Welcome back to another Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia post, co hosted with my friends Jodi from Magical Mouse Schoolhouse, Heidi from Heidi’s Head, and Jenn from Disney Babies Blog!  We’ve got two tidbits of Disney Trivia this week from the great website “This Day in Disney History” for you today!

Did you know on December 11, 1992…

Walt Disney Pictures releases The Muppet Christmas Carol – the fourth feature film to star The Muppets, the first distributed by Disney, and the first produced after the death of Muppets creator Jim Henson. The film is directed by Jim Henson’s son Brian and stars Michael Caine as Ebenezer Scrooge.

 Also, on December 10, 1932…

Disney’s Silly Symphony cartoon Santa’s Workshop, directed by Wilfred Jackson, is released.

If you are like me, and you just love watching the old Disney shorts, then you know I had to find a copy of Santa’s Workshop on YouTube to share, so here you go! Enjoy!

This concludes our Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia for this week!  Stop by next week for another great bit of Disney Trivia!  Do you have any Disney Trivia to share with us?  If so, write it up on your blog and share it using the sharing link below, and thanks!

Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia: A Christmas Carol

Hello, and welcome back to another edition of the Tiggerific Tuesday Trivia!  This week, I’m bringing you a little bit of trivia from This Day in Disney History!  Enjoy!

Did you know…that on November 6, 2009, Disney’s A Christmas Carol opens in U.S. theaters? Written and directed by Robert Zemeckis, the film stars Jim Carrey (his first part in a Disney film) in a multitude of roles, including Ebenezer Scrooge. Adapted from Charles Dickens’ 1843 story of the same name, A Christmas Carol is a 3-D film produced through the process of performance capture – a technique Zemeckis had previously used in his films The Polar Express and Beowulf.

Furthermore, did you know that the 2009 A Christmas Carol is Disney’s third retelling of Charles Dickens’ classic tale in 26 years. Disney released Mickey’s Christmas Carol in 1983 and later distributed The Muppet Christmas Carol for Jim Henson Productions in 1992 (which Disney later acquired the rights to).
