Which of these actors has NOT played the Scrooge in a Christmas Carol adaptation?

Who never saw any ghosts on Christmas Eve?

Like Christmas songs, favorite holiday tales are constantly taken on by new artists every year. There is perhaps no single Christmas story more prolific than Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol. The heartwarming fable has been told and retold dozens of times since it was originally written. 

For this quiz, we're only considering screen adaptations, but we are including many different takes on the story. As long as there was a greedy character visited by three ghosts on Christmas Eve, it counts!

All but one of the actors below played a Scrooge-like character (not all of them were actually named Ebenezer Scrooge) in a TV or movie version of A Christmas Carol. Some simply provided a voice for animation!

Try to find the one person who did not. Keep guessing until you find the right answer!

  1. Which one of these actors has NOT played the Scrooge role in an adaptation of A Christmas Carol?

Which of these actors has NOT played the Scrooge in a Christmas Carol adaptation?

You picked David Ogden Stiers! Correct!
Though this M*A*S*H star seems like he would be a perfect fit, he never played old Ebenezer onscreen. You found it!

See you @ Name that Christmas villain!
Where everyone can take a guess or make comments to other quizzers.
There will be extra bonus movies for just coming by. Including entertainment for all. Feel free to ask questions, copy movie links and just plain join in the fun via communication. The MQ will be up until the movie is guessed and an hour to look over and pick out what you wish. Have fun doing so. There are no wrong answers but the first one to guess the correct movie gets their names put up for getting it correctly.
Good luck and enjoy

Okay, ugh….I just played The Love Bug perfectly fine from iPad to TV. However, in the midst of trying to figure this stuff out, I somehow deleted the Vizio Living Room TV choice. I played it thru Apple TV. Now I gotta figure out how to get that back on 🤦‍♀️

Oh, no! Poor reindeer! I one saw my uncle's cat trying to rip the head off one of her stuffed mice. All I could think was "thank goodness that's not real!" 😟

"You picked David Ogden Stiers! Correct!"

Got it in one. When David appeared on Star Trek: The Next Generation he peered intently
at a computer screen which had the numbers 4077 on it. An in-joke reference to MASH.

First try. I think I've seen most of these movies, except for Bill Murray's Scrooged. My favorites are The Muppet Christmas Carol, The 1951 version with Alister Sims, and the 1970 movie Scrooge with Albert Finley. MeTV ran the 1970 movie on Christmas Eve a couple of years back.

Blew it again, in exactly the same way.

Aha, a Kingston Trio fan. Or Bob Dylan. The Trio's version sounded better.

Got it the 2nd time.
Thought I have seen most of these actors in their portrayals of Scrooge(or a scrooge-like character), I didn't know that Henry Winkler portrayed him.
My favorite Scrooge is George C. Scott.

Winkler as Scrooge: "Boy, what day is it today?" Boy: "Why, it's Christmas day sir!" Winkler: 'Ayyyyyyyy!"
