Twas the Night Before Christmas: Deluxe Edition (Blu-ray)

For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas "a fraudulent myth!" The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses "and let up a little on the wonder why." How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa's jolly return to Junctionville -- and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore's poem. Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel are featured voices. Approx. 23 minutes. Year: 1974

I just want lovers of this show to know that it did indeed get released on DVD...I have been waiting for a long time and never would have known had I not come across it by chance...It is not out on DVD by itself, rather, it is on the DVD "Frosty's Winter Wonderland" (The Rankin Bass Version If you want this DVD, check it out and pick it up, it will not let you down...It is the same version as we all know and love

UPDATE - October 15th 2011
Wow, just looking back at this comment I made 7 years ago...time flies. Back then, Blu Ray was not even a thought, however I just wanted to update this blurb here by saying this has now been exclusively released on Blu Ray for anyone who does not know and might be interested.

My fiance and I knew we were meant for each other when we discovered that this Christmas special was a favorite for both of us! I've loved it since I was a kid watching it on TV, and I wish they'd play it more now. It has lovely, catchy songs and a timeless message that's not overly sappy. The story is about a young mouse, Oliver, who doesn't believe in Santa and writes a letter to the editor of his local newspaper saying just that. Santa reads it and gets angry, sending back the letters of all the town's children and refusing to go there at Christmas. The young mouse soon learns the devastating effect of his disbelief when he realizes how much Santa's visit means to them all.

I knew of this movie from when I was young, when it was occasionally aired before Christmas. The characters, including a family of sweet mice, are adorable. The story is short but heartwarming, and the songs will leave you singing them to yourself long after the holidays. Everything about this cartoon fits together extremely well, and children of all ages will be delighted by it. This video is hard to find in stores, so do yourself a favor and order it!

(This is a review of the Blu-ray.) While it is nice to see this overlooked show get the Blu-ray treatment don't expect a remastered transfer. While the picture is clear and crisp they did not clean up the print that was used. Lots of dust and scratches are present throughout. Also the audio is center channel only on surround sound.

Having said that, you don't really need surround sound and perfect picture to enjoy the show. We aren't dealing with an HD cineplex blockbuster here. It is a pleasant little Christmas special. It has some touching and funny moments, a few memorable songs, and a nice atmosphere thanks to the voice of Joel Grey. You could quibble a little with the story (Why is Santa prone to holding grudges and being petty in some of these Rankin and Bass stories?)

Anyway, $13 is a little steep for what you get, but you cannot complain too much here.

As a child I used to scan the tv guide every Sunday in December looking for the Christmas specials. I had my favorites, and this was one of them. Its artwork, and the artwork of all of the Rankin/Bass specials, is superb. The songs stay in your heads (and hearts) forever. I still sing along like I did almost 30 years ago when I first learned the words "Christmas time is calling Santa, Santa"...And I especially loved it this past Christmas when my then 16 month old's attention was captured by this cartoon, especially when the music played. I look forward to many more viewings with my son (and his soon to be born sister), and will gladly use them as an excuse to watch a childs show that I consider a classic and fondly remember from simpler times - CHILDHOOD!!!

I was glad to find this because I watched it when I was little and hadn't seen it in years. I wasn't sure it was going to be the same thing because I only had a vague memory of the storyline. Long story short it is the same story. A mouse named Albert and a few of his friends write a letter calling Santa Claus a fraudulent myth which angers him and he returns every-ones letters to him unopened. A clockmaker hoping to show Santa Claus that they really do love him and believe in him makes a clock that will play a special song for him to hear at the stroke of midnight. Santa Claus does come but first a miracle has to happen because Albert accidently breaks the clock when he climbs inside to see how it works insuring that Santa Claus may not be coming. This is a very good story and a very good show. One review complained about the lack of extras the disc has. Obviously she didn't have the Blu-ray because that gives you the DVD and what little extras are on that plus the movie on Blu-ray with at least one other extra that I haven't watched yet. Anyway like I said this is a good story and a good show. You should get it because youll regret it if you don't. Merry Christmas.

I used to watch "Twas the Night Before Christmas" every year when I was little. I never missed it. Suddenly it stopped coming on, and I was disappointed. I couldn't believe that they took it off the air. A few years ago I was lucky when I heard it was going to be on Fox Family. I decided to record it off the television, but missed the first part of the show. I wanted the whole special and went to see if I could find it on the internet(you can't find it in stores). I found it ... and could not believe it. This special shows some of the many meanings of Christmas. It showed that there are miracles on earth and that if you really believe and hope in something, then those miracles can happen. If you don't have this video, then I suggest you add it to your collection.
