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

Bob Cratchit's salary is mentioned as being two shillings and half a penny per day. In the original story, his salary was mentioned as being fifteen shillings per week. With Sundays off, that makes 2.5 shillings, or two shillings and sixpence per day. That said, "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is more an adaptation of the original story rather than a direct retelling, so there can be room for slight differences as in this case. See more »
Merry Christmas, Uncle Scrooge!
What's so merry about it? I'll tell you what Christmas is. It's just another work day, and any jackanape who thinks else should be boiled in his own pudding!
But sir, Christmas is a time for giving... a time to be with one's family.
I say, Bah humbug!
I don't care! I say, Merry Christmas. Merry Christmas!
Well said, Master Fred!
Cratchit, what are you doing?
I was just trying to keep my hands warm, sir.

This short film holds a special place in my heart as I remember watching it every Christmas on ABC. Then my parents bought the movie, and we would play it every year while we were decorating the Christmas tree.
Now, I get to watch it again on the 'Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse' DVD, and it's as good as ever! The use of classic and obscure Disney characters in this timeless Charles Dickens story is fantastic! Major characters like Mickey, Goofy, Donald, Daisy, and Jiminy Cricket fit in nicely to their roles, as does the rare characters (Scrooge McDuck, Pegleg Pete, The Giant, and the cast of Mr. Toad).
For Disney fans, animation fans, and Christmas fans, this movie is a great addition to your collection. For me this is truly a magnificent Christmas classic, and will be a favorite of mine for years and years to come!
My IMDb Rating: 9/10. My Yahoo! Grade: A (Outstanding)
