I’m a sucker for the Moomins, I just adore them. If you don’t know the Moomins, they are happy troll-like creatures who live in Moomin Valley. They are originally from Finland and were created by Tove Jansson in 1945.

Moomins in Christmas is Coming

The Moomins sleep all winter, so winter is an unknown world to them which is the plot of Moominland Midwinter and a couple episodes of the second anime version of Moomins or Tanoshii Moomin Ikka which was made in the early 90s.

In the second half of the episode Christmas is Coming they learn about Christmas, in that they wake up from sleeping and learn Christmas is coming. They don’t know what that means and think Christmas is something big and scary and that a decorated tree, dinner and presents keeps it happy. The episode conveys the message that Christmas is more about giving and not presents but it’s done in a new and fun way.

You can watch the episode on youtube.

Mickey's Magical Christmas:  Snowed in at the House of Mouse

Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse

I admit it I’m a little stumped on Mickey’s Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse. It’s very much all over the place. Some of it is good and some of it just confounding. This video was released in 2001.

Minnie and Ludwig in The Nutcracker

The basic plot is that all the, or most of the Disney characters are snowed in at the House of Mouse and Donald is being a grump, so Mickey uses clips and shorts to try and cheer him up. Which doesn’t work since it’s only when Mickey asks him to put the star on the tree that he lightens up.

The first story is called Donald on Ice. It’s Donald skating and failing a lot. But the ending is cute. Donald runs in to an abominable snowman who wins a snow man contest and wins skate, that was cute.

The second story is Pluto’s Christmas Tree from 1952. Where Mickey cuts down tree with Chip and Dale inside. Pluto barks at them and havoc happens. It’s cute enough.

The third story is The Nutcracker with Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Goofy and Ludwig. It was fun enough. I enjoyed the narrator.

The fourth story is the 1983 Mickey’s Christmas Carol which is a classic.

Scrooge in Mickey’s Christmas Carol

One of the big problems is the leaps in animation quality. The House of Mouse parts are really poorly animated which is jarring with the 1952 and 1983 compared to the 1999-2001 animation. The older stuff is just so much richer.

The House of Mouse parts are the weakest parts but some of the quips from the characters were a little silly but the whole Donald is grumpy is a weak premise and unnecassary. The only thing that was enjoyable about it was a reaction from Grumpy. Did I mention that the animation in those parts are REALY bad?

So I’m a little stumped most of Mickey’s Magical Christmas:  Snowed in at the House of Mouse is alright and some of it bad and pointless. I would recommend just going to bathroom or getting a snack for the House of Mouse parts or just watching the clips on there own.

Also the wikipedia page said Victor and Hugo from Hunchback were in this but I didn’t seem them and I found it so weird that Belle doesn’t get a line, she sings but Beast says the lines.

I mention that I would post some Christmas stuff I like. This by no mean everything just things I feel like mentioning quickly.

This is Eivør Pálsdóttir singing Dansaðu Vindur. It was adapted from the Swendish Eurovision song Den Vilda. This song was a hit in 2013 when it came out. And it’s on the Frostrósir album

Eivør is one of my favorite singers. Here she is singing in Icelandic but she in a lot of other languages including English. It’s just a pretty Christmas song.

How the Grinch Frollo stole Christmas 2013

That Grinchy Frollo stole my Christmas Tree

It’s theHunchblog third year of reviewing Hunchback versions. And for the occasion I have decided to release my very first Hunchback eBook.

The Hunchback  & The Tales of Christmas J.E. Nalbandian Quasimodo picture image

The Hunchback &
The Tales of Christmas

I have been wanting to write something Hunchback related  for a while but I never had any good ideas. Over the last few months, I have thought up a few good ideas but with the Holidays coming, I decided to write a short Christmas Story centered around  Quasimodo. Then I decided to write two more short stories about Frollo and Phoebus. I call it very simply, The Hunchback & The Tales of Christmas. I’m very happy I finally wrote an eBook.

You can get for $0.99 by clicking the button below or the picture above;

I hope you guys enjoy it ^^ and please continue to support theHunchblog in 2014.

 

Watches are great  gift to give as holiday present as they are fun, fashionable and useful. But What watches reflect the Hunchback characters sense of  style? I went through the watches to find the best watches that fit the characters.  I  found an option for both men and women watches. So either buy one for someone in your life who fits the style of a character or ask for one as gift (be sure to the person buying it for to click the link on the Hunchblog ^_~),  and above all else, have fun looking.
