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

This is also the first time that Alan Young provides the voice of Scrooge McDuck. Bill Thompson, who'd done the voice in Scrooge McDuck and Money (1967), had passed away, and Alan Young's voice is noticeably softer than Thompson's was, with a stronger Scots accent. See more »
Bob Cratchit's salary is mentioned as being two shillings and half a penny per day. In the original story, his salary was mentioned as being fifteen shillings per week. With Sundays off, that makes 2.5 shillings, or two shillings and sixpence per day. That said, "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is more an adaptation of the original story rather than a direct retelling, so there can be room for slight differences as in this case. See more »

After seeing the impressing TV movie A Christmas Carol from Clive Donner with George C. Scott as Scrooge I wish Disney made their version into a full classic. With today's DTV releases there's a market for it. Because this version is so wonderful, Scrooge McDuck is Ebenezer Scrooge and Mickey makes a fine Bob Cratchit. The spirits are good chooses casting Willie the Giant as Ghost of Christmas Present, Ghost of Christmas Past (Jiminy Cricket) and Pete as Ghost of Christmas Future
With animation by people as Mark Henn, Glen Keane, Randy Cartwright. It's my opinion that this short deserves a remake into a full DTV sequel.
