THE SMALL ONE (special 1978): First Time on DVD! Not yet announced for any Disney Treasures releases so this may be it.
A young boy in ancient times brings his donkey to market. He meets a kindly man named Joseph who
brings the donkey to his wife, Mary.
PLUTO'S CHRISTMAS TREE (Mickey, Pluto Chip & Dale 1952): Previously released on the Mickey Mouse In Living Color Volume 2 Tin DVD.
Mickey and Pluto chop down a Christmas tree that is actually the home of Chip and Dale. Once inside
Mickey's house, Chip and Dale have a ball with their new Christmas tree home.
MICKEY'S CHRISTMAS CAROL (Mickey & the whole gang 1983): Previously released on the Mickey Mouse In Living Color Volume 2 Tin DVD.
Charles Dickens's famous story is retold with Mickey as Bob Cratchit, Uncle Scrooge as Ebenezer
Scrooge, Goofy as Jacob Marley's ghost, and Donald as nephew Fred.
It is still a recommended collection, as the two Christmas shorts featured in the Mickey tin had to be accessed through several chapter menus to get them to play. For a child, it would be hard to pick them out of the tin set if they wanted to watch them, so now it is much easier for them to see all 3 of these Xmas classics in one easy step. It's too bad the colors are muted on Small One.
I find it very interesting that Disney didn't see fit to fix the color shifts, and remaster the film, but they apparently found the time to change the funniest part of the whole little film.
That said, at least it is only a minor change... I still have my old copies, recorded from TV so many years ago. My old copies have gotten worn through the years. I love that I now have fairly decent copies Mickey's Christmas Carol, and Small One on one DVD.
It captures the spirit of the Holiday season, with one of the most beautiful stories to ever come out from Disney animation.
If you haven't seen it, I highly recommend it!
Add to that the fact that this DVD features "Mickey's Christmas Carol", and you get a must-have!
Also included: "Pluto's Christmas Tree".
Don Bluth's 1978 animated short,, "THE SMALL ONE" makes its long awaited DVD debut in this series...only to be DRASTICALLY EDITED so as to not offend certain people and to minimize the intended religious connotations of this timeless tale.
The bankers' song (Click Click, Clank Clank...Give your money to the bank) has been edited to remove the line "we simply cheat a little if we must" so the PC freaks at Disney can cover their behinds so as to not offend the Jews. In additon, the ENTIRE "Small One for sale" sequence is deleted....
Do yourselves a favor this Christmas and TAKE A PASS on this BOGUS AND INSULTING RELEASE!!! Find the original VHS copy of "Small One" on ebay. It has a brown slipcase and it is part of the former Mini-Classics series from Disney.....
...and by the way: MERRY CHRISTMAS TO ALL!!!!
Some my scoff at the fact that A Christmas Carol is summed up in such a quick fashion, but Disney instilled the same messages that are contained in the original black and white features. Just for the copy of Mickey's Christmas Carol I encourage you to pick up this DVD.
The animation is crisp and clarity is amazing. This is one DVD I keep near my DVD player all season long.
