Loved it!
19 April 2004 | by (Lancaster, PA) – See all my reviews

Well, I HAVE seen this version and I loved it. The animation was very well done, the music was great, and Tim Curry did a wonderful job of portraying Scrooge. I don't think that anything Disney has to offer can compare. The story in this version of course deviates from the original story, the ghost of Christmas Past is a child rather than the usual middle-aged spirit and the ghost of Christmas Present is Whoopi Goldberg with a preposterous accent. What can I say? It was made for kids to enjoy and my kids loved it and watched it again and again, as did I. Those who are purists for the story should stick with Mr Magoo. There isn't anything objectionable in this version and I'd love to see a similar treatment of David Copperfield, Oliver Twist, Great Expectations, etc... instead of the usual crap that is on network TV
