    Good but not great

    Mickey's Christmas Carol is definitely a classic! Two things to note if you're thinking of picking this up for the holidays. I bought the original release on DVD back in 2005 and the title of that release is Walt Disney's volume 9 of Classic holiday stories, this DVD version of Mickey's Christmas Carol looks hand drawn and grainy but that's the version we all grew up watching... however the bluray version is subtle but noticeably cleaned up and Polished, personally I think that was a big mistake on Disney's part. The other thing to note is that on the DVD version you also get two other cartoon classic's... Pluto's Christmas Tree with Mickey Mouse, Pluto and Chip & Dale and another favorite is The Small One which is about a young boy and his donkey. I was hoping the Blu-ray version was identical to the DVD but it's not. They have substituted Pluto's Christmas Tree and The Small One for other Disney episode's and in my opinion they don't measure up as good replacements.

    A Christmas classic

    This is one of the best Christmas movies of all-time. Mickey and company star in one of the most faithful and one of the finest screen treatments charles Dickens' classic tale of redemption has ever recieved. At turns, Mickey's Christmas Carol is fun and light-hearted, at others dramatic and heart-rending. The animation is phnomenal, it still looks great by today's standards. The movie also got a superb HD remaster. The colors are bright and sharply defined and the backgrounds look just like a village from Dickens' time. Nearly every Disney character you can think of has an appearance in Mickey's Christmas Carol, from Scrooge Mac Duck as Ebenezer Scrooge and Mickey Mouse as Bob Cratchitt, to Mr. TOad as Fezziwig. A selection of classic Disney shorts is included. Pluto's Christmas tree remains one of the best Christmas short films ever made. You also get the all-new Yodelburg short. This Blu-Ray does not have 'The Small One', hopefully that fantasic short film will be included in a future Christmas Blu-Ray. A timeless classic is reborn on Blu-Ray. A great Christmas present for young and old.

    This is one Disney Classic Revived after 30 Years and given a Blue Ray Make Over that is like seeing the movie in a whole new light . It is like seeing a new movie made today and not seeing an old movie you can tell made long ago. This is a Holiday treat at a BestBuy Price. And don't Forget to pick up the Super Nintendo Mini Classic on the way out at Checkout another Holiday Classic that looks like Blue ray also. Grab em while you can because they will dissappear quick too.

    This is a great Christmas classic. Two things you should be aware of: 1) Mickey's Christmas Carol is only about a half an hour long; there are also a few other short cartoons included on the disc that take up the rest of the time reported in the item description. 2) The digital copy that comes with this movie redeems in HD (bluray quality) rather than SD (dvd quality), at least at the time I redeemed it.

    I used to watch Mickey's Christmas Carol every year when it would come on around Christmas time when I was a kid. The actual story is very well delivered, and I always enjoyed the handful of Christmas-esque cartoons that played before the title piece. A few of these are actually included on the blu-ray, though I will say that I'm disappointed that 'Donald's Snow Fight' wasn't included. Either way, it's a great investment if you loved this release growing up as I did.

    Quality and Nostalgia

    Even after childhood, this is my favorite retelling of A Christmas Carol. The HD quality of the animation was a little too ambitious at times, but easily ignored and forgotten. I love that released some of my favorite shorts from when I was a kid as well. My nephews were very pleased with the movie and shorts as well (ages 5 & 9). They have even asked to rewatch them a couple of times. Must buy.

    Mickey's Christmas Carol is a great condensed story of Charles Dickens "A Christmas Carol" which is very popular with all ages in our family. We have the Disney VHS Tape where the picture quality was OK, but the soundtrack poor. It is fantastic to see much better picture and sound quality in the Blu-Ray version.
