As a child, I can easily remember my prized possession was a Walt Disney book that my father purchased for me and it featured the chronology of the early classic Walt Disney animated shorts. Some of these shorts were shown on the Disney Channel when I was younger but suffice to say, with all the new animation, a lot of these classics have probably been forgotten or have been released on VHS video.

Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment are now releasing a few of these shorts on DVD for the first time (some have appeared on past Disney DVD releases). Now the seventh volume of the Walt Disney Animation Collection will be released and the theme for this volume is Christmas.

In past volumes, we saw many of the Silly Symphony shorts from the 1929-1939 featured in each volume but this time around, we have a volume featuring animation shorts released in the 80's. Also, the following shorts are much longer with most shorts in the past being around under 10 minutes, in this volume, the first two "Mickey's Christmas Carol" and "The Small One" are over 20 minutes long.

The seventh volume "Mickey's Christmas Carol" includes four shorts. Included are:

1. Mickey's Christmas Carol - (25:47) This popular Disney animated cartoon is from 1983 and has been featured on several DVD's in the past. In an animated retelling of the Charles Dickens masterpiece, Scrooge McDuck plays Ebenezer Scrooge who is tight with money and puts money above everything. Even on Christmas Eve, his poor employee Bob Cratchit (Mickey Mouse) is docked pay for Christmas vacation. But its when the Ghosts of Christmas past pay a visit to Ebenezer and show him that he should have compassion for people.

After watching the disgustingly boring 2009 3D adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic A Christmas Carol I remembered how much I loved this Disney version and decided I had to watch it again. I'm so glad I did! 25 minutes is the perfect length for the story, and nothing could be more charming than having it star all of our favorite Disney characters! This is the only version you'll ever need of the story.

Additionally I was excited about this DVD because I remembered loving "Pluto's Christmas Tree" and "The Small One". They were even better than I remembered! Pluto finds himself irked when Chip and Dale end up in the Christmas tree Mickey just cut down and The Small One is a very enchanting story about a boy who must sell his beloved donkey because he's getting too old to do chores. I must admit I cried at the end!

"Santa's Workshop" I didn't remember, but it was a fun animated journey through Santa's preparations for the big night.

Overall this is an AMAZING collection of short film. The only thing that bothered me was how cheap the main menu was. It had to have been put together on the Paint program, because it looks terrible. I'm sure this might have been done on purpose to give the deluxe edition they'll release in 10 years a better look, but it was still sad. Nonetheless I'll be watching these movies every Christmas, multiple times no doubt!

A Christmas Story, It's a Wonderful Life, Miracle on 34th Street, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation, Home Alone, Home Alone 2: Lost in New York, Elf, A Charlie Brown Christmas, A Garfield Christmas, How the Grinch Stole Christmas, Scrooge, Scrooged, Die Hard . . . the list is endless. There are dozens and dozens of films and TV specials that deal with the holidays. Some of good, others are just downright horrible. A few of them are considered some of the finest (Lampoon and Wonderful Life), while others are just mediocre (Jingle all the Way, The Santa Clause). But no matter what, most of these films and TV specials are always perfect for this time of year. And if you're a Disney fan, then Mickey's Christmas Carol would be the right one for you. This DVD features four films: Mickey's Christmas Carol, The Small One, Santa's Workshop, and Pluto's Christmas Tree. Christmas Carol is a half-hour adaptation of Dickens's classic story. The characters are played by Mickey, Scrooge McDuck, Pete, and more. It's what you would expect from vintage Disney: great animation, sharp writing, and some dark moments that you would NEVER see in today's Disney world. The Small One, also half-and-hour long, is by Don Bluth (of Land Before Time fame), and it tells the story of a young boy who must sell his aging donkey whom he adores very much. It's a very religious story, and some people may want to keep a box of Kleenex handy. Santa's Workshop and Pluto's Christmas Tree are both classic Disney shorts that deserve recognition, but I wish they added Toy Tinkers (starring Chip, Dale, and Donald Duck) on this DVD.

Still, this is something that I can easily recommend to people of all ages. All four films (except maybe Santa's Workshop which looks a bit outdated) are excellent for the holiday season.

This is a very charming collection of short holiday stories from Disney. Though the collection varies fairly widely in tone from one cartoon to the next, all are good and have broad appeal. Mickey's Christmas Carol (26 minutes, 1983) is an amiable re-telling of Dickens' classic that strikes just the right chord for young viewers, avoiding the typically frightening atmosphere that many adaptations maintain (think ghost of Jacob Marley and the grim reaper ghost of Christmas future). The animation is classic Disney and is gorgeous. The Small One (26 minutes, 1978) is a surprisingly sweet and low-key tale about a special diminutive donkey that finds his niche within the nativity story. It features memorable songs and genuine emotional weight that is a nice alternative to the usual madcap flavor of most cartoons. Pluto's Christmas Tree (7 minutes, 1952) is a very straightforward cartoon in the most traditional sense - short, heavy on the physical humor, and good fun. It too is typical old-fashioned Disney, well-animated and lots of charm. Santa's Workshop (7 minutes, 1932) is the slightest of the bunch and while pleasant it isn't particularly memorable. It follows Santa and his helpers as they get ready for Christmas. It is the oldest of the four videos on this collection and shows every bit of its age. If you've seen Steamboat Willie then this will feel familiar, though it is in color.
This is a solid collection of fun Christmas-themed stories that will appeal to kids and families of all ages. My 4 1/2 year old son enjoyed all of the videos despite how diverse they are, and I look forward to enjoying them again and again during Christmas seasons to come.
