Synopsis: Celebrate the season with Disney’s most popular holiday movie ever! Starring Mickey Mouse and 35 of the world’s most beloved characters, this one-of-a-kind adventure joyously captures the spirit of Christmas and is sure to delight the entire family. When a huge snowstorm leaves everyone stranded, Mickey and all of his guests at The House Of Mouse, including Pooh, Belle, Snow White, Cinderella, Ariel and many more of his old and new friends, break out the cookies and hot chocolate to help Donald mend his tattered Christmas spirit. The fun starts when Minnie pulls out their favorite holiday home movies and everyone starts to reminisce. Their magical memories soon put everyone in the Christmas mood — even grumpy Donald, who ultimately becomes the star of the evening. Featuring four unforgettable holiday tales, including The Nutcracker, Mickey’s Christmas Carol, Donald On Ice and Pluto And The Christmas Tree, plus an epic finale of The Best Christmas Of All, this holiday treat is bound to become a tradition for you and your family.

Bonus Features Include: Premiere Episode Of HOUSE OF MOUSE, The Sounds Of Christmas — A Disney Sound Effects Featurette, Holiday Sing-Along Songs Deck The Halls and Sleigh Ride

Review: Snowed in at the House of Mouse! This Xmas film debuted back in 2001 and is now finally seeing the deluxe DVD treatment here in 2009. The film basically consists of over 35 Disney favorite characters literally snowed in at Mickey’s place. To entertain his upset guests Mickey shows them holiday shorts from Disney’s past.

-Donald On Ice (1999)

-Pluto’s Xmas Tree (1952)

-The Nutcracker (1999)

-Mickey’s Xmas Carol (1983)

The video transfer is fantastic during the modern House of Mouse segways before each animated short. Obviously the older animated shorts are a little grainy and have varying quality. Overall, it holds up nicely, but there are no illusions that these are vintage animation. The sound is presented in DTS 5.1 and Dolby Digital 5.1. The channel use is mostly front and center. It came off quite nicely.

This is a great DVD for the xmas season. The kids really enjoyed it and I always love watching the vintage Disney holiday toons!
