Mickey's Carol seems to "run fast" as it's timing is only 28 minutes. However, no scenes seem to be cut, unlike the recent airing on network and cable. Note: Film can be sped up to 26 FPS and beyond. (Watch the sit-coms on TVLand and notice how "high" everyone's voices are!) A very good value for $10! Four cartoons for the price of one. Running time: about 80 minutes.
This is a very good creative adaptation of the Dickens story. Featuring the voice talents of Alan Young, Wayne Allwine and Hal Smith, among others, this film hearkens to the golden age of the 1930's for animated short film.
Necessarily shortening and simplifying Dickens' novel and its language, it nevertheless retains a glimmering intelligence and understated sophistication. Additionally, the soundtrack is superb, especially the opening number "Oh, What A Merry Christmas Day." The roles of Dickens' ghosts are fulfilled by Disney characters, and for the most part I cannot complain. Even Goofy as Jacob Marley fits because the creative staff retain the basic original plotline which Dickens created for his character. This treatment also pleasantly undercuts the harder edge of the Marley character by injecting skillful humor into key moments. The only character choice for a ghost I did not like at all was Willie the Giant from "Mickey and the Beanstalk." That character is just too overbearing and lacking in the stateliness I've associated with The Ghost of Christmas Present for all of my life. A very abbreviated appearance by The Ghost of Christmas Yet To Come, here called The Ghost of Christmas Future, is fittingly bleak and may provide the biggest scare of the movie for very young children. That moment of the film is so brief, though, that after a hiccup, it's over.
Featuring fairly early animation by the great Glen Keane and even John Lasseter, the current head of Pixar, "Mickey's Christmas Carol" is a classic animated short film of Dickens' classic novel and stands the test of time beautifully.
