Storyline

A Christmas themed, three-part anthology-style video. The first part, "Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas", is essentially a retelling of Groundhog Day (1993), with Huey, Dewey, and Louie reliving Christmas ad infinitum. Next is "A Very Goofy Christmas", in which Goofy tries to overcome his son's skepticism about Santa Claus. Finally, "Mickey & Minnie's Gift Of The Magi" recreate the classic tale of ironic Christmas selflessness. The stories are linked together by narration by Kelsey Grammer. Written by EJSawyer

A great direct-to-video animated movie!
22 December 2003 | by (Albuquerque New Mexico) – See all my reviews



This here is an anthology that tells 3 magical stories of Christmas, the first tale tells about Donald Duck's nephews Huey, Duey and Luey who make a wish that Christmas would be everyday ( sort of like the Bill Murray movie " Groundhog Day") then they unfortunately get their wish come true but it's the same day over and over again, they must set things right in order to make it a bright and cheery Christmas. The second tale tells about Goofy's son whom been told by meanie Peter that Santa does not exists, but Goofy must prove that Santa is for real then the last tale is about Mickey and Minnie who must give up their personal possessions for their Christmas love.

A highly entertaining, well animated and marvelously done collection of stories with cameos by Mortimer the Rat and Scrooge Mcduck. It's a fun Christmas movie, especially for the Disney lover.

9/10.
