Looking Back: Mickey's Christmas Carol

Two weeks ago I did a 'Looking Back' entry on Scrooge and Marley from Disney's classic, animated short, Mickey's Christmas Carol.

Another favorite release by the Walt Disney Classics Collection from that short was Scrooge McDuck (as Ebenezer Scrooge) and Daisy Duck (as Isabelle). 

This year, I added a new twist to the scene adding the Jiminy Cricket ornament. It was a perfect fit both in size and moment from that short, as Ebenezer was visiting his past and Jiminy was the Ghost of Christmas Past.

Scrooge and Daisy, sculpted by Ruben Procopio were Limited to Production Year 2010 and released in December of that year. It was a two-piece set release. 

Jiminy Cricket, sculpted by Patrick Romandy-Simmons, was released as an Open Edition release in July, 1997 and retired in July, 1999. Jiminy was released along with Mickey Mouse (as Bob Cratchit), Minnie Mouse (as Mrs. Cratchit) and Scrooge McDuck as Ebenzer Scrooge.
