Just got the Japanese R2 MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL...... The good news: it's widescreen, Dolby Digital 5.1 stereo (making this the only proper widescreen version released on DVD in the world that I'm aware of). The Bad news: it's the cut version!!! So I guess if you don't mind the studio-imposed cut version without "When Love Is Gone," this is the DVD for you but....what a disappointment Is there some kind of conspiracy against a proper DVD of this movie being released?? The pan-and-scam R1 DVD is at least the long version......sigh. Guess my old laserdisc isn't going anywhere anytime soon.
