PREP & LANDING -- On Christmas Eve, a high-tech team of elves from an elite unit known as 'Prep & Landing' ensures homes around the world are prepared for Santa's visit. But when two hilarious little elves face unexpected challenges and are pushed to their limits, it'll take a great big effort to save the season. Enjoy a heartwarming holiday classic sure to make everyone's Christmas list! PREP & LANDING: NAUGHTY VS. NICE -- The outrageous yuletide adventures of Christmas elves Lanny and Wayne continue in this totally tinsel adventure that reminds us there's room for everyone on the 'nice' list. Santa's stealthiest little elves must race to recover classified North Pole technology, which has fallen into the hands of a computer-hacking naughty kid, in order to stop Christmas from descending into chaos. Bring the family together for a comical adventure that puts the Ho, Ho, Ho in your holidays!
Changes in the television and animation industries have all but eliminated the half-hour special, once a holiday staple. When Disney's CG "Prep & Landing" debuted in 2009, it scored an immediate hit and won four Emmy Awards. The program turned Santa Claus's annual trip into a combination of a NASA launch and a Mission: Impossible assignment. Fitted out with high tech gear that includes gingerbread-man scanners and candy-cane grappling hooks, teams of elves make sure not a creature is stirring when Santa arrives. With more than 200 years of experience, Wayne has grown jaded and a little cynical: he's been bucking for a promotion to supervisor of the Naughty and Nice List. Instead, he's saddled with a novice partner: Lanny is eager, but he's clearly not the brightest ornament on the tree. When Wayne gets careless and a little boy spots him, the entire elf bureaucracy panics. Of course, Wayne and Lanny save the day, ensuring everyone has a joyous Christmas. Disney brought the "Prep & Landing" characters back two years later in "Naughty vs. Nice." A child on the Naughty List has gotten ahold of an elf's fruitcake transmitter and is attempting to hack into Santa's database. Wayne and Lanny accept the mission to recapture the transmitter, joined by Wayne's roisterous younger brother Noel. Both Wayne and the would-be hacker must resolve aching sibling rivalries before Christmas can be merry. The two specials have a more lavish look than most television animation, with richly detailed settings. The filmmakers clearly have fun giving new meanings to such holiday references as "It's jingle time!" and "The Partridge is in the Pear Tree." The Totally Tinsel Collection comes loaded with extras, the most entertaining of which is the "Stocking Stuffer" mini-adventure "Secret Santa." Wayne and Lanny have joined Rudolph, Charlie Brown, and the Grinch as holiday standard-bearers. (Rated G: cartoon violence) --Charles Solomon

This sequel, while not as surprising as the original since we had already been introduced to the main character, was indeed as good as the first one! We enjoyed the heck out of it and started looking to buy both. When we found this twin pack, we bought it as it was exactly what we were looking for.
The DVD is every bit as good and the quality is stellar. Now, we can watch it each Christmas and not have to worry if we will be home when it airs or even if it will be aired.
I would highly recommend this collection if you love animated Christmas Specials.
Wonderfully fun and well done stories that I think are now added to those timeless winter holiday shows
that can be enjoyed every year, perhaps anytime. And I think, maybe like most people, I had about given
up on the filmmakers to produce anything this fantastic, this fun, with good lessons thrown in, that will
probably endure for many more years. Perhaps they will do more stories like these now that we see
good creativity is still out there without so much of the rude humor that isn't necessary.
Happy with purchase. Recommend. Thanks.
The character designs, animation, music and voice work is right on the mark. The story is face paced, heartfelt and most of all actually FUNNY! And yes, you will want to watch this every year along with Frosty, Rudolf and the rest. I'm not a Pixar/Disney fanboy... Some of their stuff make work for kids but everything doesn't necessarily resonate with adults. Everyone that likes animated Christmas tales... man, woman or child, will find something to love about the Prep & Landing specials.
Some jokes may be over the heads of little ones, but there is absolutely nothing inappropriate for young viewers. Just a lot of fun.
The first movie is "Prep and Landing" and is the one that's on TV every Christmastime. Many movies, seeing it as a special once a year would be fine, but we really do watch this over and over. I like the creative and hilarious ways these two elves prepare the way for Santa to make the night special for one boy. It is 23 minutes.
The second movie is "Naughty vs. Nice" and brings in one of the original elves from "Prep and Landing" to pair up with his brother who is a naughty-list elf. They are total opposites. They find out their real task is about how important family is, which is exactly what they needed as well. It is 23 minutes.
Priced just under what full length movies are, but I truly believe they are movies you will watch over and over.
