An animated, magical, musical version of Dickens' timeless classic "A Christmas Carol." The nearsighted Mr. Magoo doesn't have a ghost of a chance as Ebenezer Scrooge, unless he learns the true meaning of Christmas from the three spirits who haunt him one Christmas Eve.
Did You Know?
This version of "A Christmas Carol" is unique to all other versions in that the first spirit to visit Scrooge is the "Spirit of Christmas Present", followed by the spirits of Christmas past and future, whereas in all other versions Scrooge is visited by the ghosts of Christmas past first, then present, and future. No records exist to explain this change, but some have guessed that it had to do with running times and commercial breaks. See more
