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!
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.
The DVD also has bonus short cartoons that we had never seen before, but that we didn't like at all when we watched them. I felt they were a waste and just thrown on there to justify the $15 price tag for the 20-25 minute Christmas Carol movie. Overall, the price is worth it for the actual movie and we enjoy watching it now every Christmas, but the shorts were annoying and uninteresting.
