It's the same old classic Charles Dickens story with an all star Disney cast. Uncle Scrooge McDuck is appropriately enough Scrooge and is visited by his dead partner and 3 spirits one night to remember the joys of Christmas.Written by

The interior of the house changes, such as the location of the dining room table at the end compared to what it was like during the scene when the Ghost of Christmas Present brought Scrooge over. For example, the dining room table is near the front door at the end, but earlier it wasn't. See more »
I'm looking forward to that wonderful meal of yours.
Well, I'll be doggone. You mean you're coming?
Of course I am! You know how much I love candied fruit and spiced sugar cakes.
I'll be over there promptly at two! Keep it piping hot!
I will, Uncle Scrooge, I will! And a very merry Christmas to you!

The film opens with a shot of Mickey Mouse's head, the way the old Mickey Mouse Disney cartoons start out. Mickey is wearing a hat and scarf, in keeping with the Christmas theme. See more »
Television airings on NBC in the 1980s and CBS in the early 1990s were an hour long. The first half originally featured Donald's Snow Fight, Pluto's Christmas Tree, and The Art of Skiing. Brief clips of other Disney Christmas shorts were shown. The second half featured this short in its entirety. Each of the four segments in the program featured wraparound narrations by Mickey, Donald Duck and Goofy. From 1988 onwards, The Art of Skiing was removed from the annual broadcast and replaced with various segments. The 1993 CBS telecast featured The Making of 'The Nightmare Before Christmas' in its place. See more »

An animated masterpiece!
Scrooge Mcduck ( voiced by Alan Young) is the most rotten richman in town, he's as sour as a grapefruit but has no feeling about others. He is haunted by his former partner Jacob Marley ( played by Goofy) and 3 spirits ( Jimminy Cricket, Willy The Giant from " Fun and Fancy Free" and Pete) show him about his past, present and future so he can change his ways.
A highly entertaining, well done and nicely drawn animated short. It's quite a memorable short, it's also shown on the made-for-video christmas movie " House of Mouse: It snowed at the House of Mouse".
