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.
