  • Quincy Magoo plays Ebeneezer Scrooge in a Broadway musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' "A Christmas Carol."

    There have been a number of adaptations of "A Christmas Carol" over the years (It could be argued that there have been too many.). However there have not been many musical adaptations. There have been good versions ("Rich Little's Christmas Carol") and bad ("The Stingiest Man Alive") but "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" is the best. This particular verson has very good music. The song that stands out in my mind is one usually cut for television broadcasts ("We're Dispicable") which is all the more reason to watch "Magoo" on DVD. Also, Jim Backus gives a great performance in this special.
