In the featurette, "Mickey's Christmas Carol", Goofy is given the role of Jacob Marley. Naturally, Goofy makes the character more amusing than scary. He first appears as Ebeneezer Scrooge's door knocker and gets a nose-honking from his former business partner.
Animated in a transparent blue, the ghost of Goofy emerges in Scrooge's room and promptly trips over his cane.
Goofy unknowingly strangles Scrooge with his chains of punishment and tells the miser that he will be visited by three spirits. Of course, Goofy says "three" while holding up two fingers.
Goofy makes his exit, avoiding the cane on the floor this time, but ends up falling down the stairs instead. This is always a good cartoon to watch during the holidays.
