We’re talking about Minutes 81-82 of The Muppet Christmas Carol, in which “Thankful Heart” concludes as Scrooge distributes gifts to shocked recipients. With special guest Cam Garrity of the Puppet Tears podcast!
PLUS: Acting without speaking! Has life really improved for mouses? An anachronistic gesture! Did Bob Cratchit replace Kermit’s personality? And speak into our ear trumpets, sonny!
IMPORTANT NOTE: In this episode, Anthony mentions a now-defunct McDonald’s location called “Rock ‘n’ Roll McDonald’s” in Bismarck, North Dakota. Those who are familiar with the Wesley Willis song of the same name, and who are curious whether there is a connection, will find it interesting to know that, in fact, Willis’s song was inspired by the rock ‘n’ roll-themed McDonald’s flagship restaurant in Chicago, which abandoned that theming in 2017. The similarly-themed Bismarck location was also known as the McDonald’s Rock ‘n’ Roll Cafe. We have been unable to determine as yet whether Wesley Willis ever visited that location.
