It's the same old classic Charles Dickens story with an all star Disney cast. Uncle Scrooge McDuck is appropriately enough Scrooge and is visited by his dead partner and 3 spirits one night to remember the joys of Christmas. Written by

When the Mole and Rat stop by Scrooge's counting house, there's a shot of the clock where the time reads 9:00. Then when in the shot of Scrooge saying "You work all your life to get money, then people want you to give it away," the time on the clock reads between 6:55 and 7:00. See more »
With all the remakes of "A Christmas Carol," it's nice to watch one that actually captures a warm, Christmas spirit. This animated version is short and leaves out a lot of the storyline, but it gives you the basics. Mickey Mouse makes a surprisingly good Bob Cratchit, and the Tiny Tim is the only one from any movie so far who has actually won my sympathy instead of annoying me! It helps a lot that Scrooge has a more human voice than the other Disney characters. A lot of his dialog is heartfelt and touching.
The music is nice, too, adding a lot to the feel of the movie. The animation is clean and creates a much better London than most live action movies can!
This version is great to watch with kids - it is simplified, so it is easy for them to understand, but you will enjoy it too. It makes you glad it's Christmas time :)
