With a larcenous penguin as a companion, Olive meets interesting and interestingly-named characters as she heads to the North Pole to save Christmas. This special truly deserved its Emmy nomination and will entertain both you and your kids.
A last bit of trivia: When Drew Barrymore (the voice of Olive) was in Woody Allen's musical, "Everyone Says I Love You", she was the only star in it who was able to convince Woody her singing was so bad that she should have a voice double for her songs. That should make it all the more interesting when you get to hear Drew sing in "Olive, The Other Reindeer".
Some reviewers have complained that OLIVE may not be suitable for very young children. Perhaps not. But the show has considerable merits for older children and adults, not least because of its charmingly awkward "cutout" animation style, its songs, the bubbly voicing of the title character by Drew Barrymore, and its not inconsiderable throwaway wit (the bus Olive rides is a "Mauvehound"). Without commercials, OLIVE runs a mere 45 minutes but the DVD also includes a making-of short. Highly recommended.
Voiced by Drew Barrymore, Olive is touching and sure to become an annual tradition in our household, which is why I immediately bought the DVD (and the book) for my little guy after discovering it on cable TV earlier this month. It's one of those rare finds where my four-year-old son enjoyed it, and so did his dad and I. Nuanced enough for adults, it still resonates with kids, and succeeds in filling both age groups with holiday joy.
Everything you could ask for in a Christmas special and a real find. I have no idea why this one isn't better known.
