Cricket on the Hearth (1967) Review

The Duck of Indeed

In a past status update, I had mentioned that Mother Duck and I endured a misplaced Christmas marathon (by misplaced, I mean it took place in March) comprised mainly of lesser-known Rankin/Bass Christmas specials (with a little bit of Charlie Brown mixed in). I say “endured” because some of these were rather difficult to sit through. But sit through we must because I had become very determined to review them, despite the toll they might take on my sanity. This week I’m focusing on two Rankin/Bass adaptations of Charles Dickens’ stories, Cricket on the Hearth (1967) and their version of A Christmas Carol, The Stingiest Man in Town (1978). We’re focusing on the first one today, folks, and it’s going to really illustrate what I meant by “endured” because this one is easily the worst Rankin/Bass movie I’ve seen so far.
