My father and I have watched claymation christmas every christmas morning ever since it first came out in '87. Having to watch it on an old vhs that was all fuzzy, now to find out it's on a dvd I've found the perfect gift to give to my dad this holiday season. I highly recommend this to everyone of all ages. I'm 21 myself, and my father in his 50's, we both love this show! And now I get to see 2 others I've never seen before.

I really enjoy Claymation Christmas. With that said, I never remembered seeing the Halloween and Easter programs, and I wish that I had never watched them on this DVD. They're nothing like the Christmas program.

Even if I had enjoyed all three programs, I don't think the price should be more than $10 for this product. The quality is terrible because nothing was remastered, and the running time of all shows is only about an hour. I don't know how they came up with the price on this one.

Regardless, I don't know of any other legal way to acquire this program unless you're able to buy a used copy, and I can't say that I expected really great quality. So, if you're a fan, try to get it used. If you can't get it used, $20 won't usually break the bank, but I don't know if I'd buy it at that price again.

Ever since I've been collecting DVD's, I've been doing my best to find old holiday classics that take me back to when I was a kid and waiting all year for them to come on the air. This is one of them, and I have been looking forward to this for ages. From the Carol of the Bells to the California Raisins doing Rudolph, it is a very creative look at various christmas songs all done in claymation! As I don't know what is on the DVD yet, I can't rate it for that, but I will be picknig this up no matter what!

I remember every year a week before christmas my mother and I sitting down to dinner EVERY night and watching the Claymations Christmas. It later became a complete family tradition. When I moved out on my own I searched everywhere for this DVD so that I can share it with my own little ones now. This should definently be on EVERYONES family shelf. And i know that, for years to come, it will always be a traditon in my house.

When I was a kid (not that long ago--I'm 25), my brother and my cousins and I would watch it every year for Christmas. We'd even watch it before Christmas! It was a fun tradition, until the VHS tape we had of it finally bit the dust. I'm so excited to finally see it on DVD! My favorite bit is Carol of the Bells...there's always an odd one in the bunch! This is definitely a DVD to add to the classic favorites in my video library.

Since the tv release of the Claymation christmas special, I loved it when it came on every year. I would set my schedule to it. Now I have introduced it to my 3 year old and it's as if the California Raisins were new and popular again. The halloween special and the christmas special are both good. The easter special, I had never seen before I purchased the DVD. That was ok. But the Christmas special, which I consider the best of the 3, is worth the purchase alone. Share it with your kids, they should love it as mine did.

Claymation Christmas is worthy to join the pantheon of holiday entertainment classics! From a creative standpoint, it is nearly peerless in its ability to generate WOW! moments, such is the level of creative brilliance behind the presentation of Claymation Christmas' various vignettes. And, if one has an appreciation for the dedication and demands in producing stop action animation, then certainly CC can be appreciated on that level, as well. Will Vinton & Co., the creative masterminds behind Claymation Christmas, have indeed produced and bequeathed to us a Treasure!
Not to be missed, Oh fans of Holiday fare. Now get thee a copy and marvel at the mastery that is Claymation Christmas!

The Claymation Christmas Celebration is a wonderful tradition to add to your Christmas-watching collection. I was more than excited to see that I can toss that old fuzzy, 16-year-old VHS recording & buy the DVD! The California Raisins are so much fun, but the Carol of the Bells is still my favorite clip. Joy is a very classic clip!
However, the Comedy of Horrors is not particularly a classic Halloween special (it goes too fast & doesn't add up much). The Easter special is nice.
The DVD functions can be a little confusing trying to get to the Comentary, but it is pretty simple otherwise.

I got this video because I had grown up with a copy we recorded from the television and I had a small insterest in the Halloween and Easter celebrations. The Christmas celebration is wonderful (though, when it cuts to commercial, it seems odd there are no commericals). The Halloween and Easter celebrations are awful. The later two episodes centers on a greedy, selfish, manipulative, and down-right criminal pig with a New York accent. In the Easter Celebration, this pig kidnaps the Easter Bunny after he kidnapped the original. In the Halloween celebration, he tries to gain power by controlling Frankenstein's monster. I was hoping these two stories would be more like the Christmas celebration, but they bare little to no resemblance. Still, they are mildly amusing and they may run more along your taste than mine.
