Charles Dickens: A Christmas Carol is a record published by Peter Pan Records. The cast is not credited individually, only as "The Peter Pan Players and Chorus," while the music is credited to Herb Davidson and Charlotte Sanders. Although the album doesn't have a copyright date, it is estimated to be published in the early 1970s based on its catalog number: 8110.

The album contains dramatizations of three Christmas-themed stories: A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens, and The Fir-Tree and The Little Match Girl, both by Hans Christian Andersen.



My mother owned this album and I can remember listening to it as a child from around 1987-1989. This was my first encounter with each of the three stories and I remember enjoying the cover art while I listened to it. I didn't hear the album again until 2023 when I found a recording on YouTube, but, only the A-side.

Album Art

Like with so many of Peter Pan records, the album's art was created by George Peed. The cover of the album can be punched out and bent away from the album cover to be stood up as a holiday decoration, though it's just blank cardboard on the other side.
