Overview

A handful of Walt Disney's best loved characters appear in this direct-to-video release, which tells three different tales of the holiday season. First, Donald Duck and Daisy Duck are enjoying Christmas Day with their nephews Huey, Dewey, and Louie, when the boys wish that every day could be Christmas. Their wish comes true, and before long, they learn why the holiday only comes once a year. Next, Goofy has to teach his son about the real meaning of Christmas after Junior catches Dad impersonating Santa Claus. And Mickey Mouse and Minnie Mouse appear in an updated version of the O. Henry classic The Gift of the Magi, in which they both give up a prized possession in order to give their beloved something special for Christmas -- with unexpected consequences. Kelsey Grammer narrates.

Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
This sweet stocking stuffer from Disney is a collection of three original cartoons that demonstrate the spirit of the holidays (it's in "the hearts that we touch and the care that we show"). The first, and best, echoes Groundhog Day, as Donald Duck's nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, find themselves "Stuck on Christmas" until they stop being selfish and greedy. In "A Very Goofy Christmas," Goofy's son Max suffers a crisis of belief when a mean neighbor insists that there is no Santa Claus. Finally, "Gift of the Magi" recasts O. Henry's classic story with Mickey and Minnie, each of whom sacrifices a prized possession to buy a special gift for the other. The animation is a notch above Saturday morning television, and it's a pleasure to see these classic characters revived to captivate a new generation. Narrated by Kelsey Grammer and brimming with slapstick, "Once upon a Christmas" is a spoonful of sentimental sugar to help the holidays go down.
