He's back! Mickey Mouse - in his first new motion picture in 30 years. It is an adaptation of the Charles Dickens classic A Christmas Carol, featuring Scrooge McDuck as his namesake and inspiration Ebenezer Scrooge and Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchit. This film was based on a 1972 audio musical entitled Disney's A Christmas Carol. It is a twenty-four minute animated short film produced by Walt Disney Productions as an accompaniment to a re-release of The Rescuers.. Mickey's Christmas Carol Wiki
This was a part of my childhood and it was fantastic when I first saw it
This looks pretty good for little kids and adult for people who want to see the story of Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens but don’t want to see the actual one Also I like how are used Donald duck is Fred and. Via old duck as Ebenezer Scrooge
This movie is great, and fun. I love this movie a lot. I love all the Disney characters. Mickey, Minnie, Donald and all of the Disney characters are my favorite in this movie. This is one of my favorite movies ever.
This is a short film, that is also shown in Micky's Magical Christmas. This came out a few years after The Fox and the Hound.
This cartoon takes me straight back to childhood & that's priceless, so many memories, sitting by the fire, presents under the tree, snow falling & watching this as the tree flickers & the thought of Santa coming, thank you for adding this movie!!
There are countless versions of this Charles Dickens classic, most of which stay true to the story's 'dark' narrative. It is set in Victorian England, in the mid- to late-1800s (during the Industrial Revolution), a time when the struggle to survive was brutal for nearly everyone, except the few in possession of great wealth. These misers, not only lacked any compassion or empathy for the poor, but continued to take from the as they (men, women, and children) were sick, starving, and dying. Not a story I would normally recommend as appropriate for young children. Dickens wrote an introduction where he refers to his "ghostly little book", ending with: "May it haunt their houses pleasantly, and no one wish to lay it." In a way that only the great minds of Disney can, they took the essential plot points and found a way to convey the moral of the story, in a way that is completely child/family friendly and still entertaining and endearing to adults. From the ghosts that visit Ebenezer in the night to show him the consequences of his many, selfish, and cruel choices in life, including the struggles that the poor, starving family of Scrooger's underpaid, and overworked, employee Mr. Cratchit, has had to endure. The hardest to contemplate is what Cratchit's youngest boy, Tiny Tim who is physically disabled, must endure (and his parents and siblings must witness) who we learn is destined to die, because his body is particularly weak and vulnerable to starvation. It is a unique experience to have watched this as a child and as an adult parent with my young son. I could not have decided to do that as easily without this perspective. As a child, it wasn't the sadness I felt from seeing the starving family and even the anger that little Tiny Tim would die because a selfish old man cared for money over everything and everyone, that I dwelled on or remembered after watching the movie. It was that Scrooge finally saw these people and their lives, and his assumptions about those "beggars" was wrong and realized his actions directly caused the pain and suffering that the Cratchit family (& others like them) endured, not their actions or choices. He wasn't a monster, he was ignorant and stubborn no more and determined to make things right in the best possible ways. I would recommend this movie to people of all ages, but it's parents of young children that I'm writing this for. I have appreciated the reviews I've partially relied on in the past, in addition to knowing my son's sensitivities and understanding.
Rip-off!! Do not buy!
A kid under 3 years old has difficult time to stay concentrated in front of a show more than 20 minutes. That is why this show is 20 minutes long. Aimed at Kids 3 and under. Now $20 is a joke I admit. The movie should cost around $10 by Disney standards.
This is a cute video that I used to have on VHS a long time ago. However, it is not worth paying $20 for a digital download. Disney is gouging as usual. This should be about $10.
I’ve been watching this film since I was little, when it was broadcast on CBS or whatever channel it was back the mid-1990s. It reminds me of my childhood of course, but this iteration of the classic Ebenezer Scrooge is timeless and will appeal to adults and children. It has depth, perfectly balancing the light and dark of the original story. You won’t go wrong owning this film.
Just wanted to say to all the other reviews that were sad it's only for rent. If you click on the trailer, a "Buy" link will appear at the top of the iTunes window for a short time.
Childhood holiday favourite, I would pay full price to own this again, since this only seems to run on Christmas Eve. Not interested in a 'one time' rental for $4.99, great movie!
Love this. iTunes, please make this available to purchase like it’s available on Amazon Instant Video in the US.
... Watching the Wondeful World of Disney. Wish it was for sale so I could buy it and watch with my kids every year. Instead it's only for rent.
