Unfortunately, his dad is snowed in in Dubai – yes that’s right – it turns out the evil Ebeneeza Freeza is freezing the whole world up so he can sell his hot ice-cream! With the help of a motley crew of fun characters (and the participation of the audience), Mickey is going to save the world (and Christmas)!
