Every Version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL Ever Made
When I was in college I came down with a very bad illness during Christmas week. I stayed in bed and between naps watched TV.

I think I watched EVERY VERSION OF A CHRISTMAS CAROL ever made. That included:

A Christmas Carol (Sim version)
A Christmas Carol (George C Scott version)
Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol
Rich Little's Christmas Carol
An American Christmas Carol (with Henry Winkler)
Scrooge (with Albert Finney)

WKRP in Cincinnati Christmas Carol episode
The Jefferson's Christmas Carol episode

As I recall there were also Christmas Carol episodes of Happy Days and a bunch of other TV shows.

Anyone remember any I didn't include here????

10. It's my personal favorite version also.
I have it on VHS, but I don't think anyone has ever put it out on DVD. I wish they would.

3. WKRP in Cincinnati Christmas Carol
I mentioned it up above but wanted to include it in the list here -

Mr Carlson is uncharacteristically miserly and has a visitation from the spirits of Christmas...

7. I remember that one--but there was no
"As God is my witness, I thought turkeys could fly..."

I have to repeat that line any chance I get; the BEST TV line ever.

15. It was on today, but I just caught the end of it. I can't find it on their
website, they have had it before.

It is very funny. If it comes on while driving, just pull over, cause you won't be able to continue.
