It Nearly Wasn't Christmas (1989)

Does anyone else remember this movie? They used to air it on Disney channel. I still remember it really vividly and the song that the dad of the little girl sings, "It nearly wasn't christmas this year cus santa wouldn't go..."

Anyway, I was hoping some other people remember it and best case scenario have a copy of it recorded or know where I can find this movie? I am pretty dang good at finding stuff on the internet, be it legal means of obtaining it or not :looks around:

However, I can not find a download of this movie ANYWHERE. I looked last year too, but no luck. I'm just holding out hoping someone that has it recorded on VHS can put it on the internet somewhere. I really want to see it again. Of course they never released an actual dvd for the movie, so I have no idea how I can see this movie again.

I meant to include the imdb page: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0097601/

I didn't see an edit button for my post, so I'm just making another reply.

I do remember that movie, and I really liked it, I think you can buy it but I have not seen it on TV in a very long time.

The closest I ever came to finding the movie was a while back apparently blockbuster had a digital version up for sale for download, according to people online, but I haven't been able to find such a thing

Wish disney would just leak it onto the internet. It's not like they are making any money from it now.

If it was some expensive movie or something that they would be making a lot of money off of they might not want you to distribute it period, but from experience most of these places don't really care about old movies that they don't show anymore and didn't put on dvd's. Just as long as you're not selling it.

Flakey, do you know what years those are? I've not seen either of them, but I came up with this on youtube: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=a46lTHxc1bo

I don't know if it is the show you're looking for, but it is christmas and has mice in it, so lemme know. I looked for the cricket in time square, but couldn't find anything initially. TV movies are some of the hardest things to find online I've found. Generally they are never released on DVD, so your only hope is that you find someone who recorded it on VHS and is willing to put it online.
