A Christmas themed, three-part anthology-style video. The first part, "Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas", is essentially a retelling of Groundhog Day, 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
This is one of the most beautiful animated films that has ever and could ever be made. Sure, it has its annoying, slapsticky moments, but it's all made up for by enchanting plots, good characters (of course, they're Mickey and his friends!) and kindness hardly ever done in the real world (or in films for that matter!).
Basically this is a film with three stories about Mickey and his friends in the Christmas season.
The first story is about Huey, Douie, Louie, Daisy, Donald, Scrooge and who appears to be the three boys' other aunt or even mum. They all have a very good Christmas, despite the fact that boys are very badly behaved during this holiday season. Huey, Douie and Louie enjoy the day so much, that they wish it was Christmas every day. It turns out that after a while, things aren't as jolly and merry as they could be! Probably the least heartwarming of all of them, this story is no doubt entertaining and worth watching. 7 and a half out of ten.
The second story features Goofy, Max, Pete and some strangers in the street, when first Goofy and Max deliver a letter for Santa and then Max is told something very upsetting by mean old Pete. This story is incredibly lovely and touching, but (arguably) isn't quite the best of the lot. 8 out of ten.
The third story is absolutely beautiful, with Mickey, Minnie, Pluto, Pete and some strangers in the street. Mickey and Minnie are both not very wealthy at all and are having extreme problems buying each other presents. The most heartwarming and special of the three stories, this part of the film will melt your heart as if it were a pound of butter! :-)
Good for everyone who loves Mickey and his friends and beautiful cartoons about them that you would think you could not get nowadays, enjoy "Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas"!
