Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas

Synopsis: A Christmas themed, three-part anthology-style video. The first part, "Donald Duck: Stuck on Christmas", is essentially a retelling of Groundhog Day (1993), with Huey, Dewey, and Louie reliving Christmas ad infinitum. Next is "A Very Goofy Christmas", in which Goofy tries to overcome his son's skepticism about Santa Claus. Finally, "Mickey & Minnie's Gift Of The Magi" recreate the classic tale of ironic Christmas selflessness. The stories are linked together by narration by Kelsey Grammer.

Once a year,

there's a marvellous night,

When enchantment and wonder

spark and take flight.

Each home fills with joy

on this grand holiday,

With hearts growing warm

in a magical way.

The rooms are covered with wreaths.

The mantel has stockings beneath.

Lights twinkle

and bells brightly chime.

The moment's arrived, it's here,

Christmas time.

Three precious gifts

lie under this tree.

What secrets they hold,

Let's look and we'll see.

The first tells a story

for us all to hear

About laughter and family,

and those we hold dear.

We love Christmas so much,

we want it to stay.

But what if we wished

it was here every day?

Anchor's aweigh!

Full steam ahead!

Swab the deck, you...

All aboard! Next stop, Funnyville.

It's here.

- The one

- The only

best day of the year.

It's Christmas!

Oh, boy! Just what we always wanted.

- Hey, look at this.

- Cool!

Merry Christmas, boys.

You know we have to wait

for the family.

Sorry, Uncle Donald.

Ah, it's Christmas,

and I've got a special surprise

for you.

But you didn't even...

...read the... card.

We'll read it later.

- Merry Christmas, everybody.

- Indeed.

Where are my boys and my kisses?

I could just eat you up.

Oh, Donald?

Oh boy, oh boy, oh boy!

Aunt Daisy, catch ya later.

Last one down the hill's

a rotten egg...

Not me!

Boys! Dinner.

The one thing better...

...than presents...

...is Christmas dinner.

Isn't this lovely? All of us gathered

for a wonderful meal.

It's my favourite part of Christmas.

- Turkey!

- Donald, would you like to carve?

Boys! Where are your manners?

- This turkey is so good.

- Your gravy never has lumps.

We love your cooking,

Aunt Daisy.


they're just enjoying my dinner.

Ah, phooey. I don't want any.

Alright, who's for carolling?

We don't wanna sing,

Uncle Scrooge.

We wanna play with our toys.

- Bedtime, boys.

- Not yet.

Christmas can't be over already.

Good night, boys.

What a great day.

We should do it more often.

Yeah. Once a week should be enough.

It'll be another 365 days

until we get more Christmas.

Star light, star bright,

first star I see tonight,

I wish I may, I wish I might,

have the wish I wish tonight.

We wish it was Christmas

every day.

All aboard! Next stop, Funnyville.

Boy, those guys

sure like that choo-choo.

They're gonna

play with it again today?

Let's play with our new toys.

They're gone.

Hey, what is this?

Huh? Whoa!

Didn't we open these yesterday?

Are you thinking what I'm thinking?

There's only one way to find out.

We're gonna have to open

these presents.

Merry Christmas.

- Uncle Donald, we did it.

- It's Christmas again!

It's Christmas again, Uncle Donald.

Two days in a row.

You boys must have been dreaming.

We almost forgot

about our special surprise.

Where are my kisses?

I could just eat you up.

We should have seen that coming.

Last one down the hill's

a rotten egg.


Boys, dinner.

Isn't this lovely? All of us gathered

for a wonderful meal.

This is my favourite part

of Christmas.


Boys! Where are your manners?


they're just enjoying my dinner.

Good night, boys.

- That was great.

- Double great.


All aboard! Next stop, Funnyville.

Yeah! Alright!

Merry Christmas, boys.

Look out, Uncle Donald.

- Merry Christmas, everybody.

- Merry Christmas, indeed.

Where are my boys and my kisses?

No, you don't.

I think this is my favourite part

of Christmas.

Merry Christmas, boys.

- Merry Christmas.

- I could eat you up...

...my favourite part of Christmas.

We wish you a merry Christmas

All aboard! Next stop, Funnyville.
