Introducing Sleigh Bell Cinema

UPDATE: The show was still under review with iTunes when this post went live, but it's now been approved and is available for your subscribing pleasure.

Now that Halloween is done, we've got another holiday to cover. If you've been hanging out with me here for a while, you know that Christmas is a big deal to me and hopefully you're looking forward to this year's installment of the Christmas Carol Project. But before we get to that, we have some Christmas movies to talk about.

I've started a new podcast called Sleigh Bell Cinema. It's going to be a seasonal podcast covering a wide variety of Christmas movies. In the first episode, I'm joined by Mike Westfall, whose TV-focused Advent Calendar House podcast is a direct inspiration for Sleigh Bell Cinema. And of course, we have to start with an adaptation of A Christmas Carol.

After a quick conversation about the Muppets' relationship with Christmas in general, we talk about one of our favorite Christmas Carol adaptations, The Muppet Christmas Carol. What makes it a good adaptation? How does it rank with other Muppet films? Did it get the casting right? Is there anything that it doesn't do so well? I hope you'll tune in for more fun than falling down a chimney and landing on a flaming hot goose.

Awesome! Is it going to be available via iTunes? I found the Advent Calendar House one you mentioned, but cannot find your Sleigh Bell Cinema. Regardless, hood luck with it! Sounds like fun!

Thanks, fellas! I've updated the post with a link to the iTunes page. I was a little quick on the trigger with the post and iTunes was still reviewing the show, but it's approved and available now.
