'Twas The night Before Christmas DVD cover


 'Twas the Night Before Christmas (Deluxe Edition) [Blu-ray]

 Review by Suzanne Lanoue 12/6/11

This is a very 70's Christmas cartoon and very fun to watch because of the old-fashioned animation. They took the classic poem and made a little story out of it for their half-hour program. It is really cute.

A town learns that Santa won't be visiting because someone wrote into the local paper, saying that he didn't exist.  The town clockmaker proposes that he make a huge clock that will have the children singing a song to Santa Clause on Christmas Eve, urging him to land there. He has mice that live in his house, and one of them is a little brainy mouse that wrote the letter, causing all the fuss.

Anyone should enjoy the cartoon, even older folks. Movie and stage star Joel Grey is the voice of Joshua, the clock maker.

The DVD contains an extra called "A Global Holiday" that tells us all about Christmas in other countries. I found it very interesting, and I learned some things I didn't know. The DVD has both a regular DVD and a Blu-ray version, so anyone can play it.

More Information:

A holiday sourpuss brings Santa to the rescue of a small town?s Christmas. For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some resident has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas ?a fraudulent myth!? Skeptical Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses ?and let up a little on the wonder why.? How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa?s jolly return to town ? and the joyous finale of the animated fable inspired by Clement Moore?s poem and produced by the merrymaking conjurers of Rankin/Bass Studios. The voice talents of Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel make this festive fable even more fun.
