"The Muppet Christmas Carol" (1992)
Yes, bad puns and manic earnestness make this a Muppet movie first ("Light the candle, not the rat!") and a classic second. But a puppet show feels truer to the 19th century than many a Technicolor retelling of Dickens' 1843 novella. The stuffed cast, with Kermit as Bob Crachit, gets you in your gizzard, and the transformation of the reptilian Michael Caine into Good Scrooge is a bona fide Christmas miracle.
