Now Marley was dead: to begin with. There is no doubt, whatever about that.
So begins the haunting story of Charles Dickens's Christmas Carol. The writer uses this very intriging hook to set the scene and capture the reader’s interest right off the bat. What possible importance could the life or death of this Marley have to a story titled a Christmas Carol? The author does this, to make it mysterious, to set the tone. This is a story of ghosts, there is a reason he mentions a death right off. This is one fact that you must keep in mind, otherwise the whole mystery might be tainted with the mundane. If the first visitor wasn’t a ghost, if it was some trick of Marley’s so the other’s might be tricks too. The audience needs to know without question that they are dealing with a ghost.
So my wonderful viewers I begin this analysis with a similar caution for a similar reason. I want you to focus on one thing that will make this episode strange.
Now the Animation was completely finished to begin with. There is no doubt, whatever about that.
The script was written, the character designs were set, and most notably the long laborious process of animation was done. The fractions of the pie were positioned over Miko’s head. Five’s button was smashed. Phil’s bunny glitch was in it’s canister.
