The one Walt would have been proud of.
This is a true gem. Call it Disney's "It's a Wonderful Life". A short
fantastic story by Charles Dickens with a great message for all of us
during the holidays. First of all i want to thank the screenwriters who
successfully adapted the story into a Disney setting: Mickey Mouse as
Bob Cratchit, Jiminy Cricket as one of the Christmas ghosts, etc. Great
job ! The drawings are perfect again. These could have been easily made
by Disney's Nine Old Men. Look at those houses, the ghost of Christmas
Yet to Come. All beautiful ! And above all there is this heartwarming
story with some touching scenes. (Tiny Tim's Funeral)
10/10 Truly, the best Disney short and probably the one that Walt would
have been proud of..

This is a great way to introduce kids to the classic novel..
Space Jam is GREAT. It was one of my favorite movies growing up as a kid. Definitely a must watch. .
Mickey's 1983 Christmas Carol takes me back to my childhood. This is a classic Christmas movie that everyone should see, especially at a young age. Loved it then, love it now..
like to watch.
'twas the night before Christmas and all through the house, some spirits took a Scrooge to see Mickey Mouse.
Just as I am unable to separate my happy memory of seeing my first
Disney film in the cinema when I was a wee lad (it was a re-release of
The Jungle Book) I am also unable to stop myself from grinning broadly
whenever I get a chance to catch this delightful animated short that
was screened before the main event, to my absolute pleasure.
Taking the classic Dickens tale as it's centre, this is obviously a
truncated piece and is missing a lot of little touches here and there
but it has all of the essence of the piece and uses appropriate Disney
characters in the right roles.
Ebeneezer is portrayed by Scrooge McDuck, Bob Cratchit by Mickey Mouse
and the three ghosts are Jiminy Cricket, Willie The Giant and fearsome
Pete respectively playing past, present and future. With Marley being
played by Goofy and a cheery nephew Fred in the form of Donald Duck you
have a great cast of familiar faces.
The animation is beautiful and, while six people worked on adapting the
story, it's worth crediting director Burny Mattinson and all of the
animators who created a Disneyworld in which to place the events of A
Christmas Carol. The writers have done a fine job but I always like to
leave most of the credit in that department to Mr. Dickens, due to him
having created such a timeless, joyous tale.
It's, surprisingly, not something that has become an annual staple
(well, certainly not here in the UK) and I really hope that changes at
some point as it's a festive delight well worth half an hour of your
time while you let all of that food settle in your tummy..
