I almost wanted to cry. I'm serious.
This is one of, if not THE best Christmas special in history!
This heartwarming show will fill you with the spirit of Christmas.
Beautiful! Magical! Inspiring! Emotional! Funny! Good hearted!
I cant tell you just how good this special is. The fact that it won an award for best Animated show is just a hint of how great this show is.
And the beautiful song (Cant remember the title) that chimes the meaning of Christmas, "Give, Give, Love" perfectly compliments this Holiday Classic.
It took a long time to come to DVD, but it was worth the wait.
I love this show so much I ordered 3 copies! LOL
I'll probably wear them all out watching it.
This special isnt very long, about 25 minutes to a half an hour, but believe me, it is worth it.
You will be touched and you will be filled with the Christmas spirit when you enjoy this great show.
It's message of love, peace, and giving to those less fortunate are contagious.
Get yourself an early Christmas gift this year. Get this DVD.
And enjoy it all Holiday Season long!
Watching this show is sure to become a Christmas tradition in your home.
If I could have given it ten stars, I would have.
After years of the same old Christmas cartoon's (Rudolph, Frosty, Charlie Browns Christmas), from out of no where comes this Christmas classic destined to become a staple in the yearly Christmas lineup for kids.
Ziggy's Gift, while very short @ 23 minutes, embodies all the important qualities of a good Christmas show. Love, caring, giving, and peace on earth. Tom Wilson manages to pack his message in a playful and sometimes tear jerking way in the time alloted for his 1/2 hour special.
The show really supports the true meaning of Christmas and ends with an orphanage scene that is not to be forgotten!! Ziggy's dog even makes friends with a kitten in the show!!
Go out and get it if you are tired of the same old Christmas specials. Here's where Ziggy's gift stands in my top five shows:
1. Charlie Brown's Christmas
2. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer
3. Ziggy's Gift
4. Frosty the Snowman
5. Santa Claus in Comin to Town
I just got a copy of the DVD. It is wonderful, there are 10 ZiGGY shorts that I have never seen. I kinda knew of their existance but I always thought it was something I made up in my head. Great stuff for ZiGGY fans.
This animated special is actually pretty decent though. The animation is really nice!
There's a thief character that is strangely similiar to the Thief from "The Thief and the Cobbler"--which makes sense since both were directed by Animation legend, Richard Williams. Not an amazing holiday special, but one worth watching if you are an animation lover and into holiday cartoons.
The DVD also has some interesting bonus features including scans of Ziggy comic strip panels and some animated shorts (most of which are cheezy but curious odditities...)
