Bah, Humbug!

I'm too tired to do anything dramatic for my 2000th so here is a top 10 list of my favourite "A Christmas Carol" adaptations. (Click that to actually read the book. People still read don't they?)

I just stumbled upon a Vincent Price rendition and that spurred me into making this list (in no discernible order) and though it has cheesy special effects, I'm putting it near the top.

I don't know where else to start, so I'll start with the earliest one I've seen.

Albert Finney as Scrooge a the musical version:

I'd be nearsighted if I neglected to add this one:

Oooh, George C. Scott as Scrooge:

With ever-so-appropriately named Scrooge McDuck:

Gumby's Pony-pal Pokey has walked into a classic:

Michael Caine is inspired as Scrooge and the Muppets ain't so bad either:

Bill Murray has rarely been better!

Blackadder as Scrooge is incredible!

This one Bugs me:

#1: Alistair Sim. Best...Scrooge...Ever! Nuff said.

Versions that I've never seen but would like to, "Make it so!"

The Stingiest Man in Town (live):

The Stingiest Man in Town (animated):

Daffy as Scrooge:

It looks like a Scooby-Doo episode but is true to the book, I don't ever recall seeing this:


Doctor Who:

Finally, A Klingon Christmas Carol!

ps. I'm in NO hurry to see this version. I wish Zemeckis would stop the Mo-cap!
I do wish though that I could find the WKRP episode! That was terrific.

I was thinking of the WKRP version when I read your list. It was classic. Johnny Fever as the ghost of Christmas yet to come (AKA: Death)!
