Silly Symphonies: The Night Before Christmas

Merry Christmas to All!

In order to celebrate this festive occasion I've picked a short piece of Disney film classic to entertain you this morn. A delightful Disney rendition of the traditional Holiday favorite poem 'Twas the Night before Christmas by Clement Clarke Moore.

Told here in the early years of Walt Disney Studios as a Silly Symphonies film, these shorts were created during the same time that Mickey Mouse was really taking off, but were designed to be brief musical novelties. Silly Symphonies not only entertained the viewer but allowed the Disney Artists to be a little more creative, experiment with their work, and set the course for the evolution of animation.

First released on December 9th, 1933 this short tells the familiar tale of a visit from St. Nick. Did this happen at your house last night? Watch careful, because even though Mickey Mouse isn't the star of this Disney film, he makes sure to get in his cameos with the army of toys being left beneath the tree.

All of us here at WDW For Grown Ups hope that you're having a wonderful holiday today surrounded your family and friends. Was Santa good to you? Leave us a comment and let us know the best present that was found under your Christmas Tree.
