New and Notable: Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol soundtrack

| 3 Comments

In 1962, Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol, a musical adaptation of Charles Dickens' A Christmas Carol, became the first animated holiday special ever produced specifically for television. It ran on TV during the holiday season for many years and became a favorite of several generations along with other animated classics like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman.

On November 2, 2010, the soundtrack for the program will be made available through Vivendi Entertainment as a digital album. One of my favorite musical numbers from the show is We're Despicable (Plunderer's March), which includes the memorable lyric, "We're rep-re-hensible. We'll steal your pen-and-pencible."  Check it out in the video posted below.

The album has been given fresh new cover art that features Mr. Magoo and the Tiny Tim character from the cartoon. The program is available on DVD and for download on iTunes.

hey, Fritz, thanks for the info- would like to order the CD asap. The songs are kinda funny/charming … could not find a place to order one the vivendi entertainment site-do you have any insights? thanks, rebecca

The release of the soundtrack to Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol is wonderful news. Is there a possibility that it will not only be a digital download release only? Hopefully so. Either way, I eagerly look forward to Nov 2nd’s release…a wonderful holiday “present” to us Magoo fans. Idea: Please release the DVD to “The Famous Adventures of Mr Magoo”…the NBC series from the 1960’s!

Go to amazon.com and search under MP3 downloads. It will be availble Nov.2
