    Bah, Humduck!: A Looney Tunes Christmas

    ★★★½

    My only hobby is watching adaptations of "A Christmas Carol." It's weirdly thrilling, for me, to note the little differences a team of creative people make in regards to Charles Dickens' story. This one, for example. is the first one I've seen in which the ghosts segments seem almost unnecessary. Not much story actually occurs in them. The runtime and jokes come in the scenes in between.
