Oscar-winning animation by Richard Williams, with master animator Ken Harris and producer Chuck Jones. From 1971.
Perhaps the greatest animated version of Charles Dickens' classic, and some of the finest realistic animation of humans seen on film, this features the voice of Alistair Sim, reprising his role as Ebenezer Scrooge from the beloved 1951 film Scrooge.
Not available on DVD. This version is derived from VHS.
The brief 30-minute format, lack of musical score and focus on quality animation rather than emotion does mean that the story is truncated somewhat in this version, compared to a full feature film. However, in nearly all respects this version might be considered definitive - as definitive as any adaptation of this often-adapted story can be! A highly visual Christmas classic from the ever-brilliant Richard Williams.
