We got this DVD for our daughter because, like SO many kids out there, she loves Elmo. It was cute and a good lesson for kids about why Christmas can only come once a year (among many other reasons) but I guess something about the whole way it was presented just bugged me. Not a great fan of this one.
The Easter bunny sounds like he has TB and I know that the man who plays him was a 90s actor, but casting should have called for someone who didn't seem so distasteful for the part.
Elmo, as always, was adorable and charming with his childlike naivety.
I am not sure if I can fully explain what I don't like about this one. But we didn't hate it so much as we watched it twice.
I personally thought the movie was cute and has a great Christmas message, so I do think it's a great dvd. However I wouldn't purchase again for someone my child's age (13 months). He just didn't seem interested. I do know he will appreciate it more when he gets a little older though, so I will be keeping it!
As the special opens, some of the Muppets and Maya Angelou, are openning Christmas when Telly decides that he wants to have Christmas every day, which promptes Maya ask Telly, if Elmo ever told him about the time, he save Christmas, and then almost lost it again, so she tells them the tale. Now on Sesame Street, Elmo has gotten some Christmas cookies from Mr. Handford (David Langston Smyrl) and is going home to leave them out there, but the Cookie Monster wants to eat a few of the cookies, to help ligten the load, but Elmo (voice of Kevin Flash) doesn't let him, and he brings the cookies home, and leaves the cookies by the fire, and settles in to watch It's a Wonderful Life on TV, but does fall asleep in front of the TV that is blacked out and all you can see if flash. But wakes up when Santa (Charles Durning) gets stuck inside his chinmony, and Elmo pulls him out, and saves Christmas for girls and boys all over the world, or at least the ones that celbrate Christmas. And when Santa goes to open his bag, a young reindeer in trainning named Lightning is in his bag, and is in trouble with Santa, and he gets grounded, and is ordered by Santa before to sit in the back of the slay, and to be quiet, but before he leaves Santa gives Elmo an extra speical Chirstmas gift, and his chocies are a bear or a magical snowgolbe that grants wishes, and Elmo takes the snowglobe, and his first wish, which turns out to be for a glass of water. He couldn't just get up, and get himself a glass of water, without wasting a wish.
So the next morning comes, and Elmo is getting presents from Gordon, and his family, and from Carlo, and a hug from Rosita, and then the idea for his 2nd wish, and that is Christmas Every day. While the elves are planning their vacation, all of a sudden the toy machine starts up and again, and the elves report to Santa, and Santa tells himn that he gaves wishes to Elmo on Sesame Strreet, and has to go to see him, and all the reindeer are sleeping form having to work hard all night long, remember it is Christmas Day. And his only choice of a reindeer to take is Lighting. So they hatch him up on a slay, so back on Sesame Street the gang is at Hooper's store, watching It's a Wonderful Life, when a breaking news store breaks in, coverage gets taken to Kermit T. Frog, where he reports that it is Christmas again, and then they have to start planning for Christmas every day, so they go out to do more shopping, and then Elmo meets up with Santa, and gives him the speech about having Christmas every day, and signs him a song. And then gives him the chance to go in the future, to see what Christmas would look like next spring, when it is warm, annd the summer when it is hot, and then next winter, when it really is Christmas, so Elmo gets the chance to see if he really likes the idea of Christmas every day, and along the way he sees Big Bird (voice of Caroll Spinney) that is missing his best frerind Snuffy who is in Cincinnati, visiting his granny for Christmas, and he spends them time writing postcards to Snuffy telling him how much he misses him, when he knows that it is still Christmas, and that the mail doesn't get picked up or delievered on Christmas. Harvey Fierstein has a cameo, as the Easter Bunny. The songs are It's Christmas Again, Every Day Can't be Christmas, Give Your Freind an Easter Egg for Christmas, All I want for Christmas is You, and Keep Christmas with you (all through the year). And this special will explain to kids whether they like it or not, why Christmas is best kept one day a year.
