Editorial Reviews

Ziggy, the comic icon, comes to life for the first time in this Emmy Award winning, animated feature film packed with all the love and good cheer of the Holiday Season!

In this classic Christmas adventure, Ziggy and his faithful dog Fuzz take a job as a street Santa to raise money for the poor. Surrounded by crooked Santas, sneaky thieves and suspicious cops, Ziggy remains honest and kind. His selfless giving to others makes us smile and feel again the warmth and happiness of true Holiday Spirit.

Created and written by Emmy winning Ziggy Cartoonist, Tom Wilson with animation from award winning Master Animators Richard Williams (Who Framed Roger Rabbit), Eric Goldberg (Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast) and Tom Sito (The Lion King, Shrek) and music and lyrics written by Grammy winning composer Harry Nilsson, Ziggy's Gift is a genuinely heart-warming Holiday Special - a gift to be treasured and enjoyed year after year. approx. 24 mins. col.

I was so filled with joy and excitement when I saw that ZIGGY's GIFT was available on DVD!

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.

Ziggy's Gift was a strange surprise to me when released in in 1982.

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

Enjoy!

Gil

This is probably the BEST Christmas cartoon special of all time. I've been waiting a long time for this to come out on dvd. I have a copy of this program on a Betamax (remember those things) tape that I recorded off of HBO probably 20+ years ago. Buy multiple copies and give them away for Christmas!!! Ho! Ho! Ho!!!

Ziggy's gift is a really cute video set at Christmas time. The story is about Ziggy, a chubby little guy, and all the mishaps that he goes through when he is just trying to collect money for the poor at Christmas time.

Ziggy, known in this short feature as "the little guy" goes innocently about his business just doing what he always does, which when one looks at it in the proper light, is a blessing to all. Ziggy shows us all that the simple things, being honest, living with love and charity in your heart and mind, and keeping busy by serving others instead of yourself is the gift that keeps on giving. Ziggy's Gift does all this while keeping all ages laughing at the antics that surround him. I first viewed this short in the 80's when my children were small, and to this day, we still call our Thanksgiving bird a Torekey. Watch and you'll see what I mean. It will become a family favorite.

When our kids were growing up this was their favorite Christmas show. We recorded it from TV and they wore the video tape out. We were delighted to find Ziggy's Gift on DVD for our 11 grandchildren this Christmas. It has a great message, teaching the values of giving and love. The DVD picture was so clear and beautifully redone. We aren't sure who was more pleased; our grandchildren or their parents! Thanks so much.

ZiGGY's gift is the greatest christmas special. I have been waiting for years this to come out on dvd.

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.

I'm not really a fan of the Ziggy comic strip but I think it's cute from time to time.

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...)
