We’re getting near the end of 2022 now and while the rats who write our questions busy themselves with Christmas and end-of-year quizzes and complain about how cold it is at Film Stories Towers, there’s only one theme we could have picked for this Friday. With The Muppet Christmas Carol back in cinemas, and newly extended with the long-lost “When Love Has Gone” musical sequence, (more on that here!) this week’s film quiz has a warm Muppet-y centre.

Once you’ve completed all three rounds, you’ll find a link to a separate post with the correct answers at the bottom of this post. As always, this is just for fun, but please let us know how you did in the comments (scores out of 31 this week!) and give us any other lovely feedback. Insert Gonzo playing an instrument noise here…!
