Sip hot chocolate and nibble on sweets while Mr. Magoo puts on a stage show in the role of Ebenezer Scrooge (Did you know his first name is "Quincy"? It says so on the theatre marquee.). The crude animation style (by today's standards) is more than redeemed by the memorable tunes. Scrooge, as always, is voiced by Jim Backus. With the voices of Morey Amsterdam, Jack Cassidy, Royal Dano and Paul Frees.
Saddled with the kind of simplified animation that was considered affordable to produce in the early 1960s, when computerization was non existent, it still manages a winning formula due to the heartfelt musical score.
If you think of it, bring along some non-perishable foods or personal hygiene products to add to our collection for Neighborhood Pantry, South Orangetown's own food charity, and you'll get raffle ticket(s) for a $60 gift card to AMC Cinemas, to be picked on Friday, December 27.
