Freeze Frame: Mickey's Christmas Carol

While numerous characters from the Disney stable play starring and supporting roles in Mickey's Christmas Carol, there are in fact some interesting cameos scattered throughout the film.

While Mr. Toad and Chip and Dale are quite obvious in the Christmas party scene, there are a few other not so quickly recognized characters in the same sequence.

Grandma Duck and Uncle Waldo Goose are in attendance. Horace Horsecollar and Clarabelle Cow dance by quickly, as does Lady Cluck, from Robin Hood.

Also from Robin Hood, Skippy appears with his good buddy Toby Turtle, as Rat and Mole look on.

Two of the Three Little Wolves are chased by a youthful version of Practical Pig.

While Donald is now the companion of Toad's old friend Cyril.

Incredibly, one fab five character was noticably absent from the film. Sadly, Mickey's pal Pluto didn't make the cut.

That's Uncle Waldo Goose from The AristoCats with Grandma Duck, not Gus Goose.

Thanks Jeff. Looks like I did it again. I thought he looked a bit on the thin side . . .

And a little more full of the "Christmas Cheer" (hiccup!) than Gus would be!

These freeze frames are my favorite part of this wonderful blog. I always love the inside jokes of Disney (and other) animators. Keep it up!

I've been reading the "freeze frames" and it's amazing!

Gus Goose IS in this movie, though. He can be seen in the dancing crowd!
