Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas Reviews

It’s reassuring when the new generation of Disney cartoonists are able to recapture the joie de vivre of the company's Walt’s classics; this quintet of yuletide homilies should make the season bright both for moppets and baby boomers. In "Belles on Ice," Daisy Duck (Voice of Tress MacNeille) behaves like Tonya Harding to Minnie Mouse's (Russi Taylor) Nancy Kerrigan, but the skating divas learn that a shared spotlight shines the brightest. "Christmas: Impossible" ponders much-needed behavioral adjustments for Donald Duck's (Tony Anselmo) incorrigible nephews. After bugging Uncle Scrooge (Alan Young) with their impishness, Huey, Dewey, and Louie fear that Santa might retaliate, so the naughty ducklings mail themselves to the North Pole and wreak havoc in the toy workshop while trying to forge their names on Santa's list. But they eventually opt for an act of selflessness on Scrooge’s behalf. The dread specter of embarrassing parents surfaces in "Christmas Maximus," when Goofy's (Bill Farmer) son, Max (Jason Marsden), dreads introducing his girlfriend to his bumbling dad. But Max discovers his pop’s virtues far outweigh his faults. Frazzled by mall shopping and incessant caroling, Donald Duck knows what "Donald’s Gift" should be: A little peace and quiet. But he's a softy at heart, and winds up realizing the value of shared holiday experiences. Finally, in "Mickey’s Dog-Gone Christmas," Mickey (Wayne Allwine) regrets yelling at Pluto for knocking down his decorated tree. Pluto runs away and gets an offer to become an honorary reindeer -- will Santa’s sleigh guide the pooch home to his repentant master? A candy-cane palate and a festive soundtrack bolster this omnibus, which allows Disney favorites a chance to strut some new stuff.
