The Muppet Christmas Carol

Revealing mistake: When Rizzo falls down the chimney and lands on the goose at Bob Cratchit's house, he burns his feet. When he is next to Gonzo, his feet are smoking. If you look closely, you can see the holes in the puppet's feet where the smoke comes out.

Continuity mistake: When the song about Ebeneezer Scrooge is about to end, just as Ebeneezer is walking down the last lane, the first Muppet you'll see to the left when he has come down the stairs is wearing a red weird hat. Just a second after Scrooge has walked past the lady with the funny hat, when they sing, "If being mean's a way of life you practice and rehearse," you see the same Muppet with the same hat, now standing in front of Scrooge. She had no time to get there between the two shots.

Continuity mistake: When Scrooge is talking with Honeydew and Beaker at the end, the Grapes Tavern sign behind them keeps changing position between shots.

Question: Does anyone know why Belle's 'The Love Is Gone' song was deleted from the UK release of this movie? (It may be in some versions, but isn't in others).

Chosen answer: I have the UK version on video and the song is on mine but I watched it when it was shown on TV and the song wasn't on it, maybe it's something to do with the length of the film? I dunno but it's definitely on the UK release that I've got.
