Did You Know?

Trivia:
Originally, Alan Young was not considered for the Scrooge role, despite having played it in the album recording. Reportedly, it was because Walt Disney Pictures believe he would not agree to do a voice for animated film. However, when Young learned about the film in production from a friend preparing to audition for the lead, he contacted the film company to request an audition. The resulting audition was successful and Young learned about the studio's reason for not contacting him. In reaction, Young responded, "Hey, I worked in television for five years with a talking horse. At this point in my career, nothing's beneath me." As it happened, Young was praised for the role and continued being the voice actor for Scrooge McDuck in later productions.See more »
Goofs:
Continuity: 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 »
Quotes:
Scrooge:What's she cooking, a canary? Surely they have more food than that. Look on the fire.
Ghost of Christmas Present:Huh, where? Oh, that's your laundry.

A Disney Christmas Classic, 12 December 2003
Author: travisimo from Pocatello, Idaho, USA

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)
