Should have rented it first to make sure, but it is still a charmer. Other than that mistake by another commenter, the movie does feature Donald Duck, with his nephews, and even uncle Scrooge. It's my fault for not researching this better, but, highly disappointed. The narrator then announces new tales of giving and loving, and a book opens to show pop-up elves. Who among us didn't wish we had Christmas everyday when we were kids? Premiering in '99, perhaps this will be a nostalgic treat for those of us who enjoyed animation from days gone by.
Goofy tries to stop it, but he is swung around in the air by the machine. Donald immediately wrecks them until he notices he's destroying the show at Mousy's that Daisy, Huey, Dewey, and Louie were trying to see; Dewey tricks Donald into being heartbroken by saying Donald is not their uncle anymore, and Daisy agrees to leave with the boys. Our 4-year-old has been asking a lot of questions regarding the specifics of how Santa can do his seemingly impossible job. Following this, Mona then reveals to have the same kind of teeth like Goofy and Max; they all laugh and make snow angels on the roof. In voices and in animation, the classic characters look very like they did in the great cartoons of the past. When Daisy and his nephews arrive, Donald becomes annoyed that they want to go out so soon after he returned home, but Daisy drags him out. They both overcome the odds and indulge in the holiday spirit, only to come up empty-handed.
Meanwhile, Pluto becomes homesick to which Santa and the reindeer help Pluto return home. This movie never really gets old for me. A necklace for Minnie's watch is what Mickey wants to buy in a store window and a case for Mickey's harmonica is what Minnie wishes to buy him. You kind of wish Disney would put the most effort into their mascot. I think anyone younger than 10 years old must like it!!! I would rate these a very good 8. Donald becomes increasingly annoyed by the joyous people, and at home, he is annoyed to hear the same Christmas carols on his radio.
The stories are thin and boring. It is a little short, but with the sweetness of the entire movie, the top notch voice talents and the surprisingly good animation, that is so easy to forgive. Daisy Duck and Huey, Dewey, and Louie also appear. But the new Disney has brought this anthology, a trio of stories infused with the spirit of Christmas and beautifully animated. Donald was always my favorite character as a kid, so his misfortune when the nephews inadvertently cause mayhem just being kids often cracked me up. The bond between Goofy and Max is very heartwarming, as Goofy never gives up in his belief in Santa and in his attempt to convince Max.
You will end up just hating everyone on the screen. As Mickey's friends arrive, Pluto completes the Christmas tree decorations and everyone celebrates Pluto's return, even Donald and Daisy Duck, who had just showed up with Huey, Dewey and Louie, Uncle Scrooge, Max, Goofy and Minnie Mouse who is also entranced by the decorations. It has a great story that it divides by in 3 sections: Donald Duck, Goofy and Mickey Mouse. The very first story seen is the best one in my opinion, where Christmas Day is repeated everyday, until it is correct. For kids these are great: short and comical with a nice Christmas theme. Kids won't find this in the least bit entertaining either. That is in fact a Warner Bros.
. After causing trouble at dinnertime, the boys know that they are on the naughty list for sure, so they travel to the to write their names on 's good list. The film concludes with a medley of various carols. The plot, a version of Groundhog Day, does give the Disney Ducks plenty of opportunity to have their fun, then get bored, and eventually realize that everyday same with the occasional slight alteration does get a bit redundant. Overall, this is a very satisfying and heartwarming Christmas special. This is so a highly recommended Christmas movie for that special time of year and for ages to come.
Quite a family Christmas movie, Disney fans should enjoy the animation prior to going computer. I can imagine these as background entertainment during other Christmas activities, but not one to snuggle up by the fire with. When Minnie accidentally slips on a fallen while landing from a stunt blindfolded, Daisy helps Minnie up while feeling sorry for her actions. This came in perfect condition. Mickey working at a Christmas tree sales lot making sure his dastardly boss doesn't trick a poor family into a payment plan for a big tree by finding a nice smaller one they can afford means he loses the little money he had while Minnie wraps gifts like a pro yet doesn't get a bonus as expected, but a fruit log. At Santa's workshop, the trio cause more trouble such as messing the elves' jobs up, but they and the elves help clean up the mess and save Christmas.
Pete gleefully telling Goofy's boy Santa doesn't exist and soon realizing the error of his ways not allowed to enjoy what Red Belly has for those that believe is satisfying. Sometimes even if it doesn't work out, just being together on Christmas is enough. In the end, they learn an important lesson, as does anyone watching this episode. Perhaps the Ducks' Groundhog Day Christmas is the pick of the trio, but all three shorts are well worth watching. The first story is about Huey, Douie, Louie, Daisy, Donald, Scrooge and who appears to be the three boys' other aunt or even mum. Goofy is as lovable as always while his son, Max, is much more appealing as a kid than when he grows up A Goofy Movie. It turns out that after a while, things aren't as jolly and merry as they could be! I think it is one of the better Christmas videos out there, and there are a lot of very good ones, like Enchanted Christmas.
Mickeys and Minies take on The Gift of the Magi was very cute as well! Sure he's clumsy and often falls on his face although he trips during a dinner spent with neighbors and all of the utensils, food, and drink fall right in place on the table so sometimes it all works out for him , but his heart of gold always perseveres in the end. The only time I ever heard about this movie is when I pass by it each time I visit Hollywood Video. Mickey and Minnie are both not very wealthy at all and are having extreme problems buying each other presents. Before they leave, they luck into an opportunity to add their names to the good list; however, they add Uncle Scrooge's name instead, mindful of the fact that he was never written onto the list either. Henry's The Gift, plus two other shorts that are entertaining and beautifully crafted.
