A Christmas themed, three-part anthology-style video. The first part, "Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas", is essentially a retelling of Groundhog Day (1993), with Huey, Dewey, and Louie reliving Christmas ad infinitum. Next is "A Very Goofy Christmas", in which Goofy tries to overcome his son's skepticism about Santa Claus. Finally, "Mickey & Minnie's Gift Of The Magi" recreate the classic tale of ironic Christmas selflessness. The stories are linked together by narration by Kelsey Grammer. Written by EJSawyer

In the "A Very Goofy Christmas" segment, there are lawn flamingos dressed up for the holidays. They are based on the flamingos from "The Carnival of the Animals" segment in Fantasia 2000 (1999), which was in production at the same time as "Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas". See more »

[first lines]
Narrator: One time a year there's a marvelous night, when enchantment and wonder spark and take flight. Each home fills with joy on this grand holiday, with hearts growing warm in a magical way. The rooms are all covered with garlands and wreaths. The mantle is ready, with stockings beneath. Lights twinkle and glow and bells brightly chime. The moment's arrived! It's here! Christmas time.

good family friendly Christmas
24 December 2019 | by SnoopyStyleSee all my reviews

There are three stories; Donald Duck in Stuck on Christmas, A Very Goofy Christmas, and Mickey & Minnie's Gift of the Magi. Donald gives his nephews a wooden sleigh each and they learn the meaning of Christmas. Goofy's son is losing his belief in Santa. Mickey is working at the Christmas tree lot while Minnie is wrapping presents at the store. These are great little Christmas stories. It won't become classic but it's pretty good. Mostly the messages are good. It's family friendly. They may work even better as half hour episodes. It's not really hour plus material especially for little kids with attention deficiency.
