Goofs

When Jacob Marley (Goofy) tells Scrooge that he will be visited by 3 spirits, he holds up 2 fingers instead of 3. This is more than likely part of Jacob Marley having the same humorous traits as Goofy. See more »

Delightful Disney short..."I thought you'd be taller!"...
10 December 2007 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

Charming Disney Christmas short has ALAN YOUNG voicing the Scrooge McDuck character as Ebenezer Scrooge in this colorful, well animated Disney short from the early '80s. One of the more subtle lines goes to McDuck when visited by The Ghost of Christmas Past (Jiminy Cricket): "I thought you'd be taller!"). Other familiar Disney characters take turns at playing roles, including Goofy as Jacob Marley's ghost and Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit.

The Victorian atmosphere of London is nicely displayed and all of the background work is up to the usual Disney professional standards. The music is pleasant and only the brief running time is a bit of a disappointment, since the story is so compressed and is over just as you begin to settle into it for enjoyment.

A "must see" for any Disney buff and well worth watching to get into that holiday mood.
