Mickey's Magical Christmas: Snowed in at the House of Mouse is the first direct-to-video animated film spin-off from Disney Junior and Disney Channel animated television series Disney's House of Mouse.
A snowstorm leaves everyone in the House of Mouse stranded and "bah-humbug" Donald doesn't have any Christmas spirit. Mickey and all the other guests get hot chocolate and cookies to make Donald feel his Christmas spirit. The fun starts when Minnie gets the Christmas cartoons to watch. Their magical memories see to it that everyone has a holiday spirit, even Donald. At the end, everyone gets together and sings a musical number, "The Best Christmas of All".
Among the Christmas cartoons included in this special are Mickey's Christmas Carol and a comic version of The Nutcracker narrated by John Cleese, and starring Mickey as the Nutcracker, Minnie Mouse as Maria, Donald Duck as the Mouse King (it is reveal to the audience Donald is dismayed at the role but reconsiders when he is told by the narrator that he "gets the girl" in the end, though this is a lie), Ludwig von Drake as a Drosselmeyer-like character, and Goofy as the Magical Snow Fairy.
