It's Christmas time, and the greedy Mister Scrooge is not feeling the holiday spirit. Three ghosts visit him overnight to change his ways. The Ghost of Christmas Past, the Ghost of Christmas Present, and the Ghost of Christmas Yet-to-Come teach him the true meaning of Christmas: kindness and love toward others. Mister Scrooge must show love to those around him to save himself from a sad and lonely future.
A Christmas Carol is a novella by English author Charles Dickens, first published by Chapman & Hall on 19 December 1843. The story tells of sour and stingy Ebenezer Scrooge's ideological, ethical, and emotional transformation after the supernatural visits of Jacob Marley and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present, and Yet to Come. The novella met with instant success and critical acclaim. The book was written and published in early Victorian era Britain when it was experiencing a nostalgic interest in its forgotten Christmas traditions, and at the time when new customs such as the Christmas tree and greeting cards were being introduced. Dickens' sources for the tale appear to be many and varied but are principally the humiliating experiences of his childhood, his sympathy for the poor, and various Christmas stories and fairy tales. The tale has been viewed by critics as an indictment of 19th-century industrial capitalism. It has been credited with restoring the holiday to one of merriment and festivity in Britain and America after a period of sobriety and sombreness. A Christmas Carol remains popular, has never been out of print, and has been adapted to film, stage, opera, and other media multiple times. WIKIPEDIA
Richard Williams' beautifully-executed animated adaptation of Charles Dickens' timeless seasonal parable, which to this day has yet to receive a DVD release anywhere. Produced by Richard Williams Animation and Chuck Jones for ABC. Winner of the 1972 Oscar for Best Animated Short Film. Sourced from a 16mm library print, it's unfortunately nowhere near the standard of 35mm : the sound is quite muffled in comparison to current YouTube uploads; but fortunately there's little print damage bar the vertical lines seen in the first few minutes.

A new large cast adaptation of Dickens’ classic Christmas ghost story "A Christmas Carol"! (now available on Amazon Kindle). Adapted and directed by Mike Poole, the Bexhill Amateur Theatrical Society presents the epic tale of Ebenezer Scrooge, who wasted his life in the pursuit of money, and is visited by some kindly (and some terrifying!) ghosts. A story of greed, fear and love. Can Scrooge be saved or will he die alone? Will Mrs Cratchit’s Christmas pudding be a success? Will Scrooge’s tenants be thrown out into the snow and will Tiny Tim die, as predicted by the Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come? Performed at the De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex, in January 2016, this show was a bright and spectacular success. Filmed and edited by Carey Poole
