An old bitter miser is given a chance for redemption when he is haunted by ghosts on Christmas Eve.

Differentiating this TV-movie version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol from the hundreds of other adaptations of the same Yuletide classic is its tongue-in-cheek ambiance and a bundle of memorable tunes by perennial Disney composer Alan Menken and former Schoolhouse Rock lyricist Lynn Ahrens. Inspired by a stage musical which used to be presented annually at New York’s Madison Square Garden, this Christmas Carol stars Kelsey Grammer as tight-fisted Ebenezer Scrooge, who sees the errors of his ways just in time to oversee the “best Christmas ever” for his long-suffering clerk Bob Cratchit (Edward Gower) and “God Bless Us Everyone” Tiny Tim (Jacob Moriarty). On this occasion, the spirits materializing for Scrooge’s benefit include Jason Alexander as a neurotic Jacob Marley, Jesse L. Martin as a laid-back Ghost of Christmas Present, Jane Krakowski as a sexy Ghost of Christmas Past, and Geraldine Chaplin as a spooky Ghost of Christmas Future (in Wizard of Oz tradition, three of these four actors also appear as “real” people in Scrooge’s everyday life). Highlights include the song “Link by Link,” wherein the ghostly Marley and a chorus of wraiths perform a lively ball-and-chain dance number, and the outsized Christmas celebration in the home of Scrooge’s first boss, Mr. Fezziwig (Brian Bedford), which features among other things a “pole dance” by the Ghost of Christmas Past! Filmed on-location in Budapest (which sort of looks like Dickensian London, if you squint real hard), A Christmas Carol: The Musical won an Emmy award for musical director Michael Kosarin — and, alas, tanked in the ratings when the first telecast by NBC on November 28, 2004.
