Scrooge McDuck Wikia

A Magical Kingdom Yuletide Special is a live-action musical written by Barnette Ricci and directed by Rudi Goldman. It features Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Scrooge McDuck, Donald Duck, Frosty, Goofy, Pluto, Chip and Dale, Santa Claus, the Seven Dwarfs and various extras.


Mickey, Minnie and several passers-by enjoy an afternoon in a snow-covered park, a few days before Christmas. Mickey even performs some 'Christmas magic' to bring a snowman to life and materialize a sleigh out of thin air. Fun and music ensue, but are interrupted by Scrooge McDuck, who, true to his first name, considers Christmas nothing but a waste of time for these people who could just as well be working. Under pressing from the crowd, Mickey then uses some more magic to transport the whole crowd to Santa Claus's workshop, to try to get Scrooge to admit the wonder of Christmas. There they find Goofy filling in for Santa — but that doesn't mean Scrooge's heart can't be warmed by the Christmas spirit…
