Not quite all.
Although shown in its entire 53-minute version during the 1960s, many current television prints of the "Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol" have been cut by as much as 10 minutes to make room for longer commercial breaks. The "Back to Broadway" framing story is often eliminated, as well as the songs "Ringle, Ringle" and "We're Despicable". See more
