"The Laughter and the Surprise!" - "A Disney Christmas Gift"

Who doesn't love weirdly-edited bits of Disney animated films and shorts centered around a loose theme? "A Disney Christmas Gift" dates back to 1983, and Disney Channel kids may remember the opening number from it's reuse in "A Disney Channel Christmas".



Is it just me or is the "Sword in the Stone" segment weird as hell? Also, Santa's laugh is oddly sinister in that last cartoon.

Reminds me of that Disney Halloween special I used to have on VHS.

BTW, I'd like to recommend "Hey, Hey It's Knishmas!" ( http://vimeo.com/16211713 ). While it's much more recent than the X-mas specials you've already covered, it's still a very weird/funny/heartwarming episode of a show that (like other good animated shows) ended way too soon for my liking.

Yeah, come to think of it, most Disney holiday specials were like this. (Check the archives; I've reviewed a few of them.) And I really need to catch up with "Chowder" now that you mention it.
