Scrooge and the Ghost of Christmas Present visit the home of Bob Cratchit, whose family makes up for a meager Christmas dinner with an abundance of heart. We are introduced to Cratchit's youngest son, Tiny Tim, who needs a crutch to walk but doesn't let it interfere with his positive and loving attitude. They share a joyful dinner until a toast to Scrooge is raised. Then, Scrooge and the Ghost leave and find Christmas cheer throughout nighttime streets of London.
