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!

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!

He would have been great. Tremendous actor and much missed!! 😻 💋

Me, too! Of course, I'd seen almost all of them. (They should have added Susan Lucci in the mix; we watched "Ebbie" just a few days ago.)

I remember seeing the Fonz as Scrooge years ago but haven't seen it shown anywhere since. Hey MeTV, show the Fonz as Scrooge film!

Got it first try. David Ogden Stiers is in the Christmas movie, “Beauty And The Beast: The Enchanted Christmas” as Cogsworth (voice). I watched it recently on Disney+, it being the Holiday season and all. It’s really good if you liked the first Disney Beauty and The Beast movie.

Got on the first try. Surprised they didn’t include Cicely Tyson. She was Ebbie Scrooge in her version.

So was Susan Lucci.
