Mickey's twice upon christmas (67 mins)


Mickey's Twice Upon a Christmas is a computer-animated direct-to-video movie on VHS and DVD made by The Walt Disney Company in 2004.
It is the sequel to Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas from 1999. The segments in this video feature Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Pluto, Goofy, Max (Goofy's Son), Donald Duck, Daisy Duck, Huey, Dewey and Louie, and Scrooge McDuck in five different segments.
Each segment is introduced with a magical pop-up book, as if the audience is actually reading each story. This video shows a whole new look at the Disney characters as they are seen in 3D computer animation for the first time, and in a style remeniscent of the oil paintings of Disney ducks by Carl Barks.
