The tape also had a few extra Disney holiday cartoons shown before
the "Christmas Carol" episode (such as Pluto chasing the Chipmunks living
in their Christmas tree, and Donald battles his nephews in an over the
top snowball war). It was fun to watch - even in July!
When I first saw this short, I was whisked away into the story and
imagination of Disney (as usual) and I fell in love with it ever since.
I was most especially touched by the song 'Oh, What a Merry Christmas
Day.' I finally read the lyrics here and I love it now that I know what
it is the singers were saying. The music really lifted my spirits.
My favorite parts of the short is when Scrooge goes up the stairs
and looks back when he feels he is being followed. I also like (and
laugh) every time Jiminy Cricket whisks Scrooge over London and Scrooge
shouts "Spirit look out!" I get a kick out of the line "What's wrong
Scrooge? I thought you enjoyed looking down on the world." I was sort
of spooked by Pete's character and Scrooge's near death experience when
he is thrown into the casket.
I have the story on a record player/record and I always listened
to it when I gave the video a break. You could say that I love this
story so much!
