Donald Duck's nephews learn why holidays come once a year, Goofy and son discover the spirit of Santa, and Mickey and Minnie reenact a classic tale of giving in this all-new holiday offering. Kelsey Grammer (TV's Frasier) narrates as Donald hosts Christmas at his house, complete with an egg and pancake breakfast, a sled for each duckling in the closet, and Daisy under the mistletoe. But the celebration gets old fast when the boys' wish for Christmas every day comes true. Next up, Goofy's son wonders whether there is a Santa after the villainous Pete tells him there's not and he catches Dad impersonating the portly gift-giver. Goofy demonstrates the spirit of giving by taking a meal and presents to less-fortunate neighbors, and many Goofy-style mishaps later, father and son have a surprise visitor. In the third story, the mouse lovebirds give an updated spin to O. Henry's "The Gift of the Magi," with Minnie having the heirloom watch with no chain and Mickey a harmonica with no case. This trio of Christmas stories adds up to an hour of heartfelt fun, capped off by the gang singing "Jingle Bells." Perfect holiday cheer for those 4 and up. --Kimberly Heinrichs
It looks like the end of the line.
Until tomorrow, when the same thing happens all over again... because yesterday is today, and today is tomorrow, and it'll all be the same day in and day out!
Stop! Get a hold of yourself!
We know how you feel. If I see the same presents over and over again, I'll go out of my mind too.
And if I eat any more turkey, I'm gonna need new clothes!
Why don't you play some music for us, Mickey?
Don't you think you should open your present first? And by the way, what time is it?
I think it's time to open your present.
Oh, uh... a case... for my harmonica.
Oh, a chain for my... watch... but I traded my watch to buy you that case.
And I traded my harmonica to get you that chain for your watch.
Oh, Mickey. I can't believe you gave up what means the most to you!
Don't worry, Minnie. You're all the music I'll ever need.
