Scrooged At Your Sea? Join the Spree!

Scrooge seems to have caught on. Humans are becoming Scrooge from dusk until dawn. Are you a Scrooge at your sea? It is okay to admit it as all of these guys let their Scrooge fly free.


First he appeared in black and white.
I guess ghosts then were still a fright.
Even if they were the same shade.
Maybe it was the ooo's and aaa's they made?


 Then there was one before a bank.
He played chess with each money rank.
One game I'd want to win.
Taking all that home to my bin.


The you have the pajama one.
This Scrooge is just no fun.
He won't even spring for clothes.
You can see things as the wind blows.


 Then you have the pucker up one.
He is such a pucker-er come rain or sun.
No, he does not want a kiss.
He wants to make sure his money isn't amiss.


Even Professor X gets in on it.
He has such a Scrooge fit.
Then again he does run the X-Men,
So he needs a giant den. 


Beast is a scrooge too.
Who really knew?
He isn't even blue.
At least color wise in view.


Scrooge got to a Ghostbuster.
I guess it has its luster.
No wonder he won't do three,
He'd have to forget his Scrooge spree.


Alfred is a Scrooge too.
Maybe he steals at his zoo?
Bruce Wayne does have enough money after all.
Could take it when Batman answers the call.


Ace Ventura went all Scrooge as well.
He must have damned animals to Hell.
I bet he has one in his stew pot.
 He looks pissed that he was caught.


Even a Scrooge duck,
That hoards plenty a buck.
All others bow down to his dough.
Hey, cartoons, like money, are paper too you know.

So never fear if the Scrooge bug comes near, you are in good company at your sea. Everyone from a duck to Professor X takes a Scrooge spree. Did you know so many Scrooges were about? I just had to help you out. Now I am done with my Scrooge mass. No, I'm usually not, a Scrooge like little rhyming ass.

Later all, have a nice fall.

  1. Charles Dickens started it and now Scrooge is here
    His mere mention though will not bring the added cheer
    But one is in good company
    For Scrooge there are many
    His presence may even make one cringe with fear

    1. Can make one cringe
      As he goes on a money binge
      But like the money bin
      That would be a win

  2. No, I had no clue
    So many Scrooges outside my zoo
    Glad none reign in my little zen
    Sorrow surely would drip from my pen!

  4. Enjoyed the Scrooges one and all
    Some are not so very tall
    Some are bald and some are young
    Some expect a longer run
    A Scrooge is a scrooge by an name
    The title did not bring him fame

    1. A rich jerk though

  5. The first Scrooge is my favorite Christmas movie
    I really do think it's groovy.
    But the Muppet Christmas is hard to beat
    with two Marley's as they sing to the beat.
    I know a few Scrooges in real life
    and they just like to cause strife.
    One is a blog friend of mine
    and he can dampen a mood without tryin'
    ha.

    1. The muppet one was fun
      Not sure I've seen every one
      But mot at my sea

      They are nothing new
      A blog scrooge though
      Not sure I've seen that show

  7. Say what you will about his stinginess, but Scrooge sure had a mean set of sideburns. Well, minus Professor X. Sorry, Professor X. Telekinesis can give you a lot of things but a full head of hair is not one of them.

  13. Scrooge is kind of like Dracula

  16. I haven't seen all the Scrooge movies as the tale has been told repeatedly. I did like Murray in Scrooged as it was so funny.

    I'm not a Scrooge as a practice, although I have become disenchanted with Christmas since all the Black Friday craziness began. If I ever have grandchildren the magic will return and I'll enjoy it again.

  18. Alfred was Scrooge??? Ha! I want to see that version, just to see him be something besides the butler! <--and then as I was typing that, I wondered what else he's been in, and his list of accomplishments is huge. -_- I'm so out of it sometimes. I did like him as Alfred though.

  21. aw, this is so clever and cute! I like the pajama one (and your rhyme with it!). I don't know how anyone could be in a bad mood with a cozy pajama set like that! With that said, since it's Monday morning- I'm certainly a little scroogeful myself.

  30. I didn't know so many Scrooge's were made
    wonder how much each of them got paid
    would they share in their fortune and fame
    as they count it all by flickering flame

    PS - I like the one with George C Scott
    A Christmas Carol..I always thought
    the 3rd ghost was rather scary..

    I don't think I am a scrooge..

    1. I doubt they would scare
      Just look at that hair
      That was a good one indeed

  32. I noticed you left out all the women who played Scrooge in cheesy Hallmark and Lifetime renditions...good for you! Didn't Vanessa Williams play the role once? Tori Spelling? I guess it's technically not "Scrooge" if it's just a workaholic diva who sees three ghosts!
