One of my favourite versions of the story and the second best of the four animated versions I've seen
29 June 2011 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I adore A Christmas Carol, it is not only the Christmas story to me but also one of my favourite ever stories. This 1969 version is one of my favourite versions of this story(alongside the Alastair Sim, George C.Scott and Muppet versions) and the second best of the three animated versions I've seen after the 1971 version, the others being the surprisingly decent 1997 one and the dull and lifeless 2001 one.

This version maintains the spirit of this magical story, with all the pivotal scenes, characters and core of the story intact, and the emotion you get when you watch it especially with the Cratchitts and the ending makes the film even the more charming. The animation is nice and traditional, with nicely framed background art, good character designs and the shadings are lovely considering the year. The music is sparkling and really puts you in the Christmas mood, the dialogue is strongly reminiscent of that of the story and the pace is never dull.

The characters are engaging, with Scrooge very believable in both his grumpy and transformed guises, and here is one of the most touching and most humble depictions of the Cratchits I've seen. The voice acting, some doing multiple roles, is excellent across the board. Overall, excellent. 10/10 Bethany Cox
