For the first time, Disney’s version of A Christmas Carol featuring Jim Carrey as Ebenezer Scrooge is available for streaming on the platform. This animated feature tells the story of one Christmas-hating businessman, who’s visited by three spirits one Christmas Eve.
The Muppets’ version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ is already available on Disney+
Everything’s more fun with Kermit the Frog and the rest of the Muppets. In fact, these characters put on their own holiday special, released during 1992.
This movie, titled The Muppet Christmas Carol. features Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, Fozzie Bear as Fozziewig, and the Great Gonzo as the narrator of the story, Charles Dickens.

There’s one version of ‘A Christmas Carol’ featuring Mickey Mouse and his friends
Released in 1983, this movie features Scrooge McDuck as the title character, with Mickey Mouse portraying his kind and Christmas-loving employee, Bob Cratchit. This movie isn’t a musical like The Muppets’ version, but it does feature Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy, and the rest of their pals.
Of course, Goofy is one of the fun-loving spirits, while Pete plays the honest Ghost of Christmas Future. This movie, titled Mickey’s Christmas Carol, is available with a subscription to Disney’s streaming platform.
There are plenty of other Disney-owned holiday movies on this streaming platform. That includes Mickey’s Once Upon a Christmas and Mickey’s Twice Upon a Christmas, which both feature short stories of Mickey and friends.
