    I can't believe this has slipped through the net:
    Countdown To Christmas DVD
    It includes the theatrical Prince and the Pauper short starring Mickey Mouse!

    James, do you know whether the original credits are included for the shorts in this collection or have they been cut out?

    I just got my copy today and have had time for the briefest of looks:
    The opening credits of the cartoons are intact - there is not linking footage like on the House Of Mouse DTV products (I don't know about the closing credits on Prince and the Pauper or Small One - I think these longer shorts featured closing credits).
    However, Prince and the Pauper is presented Full Screen. Although I have literally only seen the opening 30 seconds to 1 minute of this short, it is clear it was intended to be shown at a wider ratio, so it looks like this film at least is presented pan and scan.
    I'm hoping Mickey's Christmas Carol, The Prince and the Pauper and The Runaway Brain will be presented properly on Mickey Mouse in Living Colour Vol II (whenever that is released!)
    Here is a full list of the shorts:
    The Prince And The Pauper
    The Art Of Skiing
    Alpine Climbers
    Donald's Snow Fight
    Wynken, Blynken And Nod
    Winter Storage
    The Small One
    I will try to post more information after a full viewing tonight.
