Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

The North Pole elves have stuffed the last present into Santa's sack. Soon, Christmas will come to the world. And what to our wondering eyes should appear: but Santa's sleigh and his lively rein...dogs?!

Narrated by James Earl Jones and featuring songs by Grammy Award winner Gary Morris, "Nine Dog Christmas" is the delightful animated tale of nine homeless canines who take the place of flu-stricken reindeer. Lead elf Buzz (Scott Hamilton) must give them flying lessons. And somehow the dogs must escape back to the North Pole after a troublemaker kidnaps them. But Snowplow, Tank, QT and the rest succeed. And little do they expect that the list Santa has checked twice includes a sweet surprise for them.

Product Description

Just two days before Christmas, Santa's reindeer come down with the notorious North Pole flu and are unable to fly Santa's sleigh. In hopes of finding replacements, Buzz, the head elf, makes a trip to New York and stumbles upon a ragtag traveling circus of misfit dogs that he takes back to the North Pole for flight training. On Christmas Eve, the dog's greedy owner steals the dogs back leaving Santa grounded. With the help of his quick-witted protege, Buzz returns the dogs in time to help Santa bring Christmas to the children of the world.

5.0 out of 5 stars caNINE holiday fun. December 1, 2004
Format:DVD
I was surprised to find a new holiday moving starring canines that I
hadn't yet heard of; clearly, it was brand new and had made its way
silently onto shelves. Somehow, it struck me as being a cartoon movie
worth seeing and not a cheesy disappointment. I was right. The DVD
features are surprisingly good; a music video, game, instructional
holiday crafts video for kids, and a particularly nice segment on the
dog breeds represented in the movie as well as mixed breeds comprise
the features. The story, although geared toward younger viewers, is
unique, clever, amusing, and touching enough to make 'Nine Dog
Christmas' suitable for nearly any viewer.

I found the characters of the movie to be in many ways similar to
previously known canine characters. In fact, the movie reminded me of a
six-way cross among "Homeward Bound 2," "All Dogs go to Heaven 2,"
"Oliver and Company," "Lady and the Tramp," "101 Dalmatians," and "Nick
and Noel." It's not that the movie is simply a conglomeration of these
and hasn't got a style all its own. It's simply that MacGregor, the
Scottie, strongly brings to mind Jock of "Lady and the Tramp."
Snowplow, the mysteriously Australian-accented Old English sheepdog, resembles both
Nick from "Nick and Noel" and the Colonel from "101 Dalmatians."
Further, the Chihuahua Cheech is like Tito of "Oliver and Company."
It's almost as though cousins of these dogs were now starring in their
own film!

Tank, one of the main characters along with Snowplow, is a cute, wide-eyed Basset and/or Beagle cross. He and his streetwise stray buddy meet up with and unwittingly join the rest of the pack.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of My Favorites December 4, 2010
Format:DVD
I saw this movie years ago when it aired on Cartoon Network and I immediately put it in my list of favorite Christmas specials. I usually don't like current day specials because they tend to lack the heart and soul from the classics (like the ones Rankin Bass produced for example). However this one (and Disney Channel's The Santa Claus Brothers which I recommend as well) stole my heart. The songs are kind of "blah" to me, but the story makes up for them. I especially loved the character Frenchie, a little bull terrier who is mistreated by his owner and eventually learns the spirit of Christmas for himself.
