Merry Christmas and Happy 30th Anniversary to Mickey's Christmas Carol!
on December 1, 2013
First off, it's one of my favorite animated Disney short films that I grew up with. Plus, this year is when Mickey's Christmas Carol turned 30 this year. Yippee! And of course, the main character, Scrooge McDuck as Ebenezer Scrooge (voiced by Alan Young).
Now, there are 4 cartoons in this collection; Mickey's Christmas Carol, Small One, Pluto's Christmas Tree, and Santa's Workshop.
All right, Mickey's Christmas Carol: As you see, it's based on Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, and there are familiar faces throughout the movie. Mickey Mouse as Bob Crachit (voiced by Wayne Allwine), Donald Duck as Fred Scrooge (voiced by the late Clarence Nash), and I don't remember the voices of the rest of other characters, but I can call them out. Ratty and Moley as Collectors for the Poor from The Wind in the Willows, Goofy as Jacob Marley, Jiminy Cricket from Pinocchio as Ghost of Christmas Past, Daisy Duck as Isabella, Willie the Giant from Mickey and the Beanstalk as Ghost of Christmas Present, Minnie Mouse and family as Mrs. Crachit and children (incl. Tiny Tim), and Pete as Ghost of the Future (scary!).
Next, Small One: Basically, Small One was taken place before the Nativity story. You'll understand that in the ending.
And finally, two more cartoons: Pluto's Christmas Tree is when Mickey gets a tree in the beginning. Later on, Chip & Dale were inside of the Christmas tree. Pluto makes fail attempts to get them. In the end, Mickey found out why Pluto was acting weird. Of course, one of the chipmunks placed the Do Not Open 'til Christmas sticker on Pluto's mouth, just to stop his singing. For Santa's Workshop, it's one of those Silly Symphony. You can guess what it's about...Santa Claus and his little helpers are preparing for Christmas celebration.
If you love the Disney Classics collection, this is a must-see short films.
Merry Christmas 2013!
