In December of 1933, The Walt Disney Studios released its own version of the classic Clement Clarke Moore poem as its fortieth animated Silly Symphony cartoon.
Michael Eisner added that, in 1991, ”the technology will be so advanced and changed, videocassettes will be on thimbles or something…”
A little-known album picks up where the movie left off, weaving previous recordings from the Disneyland catalog into the mix, including a record conceived by Walt himself.
