There's long been a strange relationship between Halloween and Christmas, perhaps the fact that two of the year's biggest holidays arrive at the end of a month, at the end of the year with just a month bridging the gap between the two. While Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas might be the most famous example, this year Mickey Mouse is getting in on the action with a new DVD collection, Mickey Mouse: Merry & Scary. Featuring the fantastic retro-styled Mickey Mouse cartoons from Disney Channel, families can get into the Halloween spirit as Mickey, Donald, and Goofy swap hair-raising Halloween stories. Then fast forward a couple months to Donald’s first Christmas festivities with friends! Check out a preview below...

The Scariest Story Ever: A Mickey Mouse Halloween Spooktacular!

For Halloween, Mickey has tricked out his house like a “tomb, sweet, tomb" and along with his pals Donald and Goofy, plans to tell hair-raising Halloween stories! However, his attempt at being scary falls flatter than a pancake. Can Mickey conjure up a truly terrifying tale before the stroke of midnight?

Duck The Halls: A Mickey Mouse Christmas Special

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…to migrate south for the winter! But Donald wants to stay put and celebrate his first Christmas with his friends. Mickey creates the ultimate list of everything to make Donald's first Christmas great, but before you can catch a snowflake on your tongue, Donald has turned into a shivering, sneezing duck-cicle!
