'''''A Christmas Carol''''' is a 1971 film adaptation of [[Literature/AChristmasCarol the novel of the same name]]. It is a half-hour animated film directed by RichardWilliams (with Creator/ChuckJones as executive producer). Alastair Sim and Michael Hordern star as Scrooge and Marley, reprising their roles from the 1951 live-action feature ''Film/{{Scrooge|1951}}''.

Won the AcademyAward for short animated film.

!!''A Christmas Carol'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* CreepyChild: Ignorance and Want, who in this version look positively ''demonic''.
* DerangedAnimation: The entire part focusing on the ghosts. The Past especially comes closest to the original HumanoidAbomination description in the original book.
