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

Like the U.S. release, which paired this short with a reissue of The Rescuers (1977), all releases of this short were paired up with reissues of various Disney animated features over the years. In France and (West) Germany, for example, it was paired with reissues of Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937), while in the U.K. and Italy, it was paired with a reissue of The Jungle Book (1967).

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 »

This short film holds a special place in my heart as I remember watching it every Christmas on ABC. Then my parents bought the movie, and we would play it every year while we were decorating the Christmas tree.
Now, I get to watch it again on the 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse' DVD, and it's as good as ever! The use of classic and obscure Disney characters in this timeless Charles Dickens story is fantastic! Major characters like Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Jiminy Cricket fit in nicely to their roles, as does the rare characters (Scrooge McDuck, Pegleg Pete, The Giant, and the cast of Mr. Toad).
For Disney fans, animation fans, and Christmas fans, this movie is a great addition to your collection. For me this is truly a magnificent Christmas classic, and will be a favorite of mine for years and years to come!
My IMDb Rating: 9/10. My Yahoo! Grade: A (Outstanding)
