Editorial Reviews

For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas a fraudulent myth! The skeptical rodent 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 Junctionville -- and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore's poem. Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel are featured voices. Approx. 23 minutes.Year: 1974

Rankin Bass presents "Twas the Night before Christmas" This delightful Christmas special is based on the poem by Clement Moore adapted and written for the show by Jerome Coopersmith and produced by Arthur Rankin Jr.It features charming songs by Maury Laws and lyrics by Jules Bass. Some of the most memorable songs are, "Even a Miracle Needs a Hand" and "Calling Santa," among others.

There is a reading of the poem in the beginning of the show and when it gets to the part of "..not a mouse was stirring," Father Mouse played by George Gobel catches us up on the events at hand. That being the hope that everything will turn out right in Junctionville and Santa will still visit and everyone can be happy again. Of course I could tell you all the details but you're better off watching it unfold yourself as to not spoil it if you haven't seen it before.

Now on to this deluxe edition at hand. On the special alone I would give this show 5 stars but being this is a remastered deluxe edition thus I am scrutinizing it more. Truth be known, I'm a bit fed up with the majority of these deluxe editions from WB because the extras have nothing or hardly anything to do with Rankin Bass and it's talents. Just who is WB marketing these deluxe editions to? Certainly not real Rankin Bass fans. It leaves me perplexed. They have removed the Frosty's Winter Wonderland special from the last incarnation on this dvd so basically they're asking us to double dip it seems on this special being remastered and the extras. So let's see 25 minutes and a bunch of so-so extras.

I gave this 5 stars for two reasons....they issued it with a nice cover (Although, I would have used the PAUL COKER, JR. lettering for the logo) AND they put the RANKIN/BASS logo (Drawn by my friend Patrick Owsley and taken from my first book)! BRAVO for that! Now, SUPERDAVE80s is right...where is the content? They actually removed FROSTY'S WINTERWONDERLAND from the disc we had before and put nothing on here for extras? I am sure WARNER BROS has the money to do these things correctly and put nice documentaries on all the discs issued. They should all actually be put into one big box set and they would make tons of money BUT these are the people that are putting COURAGE THE COWARDLY DOG season one out instead of SECRET SQUIRREL and ATOM ANT???!!!! Enough said!

This is a classic and the songs are fantastic. The DVD is a great purchase because the one they show every year on ABC family leaves out the song "Give Your Heart a Try" to fit in a couple extra commercials.

When I was very little my mom recorded 4 Christmas movies off of the TV and this was one of them. Needless to say, the video is no longer in working condition, and until now I was only able to find the other 3 videos. Now my collection is complete. So glad I could find it. It shipped quickly and was in perfect condition!

I already have the DVD release that contains "Frosty's Winter Wonderland" and "'Twas the Night Before Christmas", so I don't know if there is any logical reason why I would want to spend money on this DVD. I know this one is a "Remastered Deluxe Edition", but can anyone honestly tell me if the transfer on this DVD is any better than the one paired with the Frosty special? If the picture and sound are really that much better on this presentation, then perhaps I could see myself buying this one, but I just don't understand Warner Bros. decision making in recent years. Why waste so much money on a mass-retail release of a 30-minute TV special with lackluster bonus content? We all know that a pressed DVD is capable of holding much more content than this. I can say the same thing about them giving the 30-minute "Yogi Bear's All-Star Comedy Christmas Caper" a mass-retail release and releasing the feature-length "Yogi's First Christmas" through the Archive program. But, in terms of Rankin-Bass, I am a little disappointed that a complete set of all 13 WB-owned Christmas specials has not been produced yet. There are two specials given no release of any kind, "The First Christmas" and "The Little Drummer Boy Book II". There is an Archive release pairing "The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus" with "Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey", but why pair it with Nestor when that special was already given a wide retail release paired with "The Year Without a Santa Claus"? I don't think anyone at WB even has a clue or really even cares. Their motivation is whatever they can do to make a quick buck. This is not the days of VHS where it made logical sense to release a 30-minute special on a stand-alone release, so why all the sudden try to revert back to that era with these DVD releases?

Wonderful story with a moral behind it. Both my granddaughter and I will enjoy this Christmas "special" for many years to come.

The same cartoon movie you might have seen in the 70s during your childhood on one of those "Special" nights.
