Review:

Mickey’s Christmas Carol was a movie I use to watch every Christmas, it was recorded on a VHS tape along with several other TV specials. Re-watching it with my daughter was so much fun.

It’s a lot shorter than I remember at only 26 minutes for the actual Christmas Carol. Filling up the rest of the Blu Ray are a few Disney shorts, none of which are anything remarkable.

All in all, the Christmas Carol is the best part, and even though it isn’t as faithful to the source material as The Muppet’s Christmas Carol, it’s a much easier introduction to the classic Dickens’s story.

4/5
