“Why, It’s Old Fezziwig!” | Teen Titans #13 (1968)

The Teen Titans Christmas Carol isn't an adaptation, but an adventure inspired by Dickens' story. The Titans have noticed similarities between Dickens' characters and the people involved with the Titans' current case, so they're using Christmas Carol tactics to try to redeem Ebenezer Scrounge.

Kid Flash poses as a makeshift Ghost of Christmas Past, but there's only one part of Scrounge's past that the speedster references and it doesn't have anything to do with the miser's first job. So what I'm saying is that the Titans version skips this year's scene.

Mr May, I wanted to compliment you on doing your usual excellent job on the CHRISTMAS CAROL CHAPTER CLASS project; I also wanted to say that if you fancy a little Halloween breather from all the Joys of the Season you could definitely do better than SCARS OF DRACULA, but would be denying yourself a chance to see Mr Patrick Troughton (whom I suspect you will have heard of) play one of the better screen Renfields (though not by that name).

One was also tempted to ask whom you would Dream Cast for your own version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, but suspect that might be taking too great a Liberty (given how busy you are with the chapter by chapter AND with Christmas itself).

My Dracula watching has definitely slowed down for the holiday season, but Scars (and the rest of the Hammer series) are definitely on my list for when I pick back up. I've been debating the feasibility of continuing to blog about each iteration (there are SO many sequels and spinoffs!), but I think I'd miss it if I didn't. I've given myself until after the New Year to figure it out. :)

Oh, wow. Dream casting A Christmas Carol. That sounds fun! I'm gonna give that some thought.

Dream casting is a fun idea! Interested to see what parameters you set up and who makes the cut!

Mr May, if you're happy to keep posting about DRACULA adaptations then I'm happy to read your thoughts; as I understand it there will be a new BBC take on the old favourite unleashed onto Netflix on 4th January next year, so if you want to take a break from The Count for a while (but still like the idea of picking up where you left off) then you could do worse than to use the newest incarnation as a springboard! (-;

Keep Well and please keep up the Good Work!
