Critic Reviews for The Stingiest Man in Town

All Critics (5) | Top Critics (3)

The animation and Matthau help to create one of the most underrated specials in the Rankin/Bass catalogue.

This made-for-TV musical version rarely surfaces these days, and that's a pity, particularly since Rathbone's patented brand of hammy villainy suits the character so well

The Stingiest Man In Town remains a brisk retelling of one of the most famous stories ever told, a retelling that boasts fun songs, a good deal of TV history being made, and a great central performance.

Dec 6, 2018 | Rating: B+ | Full Review…

A traditionally animated musical special that's surprisingly emotional.

Dec 7, 2018 | Full Review…

It's still a superb version of a very good story, with some terrific songs. The special loses something by condensing the story as much as it does, but it's hard to go wrong with Dickens in song.
