Storyline

The six short animated films from the Walt Disney Studios share themes of wintertime and Christmas. In "Once Upon a Wintertime" (1954), a young couple go ice skating, where they are joined by a pair of rabbits. "Santa's Workshop" (1932) shows Santa's little helpers working hard to finish making toys before Christmas. From the Silly Symphonies series, "The Night Before Christmas" is an animated retelling of the iconic poem, "A Visit from St. Nicholas". "Pluto's Christmas Tree" features the mischievous Chip and Dale taunting Pluto from within the branches of a Christmas tree. In "On Ice", Mickey, Minnie, Goofy, Donald and Pluto all enjoy winter sports. "Donald's Snow Fight" pits Donald Duck against nephews Huey, Dewey and Louie in a snowball war. Written by Anonymous

One of my favourite Christmas memories!
5 May 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I love this video. It is sweet, with most of your memorable characters, and beautiful animation. First of all, we are introduced to an absolutely charming short Once Upon a Wintertime with the very nostalgic title music beautifully sung by Frances Langford, whose singing reminded me of Judy Garland's a bit. Then we have two funny silly symphonies with Father Christmas, featuring music by Schubert, and a lot of imagination. Then comes my favourite, Pluto's Christmas Tree, with the hilarious Chip and Dale lighting up an already charming tale of Christmas. This was very funny, with the increasingly silly antics from the chipmunks. On Ice, while my least favourite, had that lovely piece, Skater's Waltz,always played at New Year, can't remember the name of the composer, and although it is old, it never loses the charm, with Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck. I really liked the last one. Donald in that big coat was priceless, and where would we be without Hewy, Duey and Louey. This was hilarious, though I did prefer the more charming and tranquil vignettes. All in all, memorable and well worth watching! 9/10 Bethany Cox
