Mickey's Christmas Carol 30th Anniversary Blu-ray Review

A Christmas Carol is one of the most well known stories ever told, and I’ve seen a number of versions of it as well as films inspired by the story. I wasn’t sure that I had actually seen Mickey’s Christmas Carol, though! Once I started watching it, certain scenes seemed familiar to me.

This twenty-six minute long short film captures all of the themes and lessons in the Dickens classic, and would be a perfect introduction to this wonderful holiday story for young children—and those young at heart.

In addition to Mickey’s Christmas Carol, the following Christmas, snow, and winter-themed Disney shorts are also on this Blu-ray.

Yodelberg A brand new Mickey short done in 2D. Mickey is attempting to visit Minnie, who lives atop a mountain, but an impending avalanche and other obstacles could stop him in his tracks.

The Hockey Champ A 1939 Donald Duck short in which Donald shows off his graceful skills on skates. His nephews join him out on the pond in their skating gear, and Donald takes on all three of them himself in a hockey match.

Pluto’s Christmas Tree A 1952 Mickey short in which Mickey and Pluto pick out their Christmas tree. Chip n’ Dale are in the tree that Mickey chops down and they continue teasing him once Mickey brings the tree inside.

The Art of Skiing A 1941 Goofy short in which Goofy learns how to ski and demonstrates the different techniques.

Corn Nuts A Donald Duck short in which Chip n’ Dale steal Donald Duck’s corn nuts and he goes after them, trying to get them back.
