, if things had just gone a little bit differently, all us Disney dweebs would have had something truly spectacular to celebrate this holiday season. You see, 2006 was supposed to be the year that Walt Disney Home Entertainment finally released " Song of the South " on DVD. This limited...

Scrooge U : Part XXIX -- "An All Dogs Christmas Carol" is mutt ado about nothing
Well, at least there's some truth-in-advertising to be found in this 1998 home premiere. For -- though " An All Dogs Christmas Carol " may not actually be an adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale -- this holiday special is definitely a dog. Copyright 1998 Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer Animation...

Scrooge U : Part XXIII -- Beavis & Butt-Head says "Huh-Huh-Humbug"
Few would argue that "A Christmas Carol" is a story about redemption. But what happens when you try to retell Charles Dickens' timeless tale with characters that are utterly irredeemable? Well, you'd probably end up with something like that special Beavis & Butt-Head episode that...

Scrooge U: Part XXII -- Beware of the Bedrock Bug
There's nothing wrong with " A Flintstones Christmas Carol " that a sharp pair of scissors couldn't take care of. Copyright 1999 Turner Home Entertainment To explain: In its heart of hearts, this William Hanna, Joseph Barbera & Buzz Potamkin production really wants to be a faithful...

Scrooge U: Part XXI -- Yakko, Wakko & Dot deliver "A Christmas Plotz"
I got notes from a number of JHM readers yesterday who said that I was far too hard on " Alvin's Christmas Carol ." Though one in particular -- an e-mail from Trendy Trudy -- really stuck out. She said. What did you expect? This was an episode of an animated television series. You know...

Scrooge U: Part XX -- A "Christmas Carol" in name only
Over the past few days, we've talked about some of the different forms that "A Christmas Carol" can take. There's the fairly faithful adaptation (I.E. " The Muppet Christmas Carol "), the out-right parody (" Blackadder's Christmas Carol ") as well as that truly...

Scrooge U : Part XVI -- Jettison "A Jetson Christmas Carol"
There's really no polite way to say this. So I'm just going to say it: " A Jetson Christmas Carol " is lousy. I don't know how familiar you folks are with this animated sitcom, so let me give you a quick history of the show: " The Jetsons " was produced by Hanna-Barbera with the hopes that this program...

Scrooge U : Part VIII -- Williams wins an Oscar
Okay. I know. We all love those moments in "A Christmas Carol" after Scrooge has been redeemed. When the old skinflint tries to make amends to all those he's wronged over the years. That's when Dickens' classic holiday tale becomes truly heart-warming. But -- prior to this point...
