Opened: December 16, 1983
Directed by: Burny Mattinson
Greedy Ebenezer Scrooge (Alan Young as Scrooge McDuck) doesn’t like anything to do with Christmas and takes it out on his poor employee Bob Cratchit (Wayne Allwine as Mickey Mouse). On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by three ghosts that show him what the world looks like and his place in it.
With the film being under 30 minutes, parts from the original story are left out and additional comedic moments are added in to keep kids entertained. It moves fast, so you’re always involved with the story.
Final say: Classic retelling. ★★★★☆
