Editorial Reviews

Twas the Night Before Christmas: Deluxe Edition

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.

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

Love this story, one of our families Christmas stories. what a great new way to tell the story "Twas the night before Christmas" . the people and the mice are so wonderfully created by Hanna Barbera artistic designs and story by Clement Moore's poem. Great voices behind these characters include: Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel . wonderful and definitely recommend for all ages.

Love this Christmas cartoon. I grew up watching it and was looking forward to sharing it with my children. In my opinion it is over priced for such a short cartoon, but not much that can be done about that. I watched the price for a year, and it was never reasonably priced.

This has always been in my top 3 Christmas shows. It never got as much recognition as others but it is nicely animated, and has catchy songs. If you don't have it, definitely add it to your holiday collection!
