"Santa's Magical Stories" A Semi-Magical DVD Set

Santa’s Magical Stories is another big Warner Bros. Christmas Special boxed set, and unfortunately, all of the specials here have already been released, either as part of one of the other box sets or individually. Not owning any of these other releases I can’t attest to how the video or audio quality of this set […]

"Frosty's Winter Wonderland: Deluxe Remastered Edition" Leaves Me Cold

Frosty the Snowman is one of Rankin-Bass’s most enduring and successful Christmas specials, so it’s not surprising that someone saw fit to make a sequel. In fact, it happened twice: Frosty’s Winter Wonderland was released by Rankin-Bass in 1976, while CBS produced another special, Frosty Returns, in 1992, without the collaboration of Rankin-Bass. What is […]

"T'was the Night Before Christmas": Spirit Trumps Intellect

Rankin/Bass’ 1974 holiday special T’was the Night Before Christmas has got the characteristic charm present in much of the studio’s other work, though this loose take on Clement Moore’s famous poem is about as simple as it gets. Whereas many Christmas specials tell a tale relating to an iconic figure or focus on the virtues […]

"A Christmas Carol" Blu-ray: All the Predictability in High Definition

To compensate for the predictable nature of the done-to-death story, Zemeckis added some ultimately superfluous action scenes that seem more to show off the technology than to enhance the narrative. For example, in the scene with The Ghost of Christmas Yet to Come, Scrooge is shrunk to mouse size and is chased through the city […]

Darrell Van Citters Launches "Magoo Christmas Carol" Weblog

Darrell Van Citters has launched a weblog dedicated to Mr. Magoo’s Christmas Carol (both the original holiday special and his book about its production) on the eve of the book coming back into print with minor revisions and corrections on October 15, 2010 and the special arriving on Blu-ray disc on November 16, 2010. The […]

"Disney's A Christmas Carol": Zombies, Not Ghosts, of Christmas

Let’s start with the basics: Charles Dickens’s A Christmas Carol long ago turned into a cartoon, at least in the public imagination. The story is utterly familiar, and Dickens’s already caricatured crackpots have become stereotypes. Few of us, probably, can easily see past the story’s surfaces (worn and crinkly, like disused wrapping paper) to the […]

"Dora's Christmas Carol Adventure": Seasonal Lessons, Sweetly Told

You know, I have to admit it: Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure is actually pretty good. Now, before you accuse me of going all soft and gooey on account the Christmas theme, I’ll just thank you to click over and read this little notice; does that sound like the work of a man ready to roll […]
