Scary for my 4yo

Mickey's Christmas Carol is a classic; I remember it fondly from my childhood. I checked the age recommendation (4y) before showing it to my fairly sensitive 4yo. He was so scared that he was physically shaking. The scary scene is the one with the Ghost of Christmas Future showing Scrooge his future of burning in a fiery hell--there are flames and it is terrifying. Parents should also be prepared for questions about hell and afterlife. Common Sense Media let me down this time, my son was not nearly ready for this. (On the other hand, the shorts Pluto's Christmas Tree, Goofy Skiing, Donald Duck Corn Chips---all excellent and he laughed and laughed.)
