I've been looking this for years: Disney's Mickey's Christmas Carol is being released on DVD. (This article says that it's been released before, but I never heard about it; Disney's always releasing so many things that it's hard to keep track.) I believe this was my first exposure to the story -- probably my first exposure to Dickens in any form, come to think of it -- and I used to watch it obsessively on the old Beta machine on which we'd taped it off the TV. I realize this is a highly controversial opinion, but Goofy is my favorite Marley's ghost of all time.
In other Christmas Carol news, the train pulls into my local station this Tuesday! It was originally going to get here in October, but I guess they must be running ahead of schedule.
And get this: Both of these events, the DVD release and the train's arrival, are taking place on my birthday.
How's that for a Dickensidence?*
*A word I just coined. If this kind of thing is going to keep happening, as seems likely, we need a term that's a little easier to use than Dickens-like coincidence.
