I got this movie for Christmas and thought that it was one of the best Disney movies I've seen and would recommend it to anyone who's a big Disney movie fan.

I think the animation is wonderful, and wish there were more Mickey movies just like this one.

This is a movie you could watch every day for a month, and not fry your brain.

I know, because I had to. My son was obsessed.

The five shorts comprising "Twice Upon A Christmas" are all delightful, and perfect family viewing.

First I must say that the digital re-creation of our favorite animated characters has been done to perfection. Eye-popping crystalline perfection.

The Minnie-Daisy ice skating duel features those dancing hippos and crocs from Fantasia, and beautiful digital effects and designs.

Huey, Dewey and Louie's journey to the North Pole has a classic caper feel to it; it's fast and funny. When one of the little guys drifts a little too close to a snoring Santa's breath, he initially winces. Then he smiles and says, "Hm! Peppermint! With a hint of mocha!" It's cute. My wife and I laugh, and my 2.5 year old wonders why.

Goofy and his son Max has some nice musical numbers in it. Again, seeing these characters in their three-dimensional glory is a sheer delight. I liked the moral of this piece, not quite sweet enough to give you cavities, but close.

Donald's discovery of Christmas spirit is also a heart-warmer, and here the animators show off their magic and skill in giving innumerable facial expressions to our favorite hysteric.

Mickey's Christmas party, with Pluto going off to be a reindeer is a fine ending to a great set of cartoons. Paying attention to the dialogue pays off as well; the creators have inserted lots of sly asides for us older folks.

Kids will be entranced...literally. Adults will totally enjoy this. It reminded me of the way I felt when I watched those stop-motion Rankin-Bass classics as a kid.

These really could be the next generation of Christmas Classics!

After getting this DVD from the library last year, I knew that my son was a big fan of Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas. In fact, so was my husband. He's an artist, and very critical of shoddy animation. However, with this DVD, he often comments on the well-done, vibrant images of computer animation. (If you're a parent of a child, you probably already know how shoddy some of the CGI can be in kid videos! Happily, this is not rendered poory like some movies.) In fact, I was amazed at how Mickey's sweater looked so real, as well as the snow-covered trees, holiday lights and Christmas trees, Minnie and Daisy's gossamer skating outfits, and so on.

An open "Storybook" presents each tale, and we are whisked away into five magical stories showing true-to-life situations involving relationships. (And you KNOW how the whole family/relationship thing can get during holidays... *wince*).

Clever writing abounds, as well as numerous sight-gags. My son and I think it's hilarious when Huey, Dewey and Louie burp to a Christmas song--and when Daisy implores Donald to "say something!", he burps in response.

For those who think this DVD is mean spirited and violent, I have to say it seems like I was watching an entirely different movie than they apparently were... I mean, the classic Huey, Dewey and Louie animated shorts AND comics always presented their mischief. In fact, in the original theatrical shorts, the nephews were sent to live with Donald because their father was in the hospital! Why? Because the boys sent him there by putting firecrackers under his chair! (So I hardly think that ol' Walt is rolling in his grave. Lighten up, people--this is the guy that gave us Fantasia!

My only disappointment with this DVD was that it wasn't longer. The five shorts on this DVD were great, especially the one with Minnie Mouse and Daisy Duck as dueling ice princesses and the story of Pluto's adventure's at the North Pole hanging out with Santa's reindeer. I thought this last story could've been a feature length tale in itself.

While I agree with many that seeing the characters in full-fledged 3D animation, I don't think this new rendering of these wonderful characters could have been done any better. No, it's not animation of the quality in the top budget motion picture releases, but it's nonetheless extremely well done.

If you love Christmas and you love Mickey and the gang, you and your family will love this DVD.

Having been a fan of Disney animation all my life (let's say 37 out of a possible 42 years at least), including personal experience with animation, I'd like to share one tangible benefit of the new generation of CGI graphics. I purchased the DVD around two weeks before taking my family to WDW. I have a two-year old daughter, who we call "Princess" as she certainly relates to the Disney princesses, whether they are the classics like Cinderella and Snow White, or her more contemporary friends, Belle and Ariel. I thought it would be wise to introduce Mickey and all his friends before visiting his Florida home, so we gathered to watch this newest Christmas feature. To say the least, my daughter was captivated by the animation, and I was dually impressed as well. What really struck me however, was her reaction while at Disney World. I believe the realism of the 3-D graphics made it a whole lot easier for her to relate to the actual characters that we later met in the various parks. As great as the Disney classics have always been, at the young age of only two, the translation into real time does not always happen. Twice Upon A Christmas leaves no doubt about the 3-D realism.

I don't need to dwell on the story lines any further than what has been discussed by others - they are simply creative entertainment that can be enjoyed by all. I did appreciate some adult oriented lines throughout the different stories, especially from Huey, Duey and Louie in their features, as well as Daisey and Minnie's verbal exchange in the middle of their skating battle. The reindeer are pretty entertaining in Dog-gone Christmas - definitely a departure from the claymation classics of old.
