I gotta get on a bus to go home for Christmas so I'll spare you the pithy quips and just say that as straightforward and brief as this is it may one of the better Christmas Carol adaptations we've covered yet. Cameos abound from Disney characters both famous and obscure so if you're the sort who loves frame-by-framing your media you'll have fun picking the faces out of the crowd. All that's left to say is Merry Christmas to all our listeners wherever you may and have a safe & pleasant holiday season. Til next year!
