PVR'd this one for the kids...
Same shaiite animation as Rudolph (actually, there's a whole STRING of these films)...and has...ummmm, "less charming" characters.
Includes a GROOVY hip-young Santa who gets the hots for a bleach-white school teacher.
And the bad guy in this one is the WINTER WARLOCK - wasn't he the one who ganked me in Northrend??
And, of course, the pseudo-palimdronic Burgermeister Meisterburger...modelled loosely on Derek in leiderhossen...
Dig those threads Groovin'Santa (or should I call you GS?)...
Santa gains aggro.
I've always enjoyed these, especially the nostalgia of the stop-motion animation with wooden figurines.
This is probably my least fave though.
Was there any connection between Burgermeister Meisterburger and Moribund the Burgermeister?
"I WILL find out..."
This was hands down the least favorite for the X-Mas specials (IMO)
