Storyline

On Christmas Eve, an old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirit of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The deceased partner was in his lifetime as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now and he warns him to change his ways or face the consequences in the afterlife. Scrooge dismisses the apparition but the first of the three ghosts, the Ghost of Christmas Past, visits as promised. Scrooge sees those events in his past life, both happy and sad, that forged his character. The second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present, shows him how many currently celebrate Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows him how he will be remembered once he is gone. To his delight, the spirits complete their visits in one night giving him the opportunity to mend his ways.

An extremely bad video
22 February 2013 | by pinkarraySee all my reviews

Not enjoyable, I watched this dumb video last night and it was a waste of time. The characters remind me of the ones in 3000 Leagues in Search of Mother, I mean... some of the annoying kids do. I stopped watching this.

I don't like A Christmas Carol but this is the worst adaptation I ever seen and I don't see how it got such a high rating. It just looks so old and dark.

This movie was rushed, simple, stupid, dark, and unremarkable. Now, the start was mediocre, but the animation is rough and so is the film itself.

I think you are better off watching Rugrats, this cartoon was lazy and the person tried too hard to make it. I watch funny dubs of Rugrats on YouTube and they are so much better than A Christmas Carol.

Just because I don't like the book, I also don't like many adaptations of A Christmas Carol but I don't hate either one of them. They're usually boring and fairly interesting.

I won't watch this anymore.... avoid this and go watch Rugrats instead.
