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:


Jetsons

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)!
