Disney knows how to capitalize on their popular products. This disc contains shorts that have already been released on DVD. But all those old releases are out of print. And these four shorts have never been released together before. So if you've missed them, here's a great way to get them.

Of course, short is a subjective term since two of them are around 25 minutes each. Up first is "Mickey's Christmas Carol." In this classic take on the Dickens' tale, the parts are played by Mickey and his pals. Mickey takes on Bob Cratchit, leaving the Scrooge role to Scrooge McDuck. As much as I love some of the straight adaptations of the classic, I love this one, too. Given the time constraints, they cut a lot out, but it is still entertaining.

The other longer piece is "The Small One." This short finds a boy attempting to find a loving home for his favorite donkey. He wanders all over the ancient village until a man needs asks him for the animal to carry his pregnant wife on a journey. The spiritual overtones are a little surprising, but I find the short overall a little long. Cutting out a few minutes would have made it better over all.

In the true shorts category, we've got "Pluto's Christmas Tree," a piece that finds Pluto trying to rid the house of Chip 'n' Dale who have stowed away in Mickey's Christmas tree. It's rather funny. And they really reached into the vault for 1932's Santa's Workshop. This one is definitely dated, and one of the jokes would be racist today. But the majority of the cartoon is still clever.

Even with one of the offerings being a little weak, the rest of the disc is very strong. If you don't already have these shorts, you might want to consider getting this release while you still can.

This is my favorite Christmas film, it is really short, only 25 mins but still gives me that Christmassy feeling even at 31 years old! I loved watching this as a child but only had it on VHS and was so excited to see it for a great price on DVD, it comes with lots of other Disney Christmas films that play right after the Christmas Carol. My 2 and a half and 1 and a half year old children are glued to the screen when this is on, definately getting value for money, this will be played over and over again each year.

Good family entertainment telling a classic story in true Disney style. Children will love it and so will the parents it captivates the veiwer from start to finish. An added bonus is the short films just long enough to hold even the smallest of childrens attention. This is an NTSC Dvd so ensure you have the equipment to play it. It is not available in the UK High Street shops, I have looked for this item for ages so don't bother wasting your time, buy it here. A must have for every family collection.

I love disney and it was quite hard to find the disney christmas carol rather than the muppets version. Definitely the better of the two. Although I need an American DVD player to play it on.

This is a nostalgic memory for my (now grown up?) children. It is still a good dvd to watch for Christmas whatever age you are. The old ones are nearly always the best!!

This collection doesn't seem to be available in the shops and is by far the best Disney compilation of Christmas stories
