Since I've been picking up the Walt Disney's Treasures collections, I've been largely ignoring the "Classic Cartoon Favorites," but I decided to pick this one up to go with my library of Christmas DVDs. I was slightly disappointed when I watched it. Of the seven shorts included on this set, only three of them are holiday-related. "Mickey's Good Deed," an early cartoon about Mickey trying to provide a merry Christmas to a home of orphans, is the gem of the collection. It really shows off the inherent goodness of the character, and was a little funnier than some of the later cartoons, as he wasn't quite the straight man he would become.
"The Clock Watcher," a Donald cartoon, features the screwy duck working as a gift wrapper, and "Toy Tinkers" is a Donald-vs-Chip-and-Dale classic.
The rest of the cartoons seem to have been included by virtue of being set in the wintertime, even though they've got nothing to do with the stated theme. They're okay cartoons, but not what I was looking for. Still, I'll get the other Holiday volume of this series (Vol. 9) as it contains probably the two greatest Disney Christmas cartoons -- "Pluto's Christmas Tree" and "Mickey's Christmas Carol."
