The overall DVD is good. But it was a disappointment to find that "The Small One" was edited and of course it is never marked anywhere on the DVD box that it was. For those looking for an original version of this great classic you will need to look elsewhere. Not only did the editors change the words of the song "Clink clink clank clank" (I assume to be more "politically correct")but they completely removed the entire "Small One For Sale" song and segment. I don't understand why people just can't leave things alone the way the movie was originally created.

Two of these stories, Mickey's Christmas Carol, and Pluto's Christmas Tree were featured in the Mickey In Color tin Volume 2. The only new one was Small One, which I had in VHS form for many years, and always thought it was a Disney short classic, so I decided to purchase this set. Unforutnately, the colors on the DVD version are no where near as vivid as my old video copy. There is tons of artifacting through all 3 shorts, but at least the other 2 are very colorful and vibrant.

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 bought this specifically for Small One. Yet I'm fairly disappointed. I would have thought Disney would remaster this classic for the DVD release, but apparently not. The color shifts and you can see little white flecks, and general film noise throughout... but the worst! The funniest best moments of all were the 3 merchants singing their song... I have fond memories of my father dancing around my house singing the "Clink, Clink, Clank Clank Clank" song... Disney has changed the lyrics! The original version went "We never ever fail when we go to make a sale, weeeeee! Simply cheat a little if we must." This DVD, the song has been change to say "...weeeee! Work a little harder if we must!"

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.

"The Small One" has become a Christmas favorite for quite a few years now for people all around the world.

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".

The PC freaks at Disney strike again!!!

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!!!!

I got this for 2 of the movies on it...I didn't honestly care about the other one, but there are three movies on here. One about Pluto chasing Chip and Dale all over the Christmas tree...And then Mickey's Christmas Carol and The Small One. I got it for The Small One and Christmas Carol...in my opinion, two of the best movies Disney ever did. If you like the old Mickey Mouse and the classic Disney movies before Disney turned into the sappy crappy mess it is today and before they reinvented Mickey Mouse into a jerk...then this is a great movie set for you. I love The Small One. It's the perfect Christmas story!
