    This was a fun read loosely based on Charles Dickens’s “A Christmas Carol”.

    NOTE: This isn't based on the Disney half-hour special. Well this is similar to the cartoon. I liked this mostly. It's a little too quick, but keeps the message. Not a fan not everyone gets a duck counterpart and there NO Tiny Tim. I'm not sure why his character was cut out from this? NOTE: This isn't based on the Disney half-hour special.

    It may not be the Christmas season but I can never not read a Christmas carol, it is my favorite. This version was no exception, a few slight changes but nothing that too away from the story.

    Disney A Christmas Carol pales in comparison to Disney’s previous adaptations of Charles Dickens holiday classic. Basically it’s a generic knockoff of Mickey’s Christmas Carol that retains Uncle Scrooge and Donald but recasts all the rest of the characters. And despite the increased length, it somehow manages to be less faithful to Dickens’ original text; dumbing down the characters (particularly Scrooge) and lightening some of the darker parts of the novel. Also, the artwork is rather bland, fe Disney A Christmas Carol pales in comparison to Disney’s previous adaptations of Charles Dickens holiday classic.

Still, for young readers Disney A Christmas Carol works well-enough and captures the essence of Dickens’ tale (but Disney can do better).

    3.5 I thought this was going to be a lame adaptation of the cartoon (which I love) but it’s its own adaptation of Dickens’ story set in the world of the Scrooge McDuck comics and it’s surprisingly well done.

    One of my favorite of all-time holiday films to watch is Mickey's Christmas Carol! It stars Uncle Scrooge as Ebeneezer Scrooge; the miser who hates Christmas and all who love the holiday. The film started an obsession for me as I feel in love with ducks from like age 8 until 10 or so. I loved real ducks. Fake ducks. Ducktales! All of it. When I got to meet some Disney animators, the character I asked them to sketch for me was Uncle Scrooge! I loved ducks that much- until one bit me!

When I got to meet some Disney animators, the character I asked them to sketch for me was Uncle Scrooge! I loved ducks that much- until one bit me! (But that a story for another day...) A couple of months ago, this book dropped. Why it came out in October is beyond me. But when it debuted in stores, I immediately asked for it publicly on social media. And my loving wife, knowing of what a fan of holiday comics I am, got this graphic novel for me for my birthday. Sure, I had to wait a week to read it. But it was worth the wait. Other than Donald, who reprises his role as Scrooge's nephew, no other established Disney characters are in this book. Bob Cratchit is played by a beagle looking fellow. Not Mickey. Daisy might be playing Donald's wife. But the character looks too generic to tell. The only other Disney character I might have seen in this graphic novel is the Mickey Mouse comic villain, the Phantom Blot starring as the Ghost of Christmas Future. But again, it's too vague looking of a character to know for sure. While I would have loved for this to have been a comic book version of the beloved 1983 Disney holiday cartoon, I was rather pleased with the artwork. However, there was one change that I could not overlook. There's no Tiny Tim in this version of the Charles Dickens classic! Sorry for spoiling, but Tiny Tim is the reason for Scrooge's ultimate change. Yes, scenes from his past and future stir the lead character's darkened soul. But it's the possibility that Tiny Tim will die if he remains in poverty that ultimately causes Scrooge to become a good man. I'm not sure for this massive plot shift. But it was just wrong! I loved the timelessness of the book. The artwork was really good. But that omission of one of the most iconic characters in not just holiday literature but the whole of English lit kept this from being s perfect holiday read!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I actually enjoy it even though i liked Mickey’s Christmas Carol. I enjoyed the fact that they included scenes that weren’t in Mickey’s Christmas Carol such as Scrooge eating dinner at a establishment by himself, the ghosts outside Scrooge’s window when Marly leaves, and Ghost of Christmas Present taking him to see his nephew house. The only things I didn’t like are they didn’t have Fezziwig’s party, Tiny Tim not appearing in the book at all, and no scene in the graveyard.

    These Disney-adapted classics are so much fun. I wish there were more recognizable characters in this book than just Scrooge and Donald (if they had done the Christmas ghosts in the same characters as in the cartoon, that would have been fun, too), but it was still cute.

    It was alright. The cartoon version is much better and gives Scrooge better character growth. A fun little read, but most likely won't reread. It was alright. The cartoon version is much better and gives Scrooge better character growth. A fun little read, but most likely won't reread.
