2) The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
An adaptation of one of the greatest ever works of English literature performed almost entirely by a ragtag collection of felt puppets? Sacrilege, surely? Wrong! The Muppet version of A Christmas Carol (with Michael Caine providing a rare human presence as Ebeneezer Scrooge) is an endlessly endearing film which is regarded with a great deal of affection by a whole generation.
