Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my ponderings. Hope you have a nice stay!

Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983)

Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983)

Clocking in at 25 minutes this Disney take on A Christmas Carol is short and sweet using familiar characters and the classic Disney animated art style. Even with this short run time the opening credits take a whopping 2 minutes, while that may not seem long it takes the run time down even more so they have even less time to cram everything in. I enjoyed this take on a Christmas classic and was easy to watch I felt the pacing was off and that the story was all a bit rushed to get it all to fit into 25 minutes, I think if they extended it by 10 or 20 minutes the film would of been a lot more enjoyable. If you enjoy the classic Disney characters you are bound to enjoy this take on A Christmas Carol which makes full use of Disney’s roster of Characters and this film is perfect for the little ones who are obsessed with Disney to get to watch A Christmas Carol since this version is simple and easy to understand. While I enjoyed watching the film and it was never a chore to watch I probably wont watch it many more times just because there are, in my opinion, much better versions of this Christmas tale that entertain me far me. There is nothing wrong with Disney’s telling of this story I much prefer The Muppets version which incidentally has a longer run time so that version doesn’t feel rushed at all. Now time for the scores…

Quality 5/10
