    He describes his job as a "full-time pleasure," despite the obstacles he had to surpass to get to where he is today.
    "You're sitting in front of a screenplay and a piano and you're told to 'go wild.' The people who work at Disney love what they do, and that's why it's so good," he says.
    The Christmas special tells a story of Mickey, Minnie, and their pals attempting to celebrate Christmas at their snowy Cabin, when Pluto causes Santa to lose all the presents on his sleight, leading the crew to travel to the North Pole on a quest to save Christmas.
