The Forgotten and the Foreign#2: Richard Williams "A Christmas Carol"

When I was a kid, this Oscar winning, animated version of Charles Dicken's classic "A Christmas Carol" aired on ABC during the seventies. The style and beauty of it had a huge impact on me as a kid. The scritchy-scratchy lines, the moody color and design. They stopped airing it for years, and I didn't see it again until I found a copy on VHS in the 90's. Master animator Richard Williams directed, and the legendary Chuck Jones produced --in my mind, the definitive adaptation of Dickens story.
