Animated Versions of A Christmas Carol
A Christmas Carol Animated Versions Old and New
Here is a look at some of the animated versions of A Christmas Carol. Ebenezer Scrooge is the man (duck) in this case that everyone loves to hate. Fans of Scrooge look for him faithfully every Christmas and seek out every incarnation they can find.
This year (2009) Jim Carey plays Scrooge in the 3D version timed for a holiday release. This is not a complete list but you will find old favorites such as Mickey's Christmas Carol with its timeless appeal as well as Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol. I found an animated version that presents all animals as well as a Bugs Bunny Christmas Carol featuring the late Mel Blanc.
Whichever version you favor, your heart is sure to be warmed by this childhood moment. I hope your Christmas is happy and blessed. Take a moment to remember your childhood...or your children's childhood...laugh and enjoy the spirit of the season. The world we now live in is moving so fast that this moment in time will be gone before you know it!
Charles Dickens has been a part of my life for as long as I can remember. I read the book the first time as a girl. Through the years A Christmas Carol gave me joy during the holiday season. One of the pleasures of the season is enjoying movies that have become old and valued friends through the years. I am grateful that technology has advanced enough that any of these old toons are available at the touch of a button. Enjoy!
