Storyline

On Christmas Eve, an old miser named Ebenezer Scrooge is visited by the spirit of his former partner, Jacob Marley. The deceased partner was in his lifetime as mean and miserly as Scrooge is now and he warns him to change his ways or face the consequences in the afterlife. Scrooge dismisses the apparition but the first of the three ghosts, the Ghost of Christmas Past, visits as promised. Scrooge sees those events in his past life, both happy and sad, that forged his character. The second spirit, the Ghost of Christmas Present, shows him how many currently celebrate Christmas. The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come shows him how he will be remembered once he is gone. To his delight, the spirits complete their visits in one night giving him the opportunity to mend his ways.

A Christmas Carol Animated in another place.
22 November 2007 | by mdandcrjrSee all my reviews

This is a classic that was released in 1969 by API productions and was part of CBS televisions "Famous Classic Tales." The animation in this Christmas special is familiar to us, as the team or Zoran Janjic and Walter J. Hucker also brought us "Tales of Washington Irving," which featured the "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" and "Rip Van Winkle" Two more commonly known releases of "A Christmas Carol" were by Rhino Productions in 1993 and by Bridgestone Multimedia in 1998. What few people know is that this cartoon was also released by a company out of Anaheim, California know as Diamond Entertainment Corporation. Diamond Entertainment released it in 1992 as part of a Christmas collection known as "5 Hours of Christmas Cartoons." Diamond Entertainment also released A Christmas Carol by itself on VHS in 1994 as part of its Christmas Classics series. Then, in January 2003, Diamond released it on DVD entitled " A Christmas Carol - A Children's Animated Christmas." In 2005 it was then released again on DVD on a "Christmas Cartoon Collectors Edition Vol. 2." All are out of print. Check Amazon or Ebay for new or used copies.
