After everyone is snowed in at the House of Mouse, Mickey suggests they throw their own Christmas party. Everyone is happy, except for Donald who just isn't in to the Christmas spirit. So Mickey shows a series of cartoons that show just what Christmas is all about. It features a star studded cast of Disney characters from everyone's favorite animated Disney movies.Written by

The Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983) portion of the movie has been edited slightly. -The opening credits skipped over, though it was displayed at the movie's end credits. -The closing reprise of "Oh, What a Merry Christmas Day" is shortened. -The iris-out is added after the last shot dissolves into a illustration (as part of the "Walt Disney Productions" end card).

In "The Nutcracker" story, it is clearly stated and mentioned that the character Minnie Mouse was playing was named Maria, and Mickey played the Nutcracker. So why when it cut to the stockings did the stockings read; Mickey, Minnie, and Pluto? See more »

This is a great holiday movie with a touching lesson. (that may be a bit overused in holiday movies. Christmas is all about friends and family)
I have to admit, the whole reused segments and in between animation is kind of boring, but they are classic tales from Disney and the in betweeners are fun to watch! It's not everyday you watch movies with loveable characters side-by-side. I think it's great that the other characters are able to chat with each other and take a break from their movie lives. It's just like actors and actresses getting together at a club and watching other performances for a change.
The classic tales retold with that Disney magic is great and the classic features mix well with the newly animated (though not the best animation) shorts.But...
What are you other people talking about??? You obviously haven't seen the Saturday morning show, HOUSE OF MOUSE, which the movie is based on!!!! Watch the show and you'll understand why all the characters are there and why cartoon shorts are shown! Mickey and Donald run a CARTOON club! Of course there will be cartoons shown!
With that said...this was okay for a Disney movie. It wasn't the Disney company's best holiday movie(Once upon a Christmas was much better!!), but they seem to be running out of material. I mean- Cinderella II, Hunchback II, Lady and the Tramp II, etc., coming soon- Dumbo II, Mulan II, 101 Dalmations II: Patch's adventuresomething like that], Tarzan and Jane...okay, it's weird I know all this stuff...Disney is running low on their magic.
Anyway, to sum it up...Magical Christmas was great and shouldn't be shunned so much by people who probably think Anastasia was Disney movie(believe me, most people think it is)
