    I've been trying to remember this all day and have drawn a blank.

    The episode in question might be part of a Christmas special or something. Anyway, it involves Donald Duck getting into a snowball fight with his nephews. They construct these incredible ice fortresses. Donald fights them on a ship and his nephews are in a ice castle.

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    "Donald's Snow Fight" from 1942. Directed by Jack King

    I haven't seen the full specs yet, but with any luck, it will show up on the "Chronological Donald" Walt Disney Treasures set next year. It may have been edited in whole or part into some of those anthology programs from the 70s and 80s, too.

    Regards,

    Thanks guys!

    I did some more snooping around and saw that the cartoon with Mickey, Pluto, Chip and Dale is also on the Disney Christmas program.

    I'm hoping they show it sometime before Christmas. [​IMG]

    As far as I know, none of the early Disney Channel specials see airtime nowadays. The last to be aired regularly was A Disney Channel Halloween. Some of the DTV stuff shows up now and then, in a re-edited fashion. A holiday airing is unlikley in with the PC mindset of corporate America in the new millennium, as a 'Christmas' special is considered a 'no-no.'

    Wasn't that Donald Duck cartoon a part of "Mickey's Christmas Carol," aired on one of the broadcast networks each year? I've seen that one quite a few times. It was always one of my favorites. It also had the one with Mickey, Pluto, Chip and Dale.

    And I may be remembering wrong, but was the episode where Goofy goes skiing ever a part of that special? I remember seeing that cartoon a few times, but then I'd look for it in the Christmas special, thinking that's where it was from, but then it wasn't in there. Was "Christmas Carol" in a half-hour slot or full hour?

    Yeah, that sounds right. My family had that on tape, and we used to watch it every year. I need to try and dig it up...
