Mickey’s Magical Christmas
All-star Disney special
The special “Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse,” which was released recently on DVD, is a true treat for Disney fans that offers a “The Love Boat” array of classic and modern Disney characters. It is also simply a really fun presentation with funny Disney cartoons.
“The House of Mouse” is a cartoon series that ran between 2001-2003. It was set in night club that Mickey Mouse, who also served as host, operated and from which he showed short Disney cartoons. The house band was the Quack Street Boys, which consisted of the three nephews of Donald Duck.
The audience consisted of a plethora of Disney characters from every era of the studio. Simon and Pumba of “The Lion King” interacted with Jiminy Cricket, Cinderella waited in line with the Aladdin gang, and the evil queen from “Snow White” hung out with other villains.
“Magical Christmas” involves Mickey, his crew, and the audience getting snowed into the club on Christmas Eve. Wanting to keep the Christmas spirit going, Mickey shows Christmas and winter-themed cartoons.
One of the shorter cartoons involves Donald and his nephews ice skating and competing in a snowman-building contest; the abominable snowman in the episode is a great character.
Another hilarious short cartoon has Mickey and his dog Pluto choosing the tree in which chipmunks Chip and Dale live as their Christmas tree. Hilarity and mayhem ensue when the ‘munks enter Mickey’s house in the tree. Unfortunately, they do not sing Christmas carols.
“Mickey’s Christmas Carol,” which was released separately on DVD earlier this year and which I have reviewed, is the centerpiece cartoon. This is a fun and short version of the Dickens classic starring classic Disney characters.
“Magical Christmas” offers the holiday present of the premiere episode of “House of Mouse.” This amusing episode has Mickey et al dealing with the new owner of the club threatening to shut them down.
I also like the slightly dark and modern tone of the premiere episode. Mickey reminds audience members to not eat each other, and Jafar hypnotizes Daisy Duck into letting him in the club.
The other special features on the DVD are some sing-along videos of holiday songs.
