Mickey’s Christ­mas Carol

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Culture -

Dir Burny Mat­tin­son 1983 (US) Who doesn’t love the iconic Dis­ney troupe that brought cheer to our dig­i­tal-less child­hood? The movie starts off a lit­tle grim with the grumpy, mon­ey­ob­sessed Scrooge re­fus­ing to be caught up with hol­i­day’s mer­ri­ment. His over­worked and un­der­paid em­ployee Mickey asks for a half day off on Christ­mas but faces a pay cut due to his re­quest. It isn’t un­til Scrooge en­coun­ters the Ghosts of Christ­mas Past, Present and Yet To Come that he truly de­cides to change his ways and em­brace the Christ­mas spirit in­stead. The breath­less pace of a 25-minute movie left us hang­ing but this will be good for young kids with a shorter at­ten­tion span.
