Muppets & Elves
6pm - The Muppet Christmas Carol (1992)
A musical fantasy-comedy film and an adaptation of Charles Dickens's 1843 novel A Christmas Carol. It is the fourth in a series of live-action musical films featuring The Muppets, with Michael Caine starring as Ebenezer Scrooge. Although it is a comedic film with contemporary songs it otherwise follows Dickens's original story closely. The film was produced and directed by Brian Henson for Jim Henson Productions. The film was dedicated to the memory of Muppets creator Jim Henson and fellow puppeteer Richard Hunt, who died during pre-production.
8pm - Elf (2003)
On Christmas Eve in 1972, an orphaned infant boy stows away in Santa Claus' sack. When discovered back at the North Pole, he is adopted by Papa Elf. Papa Elf names his son William, but for short he calls him Buddy. Buddy grows up at the North Pole believing he is an elf, but due to his human size is unable to perform elf tasks. When Buddy accidentally learns that he is human, Papa Elf explains that he was born to Walter Hobbs and Susan Wells, and was given up for adoption without Walter knowing. Susan died and Walter works at a children's book publisher in New York City. Buddy travels to find him, whom Santa indicates is on the naughty list due to his greed and selfishness.
