25 Days of Holiday Classics: Mickey's Christmas Carol: Day 4

Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983) is another version of the Dicken's classic A Christmas Carol. I know I've already posted on the Muppets Christmas Carol, but this one is well done too and it's worth watching both. All of your favorite animated Disney stars are in the film to tell the story, including: Scrooge McDuck plays Ebenezer Scrooge, Mickey plays Bob Cratchit, Goofy plays Jacob Marley, and Donald Duck plays Nephew Fred. Scrooge is visited during the night by his old partner Jacob Marley, as well as by three spirits. They help him to realize how mean he has become and if he doesn't change his ways right now, then he'll end up suffering a terrible afterlife.

I love this movie, it's so heartwarming by the end. I've posted the first part of the movie below. The rest can be found on YouTube.

Really like your blog. This movie is such an unsung classic. I remember when I was a kid, it would get played on TV every holiday season. The would play this movie and then scatter some Disney shorts in with it (Pluto's Christmas Tree, Goofy learning how to ski, and my personal favorite, the Snowball fight between Donald Duck and his nephews). I'm a big time classic/old movie fan. Keep it up

Thank you! It definitely is an unsung classic. I remember that one with Donald and his nephews. It's been forever since I've watched that one! I'm going to have to look it up now!
