5.0 out of 5 stars EVERYONE: It IS available on DVD... December 17, 2003
By Wender
Format:VHS Tape
Hi! Just saw some of these reviews wishing for this title to be available on DVD. Well - it does exist on DVD, on the compilation DVD "Mickey's Magical Christmas - Snowed in at the House of Mouse (1983)" - which is available here at Amazon. Only flaw - and a big one in my opinion - is the intro which has been cut from the VHS version. It starts right into the movie, with the panning down into the city, and the only bit of the wonderful intro song is a short verse at the end. Maybe most people won't mind, but having seen the VHS every christmas for several years, it's a shame really. But the entire movie is there unedited. I hope the whole thing with the intro and all is on the next "Walt Disney Treasures - Mickey Mouse in Living Color Part 2" available next year...

5.0 out of 5 stars Oh, what a merry christmas film! October 21, 2005
Format:VHS Tape
This 1983 Disney adaptation of Dickens's "A Christmas Carol" has animals playing the parts of characters. However, it doesn't pander down to its audiences. This makes it a family film which the whole family can enjoy.

Ebenezer Scrooge (Scrooge McDuck) is a miserable and greedy old miser. His sole employee Bob Crachit (Mickey Mouse) has a large workload but receives meager sums. Scrooge expects Bob's family to do his laundry for him. Bob was even expected to work on Christmas Day if he did not want to be docked pay.

Scrooge continues his assaults on people until he receives a visit from the ghost of his partner Jacob Marley (Goofy). He was like Scrooge while alive and now has to do penance for that behavior. Three spirits visit Scrooge to offer him the all-critical one last chance.

The Ghost of Christmas Future (Pete----a little-used Disney character) is by far the scariest of the apparitions. After seeing that Tiny Tim Crachit (Morty Fieldmouse) will die in the future present, Scrooge is then pushed into his own coffin by this spirit.

He wakes up in a panic on Christmas morning, tangled in his bed sheets. The reformed Scrooge showers the Crachit family with presents and elevates Bob to partner of the counting house. This very big promotion will enable Tiny Tim to receive the very best medical care then available and Scrooge himself becomes an uncle to the kids.

I love the animation, but I also love the music to this film. I really do get a warm feeling inside me whenever I hear "Mickey's Christmas Carol" being played. It captures the sentiment of this film and the holiday season in general.

I'm concerned that this fine film is bundled into a compilation DVD series as opposed to having its own release. It certainly deserves a single release.

4.0 out of 5 stars Disney does "A Christmas Carol" as an animated short November 19, 2003
Format:VHS Tape
The only real complaint about "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is that it only runs 25 minutes, which means the story gets a bit rushed. The rest, such as the idea that Goofy should play Marley, is just quibbling (Goofy has the height to make it work). On the plus side of the ledger is the on-point casting of Uncle Scrooge McDuck as Ebenezer, Mickey Mouse as Bob Crachit, and Jiminy Cricket as the Ghost of Christmas Past. Historically "Mickey's Christmas Carol" was important for Disney because it was the first animated Mickey Mouse short in thirty years. Since these are the Disney characters inhabiting the familiar roles from "A Christmas Carol" by Charles Dickens, you end up with a winning combination of goofy humor and warm sentiments. However, you cannot help but thinking that given the creativity of Disney, even in those dark days six years before "The Little Mermaid" brought back the magic, this could have been a pretty good feature length animated film. Compared to other Disney animated shorts, "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is a five. But compared to other versions of "A Christmas Carol," this one is just short of the top tier. Worth having? Absolutely. But just make sure it is not the first version of this Christmas classic that the small fry see. They should appreciate the original holiday lesson taught by Dickens before they enjoy this more comic version.

5.0 out of 5 stars Animation That Walt Disney Would Have Been Proud Of December 18, 2002
Format:VHS Tape
Despite being released in 1983 this lovely little animated Christmas story has the real mark of the late great Walt Disney on it. It has a slightly old fashioned look about it and could have easily been the work of the great master himself. The "old world", feel about it is just right and harks back to all the outstanding work done at the Disney Studios during its golden age under Walt Disney.

"Mickey's Christmas Carol" tells pure and simple the story of Charles Dickens immortal tale "A Christmas Carol" with all the well known Disney characters being superbly cast in the main roles of the story. Despite there being countless versions of this classic story this adaption is excellent and ideal family entertainment. Scrooge McDuck, always one of my favourite Disney characters takes centre stage here as , you guessed it Ebenezer Scrooge. As befitting to Scrooge his character starts out as mean, uncaring, and cold before the necessary reformation at the conclusion. His voice is provided by Disney veteran Alan Young. Mickey Mouse plays the sympathetic role of the down trodden Bob Cratchit and Goofy makes a most memorable, accident prone Jacob Marley, Scrooge's former coworker. Playing the three spirits who make the visit to Scrooge on Christmas Eve are Willie the Giant, Jiminy Cricket and Pete.

The beautiful animation for the Christmas settings is unsurpassed with the snow covered town, gaslighted streets, Christmas Decorations and Victorian costumes of the characters and it just seems that the well known personalities of the various animated characters match perfectly with their Dicken's counterparts. I'm frankly surprised that this wonderful story had never been adapted by Walt Disney before, what with all the potential that it holds.
