Disney Captures Good Cheer In Newest DVD Release
Mon, 16 Nov 2009

"Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse" is currently available on DVD for the holiday season.

The latest Christmas DVD release from Walt Disney Studios Home Entertainment - joining the ranks of "Mickey's Once Upon a Christmas" and the sequel "Twice Upon a Christmas" - returns to the television locale "House of Mouse," the cartoon nightclub owned by Disney favorite Mickey Mouse.

The wide range of Disney characters are all geared up for the holiday festivities until they find themselves stuck in the building by an enormous blizzard. Though characteristically grouchy Donald Duck threatens to bring down the mood, Mickey and the rest of gang make the most of each other's company with home movies and good cheer, realizing that the most important part of Christmas is being with friends and family.

Originally airing in 2001 as a "House of Mouse" holiday special, the movie features a number of classic Disney Christmas cartoons, such as "The Nutcracker," "Mickey's Christmas Carol," "Donald on Ice" and "Pluto and the Christmas Tree." More than 35 Disney characters appear in the special: long-time characters Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Donald Duck and Goofy; Disney princesses Snow White, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, Ariel and Belle; Hundred Acre Wood residents Winnie the Pooh, Tigger and Piglet; Dumbo; Bambi; Timon and Pumba of "The Lion King"; and many more.

Included in the DVD's special features are numerous holiday activities for the entire family. Besides an extra episode of "House of Mouse," viewers will find "The Sounds of Christmas," a featurette with a Disney sound effects artist that gives the audience a special look at the perennial story "'Twas the Night Before Christmas." Also available are sing-along versions of the classic Christmas carols "Deck the Halls" and "Sleigh Ride."

"Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse" retails for .99.
