While I have great admiration for the Allister Sim version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL-imho the best live action version-and get giddy watching my bluray of MR. MAGOOS version-I am patiently awaiting the definitive version-1972's Richard Williams animated version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL. Would MGM not have rights to this seeing that it was an ABC production. Looking up its Oscar win as animated short from 1972 it clearly has ABC as the production company. Or are there other rights issues? I don't believe this was ever released on vhs either-but I may be wrong. This was a perennial for many years but seemed to have vanished in the late 80s.
