Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983)
Day 8 of my Christmas Movie Marathon and I'm going with a personal favorite: #mickeyschristmascarol
My sons and I have been watching the new DuckTales television show. They did a Christmas episode where #scroogemcduck
spends his Christmas with the 3 ghosts from the Christmas carol special. It was awesome to see the friendships from the perspective of someone who grew up watching the Christmas special my whole life and seeing the connection there in this new show with my kids discovering it. I told them all about the special and they have been bugging me all week to show it to them.
This might be my favorite Christmas movie special. The Christmas Carol is a terrific tale and many movie & television adaptations have been made, and when done right they are fantastic. Almost all of your favorite Disney mainstays are in this version and its done perfectly. From the story and animation, all the way to the music.
I am of the personal belief that this should be viewed yearly like #rudolphtherednosedreindeer #charliebrownchristmas
, and so many others. If you are looking for a fun follow up to this story you should check out the episode "Last Christmas!" from this season of the new #ducktales
It was great sharing this with my kids tonight and watching them enjoy the story as much as I did when I was their ages.
