Merry Christmas from Bob the Builder! Bob's can-do crew is busy decorating for the holidays and building a concert stage for rock starts Lennie and the Lazers. And guess who's coming home for Christmas! Bob's twin brother, Tom - all the way from the Arctic Circle! Unfortunately, things don't go as planned. Spud is up to his usual pranks, Lennie can't sing, and Bob forgot his Santa costume. And it seems Tom won't be home after all. Much to Bob's surprise, Elton John and a mysterious Santa make it a special Christmas to remember!

So.... we liked it, but thought it was quite a bit different from the usual fix-everything-format. My son still asks to watch this one, but more often asks to watch other "Bob movies".
Yes, it is longer (obviously) and more complex than the Bob TV series, and some children may get bored with it. And Elton John fans, be warned, his character does not have a very big role.
My children are five and nine and they BOTH enjoy it every night!
We have owned it for over a month!
Despite the misleading product description, the version sold here is the U.S. dubbed one with William Dufris as Bob and Lorelei King as Wendy. Although Kate Harbour is retained for Dizzy, but the other machines are dubbed with the predictable American drawls.
Whereas the British Bob contains multiple subtle nods to the parents watching, such as Lenny Lazenby's description of how they found America, or the Mayor's observations of Noddy Holder, the U.S. version bungles these nuances with sloppy script editing.
Elton John's voice remains unmodified thankfully.
This heartwarming story has Bob's twin brother, Tom, trying to make it home for Christmas--clear from the the Arctic Circle! Will he make it in time?
A Christmas to Remember has a heartwarming--and well crafted--plot, and features a guest appearance by Elton John!
I admit--I tear up when I see the baby videos showing Tom and Bob playing as kids...as well as Bob's disappointment when he hears that Tom missed his boat. It's a very heartwarming tale with some very funny moments!
Of course, Wendy, Spud, and the rest of the can-do crew make appearances in this story--as do "Lennie and the Lazers"!
At around 50 minutes, this engaging DVD will delight fans of Bob the Builder, as well as small children. And, it's a DVD that a parent can sit through comfortably without being bored to death or driven insane by mindless drivel or grating singing--which is a great plus!
