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 »
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".
