Yosemite Sam is miserly Ebenezer Scrooge in this spoof of Charles Dickens' classic tale. Porky Pig, as Scrooge's clerk, Bob Cratchit, is fired on Christmas eve for the unpardonable act of using coal to keep warm. When Scrooge evicts Cratchit and his family from their modest dwelling, heroic Bugs Bunny decides to dress like a ghost and teach the hot-tempered miser a lesson on the meaning of Christmas.

A Looney Tunes version of A Christmas Carol with Yosemite Sam as Scrooge, Porky as Bob Cratchit, and Bugs as the guy who decides to dress up like a ghost to teach Scrooge a lesson. Sylvester is Scrooge's cat, though he has no lines. Tweety plays Tiny Tim. Elmer Fudd, Pepe Le Pew, and Foghorn Leghorn appear as carolers. It's a rush job that tries to tell the Dickens story in 8 minutes while also giving plenty of 'Bugs torments Sam' gags. The animation is sloppy but I've seen worse, especially made-for-TV. Most of the characters are wasted and, like I said, the whole thing feels rushed. Still, the likability of the characters goes a long way. It's a watchable way to pass the time but not particularly impressive. Originally part of the "Bugs Bunny's Looney Christmas Tales" TV special.
