Editorial Reviews

Ring in the holidays with a new 30th Anniversary Special Edition of Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Disney’s timeless tale sparkles like never before on Blu-ray and Digital Copy, with fully-restored classic holiday shorts, plus all-new bonus features.

Make the season merry as Mickey, Goofy, Donald and all their pals star in a heartwarming retelling of Dickens’ unforgettable holiday tale. Ebenezer Scrooge (Scrooge McDuck) is far too greedy to understand that Christmas is a time for kindness and generosity. But with the guidance of some wise ghosts (Goofy and Jiminy Cricket) and a bunch of newfound friends, Scrooge learns to embrace the spirit of the season. Share this wonderful holiday treat with the whole family.

4.0 out of 5 stars Worth it for the shorts November 5, 2013
By DDRfan
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I know a lot of people here have complained about the digital restoration, but if you're like me and you only have your old VHS copy of the '80s it will look great to you. The picture is really clear but there are a few spots where they brightened it up so much that it looks a little odd depending on how good your TV screen is. Like I said, compared to my ancient old tape where the picture was so dark and dirty it looks nice and clean, but if you already have one of the previous DVD releases then you can skip this one.

However, what makes this blu ray for me are the shorts included, whose restoration look very good. It's very hard to find these shorts outside of trying to track down the out of print Disney Treasures or Classic Cartoon Favorites DVDs. There is also a Disney Christmas Carol sing-along included in the features.
The shorts are:
Yodelberg (all-new Minnie and Mickey)
The Hockey Champ (Donald and his nephews)
Pluto's Christmas Tree (Pluto and Chip & Dale)
The Art of Skiing (Goofy)
Corn Chips (Donald and Chip & Dale)

So if you're buying this for the first time on disc format then it's worth your money, but if you already have it on DVD then you can skip it if you don't care about the shorts. The digital restoration isn't as good as the Diamond Edition series, as you would expect, but it's clean and bright, and your kids will love being introduced to this classic!

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Upgrade, but a Bit Disappointing November 5, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I have an 80" HDTV, so older/unrestored films/DVDs really show their age. Before playing this new blu-ray of Mickey's Christmas Carol, I watched a bit of the same short film on the Walt Disney Treasures: Mickey Mouse in Living Color Vol. 2 DVD, since that's shown in anamorphic widescreen. I am happy to say that the Blu-ray is indeed an obvious upgrade in video quality. I did notice some shots were a bit soft and some scenes did look overly cropped, as one of the top reviews here mentioned, but for the most part, I'm happy with the upgraded video quality and glad I own this on Blu-ray.

One major disappointment - aside from the price: this is easily a $14.99 Blu-ray - although not really that surprising, was the omission of the original making-of documentary that is also available on the same Walt Disney Treasures DVD mentioned above. Was it too much for them to restore that special in HD?

The other shorts are fine, especially the classic Pluto's Christmas Tree, which is also now in HD. But I REALLY wish Disney would do on Blu-ray what they did on VHS back in the 80s and put out a full "Walt Disney Christmas" with all the Christmas short films on one collection.

1.0 out of 5 stars "Restoration" mess October 28, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
This movie, like Sword in the Stone and to a lesser extent, other Disney Classics, has been damaged heavily from extremely high use of DNR (Digital Noise Manipulation). In an effort to make it look modern and clean, Disney has rushed the restoration and turned the film into a soft mess.

Needless to say that Disney has once again opted to release it in 16x9 only (1,78:1), cutting a big portion of the top and the bottom of the frame. The framing is even tighter than the DVD's.

The audio is Dolby Digital 2.0.

It goes into detail concerning the transfer's shortcomings and problems.

NOT RECOMMENDED (terrible picture -blurred and cropped, lossy audio, high price)

If, like me, you love this movie to bits and want to add it to your collection, I advise you to contact Disney customer service and explain why you aren't buying this Blu-ray. Otherwise they'll just claim that customers don't like it enough.

4.0 out of 5 stars classic December 3, 2013
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
I found it quite good and I enjoyed the extras. But the price seemed too steep for a 20 min cartoon. But I got it for my kids.

2.0 out of 5 stars They cropped it! Terrible! November 20, 2013
Format:Blu-ray
They cropped it! I'm really disappointed to say that they trimmed the top and bottom of the picture to fit the widescreen format. I own the slightly older Walt Disney Animation Collection: Classic Short Films DVD with this same movie on it, and I like that one much better because it is still 4:3. I think the restoration job looks pretty good on a big TV, but I know that some of the older, hard-core collectors may say otherwise. I'd say don't get rid of your old DVD/VHS copies of you still plan to upgrade to the Blu-Ray. Watch them side by side and you'll see how much they cropped it. I don't understand why they couldn't have kept it in 4:3! Otherwise, I'd still recommend getting it because the additional shorts are different from the older DVDs...It's kinda nice to have those. The Blu-Ray includes: Yodelburg, The Hockey Champ, Pluto's Christmas Tree, The Art of Skiing, and Corn Chips. For reference, my older DVD copy includes Pluto's Christmas Tree, The Small One, and Santa's Workshop. So yeah, if you have your old DVD, just keep it. If you want the Blu-Ray for the different shorts, go for it. But it's not worth it to buy if you're looking for an upgrade of Mickey's Christmas Carol, because they cropped the thing, and that's just lame!

Mickey's Christmas Carol is just as I remembered it. However, I was disappointed some of the extra winter shorts were not the same ones I recall airing every year on tv.
