The opening song gets me every time.
Scrooge McDuck in his element.
Warnings from Marley.
The Ghost of Christmas Past - appropriately, Jiminy Cricket, a.k.a, Conscience.
The Ghost of Christmas Present - more lighthearted, but also pretty snarky.
This part always scared me as a kid.
He can't go out in his pajamas! Ah, the cane. That's better.
Happily ever after.
Originally released in 1983, this movie was a staple of my childhood. Between my love of reading and my fascination with this 26 minute movie, my parents knew giving me this book would be a perfect Christmas gift. (Which is was; I read this book to death.)
This little movie is one of my absolute holiday favorites. It's wonderful for kids and adults seem to like it, too. An excellent choice to sit down and watch with a bowl of popcorn after a crazy day, or something nice and classic to have on for the kids or in the background while making dinner. I really love this movie. I hope you will enjoy it, too.
