The Muppet Christmas Carol

  • Why do you think a wide shot is used as Bob and Tiny Tim walk up the street?
  • What special celebration do you think it is and why? What can you infer from the clip to support your views?
  • What time of day do you think this scene is set? Why do you think that?
  • Do you think Bob and Tiny Tim are happy or sad as they walk down the street? Why do you think that?
  • Compare the colours used outside the house with inside. Do you think they help to set the scene? Why?
  • Are Mr Kratchit’s family happy to see him? Why do you think that?
  • Does Mrs Kratchit like Mr Scrooge? Why do you think that?
  • Do you agree or disagree with her?
  • If you were Mr Scrooge, what might you do after seeing the Kratchits at Christmas dinner?
