Clip du jour: 'Walt Disney Christmas'

Posted on

Join me this holiday season and snuggle up with a blanket, a mug of eggnog, and your laptop to watch A Walt Disney Christmas. For as long as I can remember, this 1982 Christmas special has been my yuletide obsession. It features several animated shorts and a smattering of clips from classic Disney films, all chock full of nostalgia-laced Christmas-y goodness. My favorite parts? The awesomely dated beginning, Pluto’s Christmas tree standoff with Chip and Dale, and Donald’s descent into madness as he tries to wrap gifts under the direction of a hilariously condescending speaker (see below; fast-forward to the five-minute mark where the fun begins). And who ever tires of watching Bambi’s charming attempt to find his footing on the icy pond?  So, who’s gonna start the petition to get this into regular holiday rotation?
