Okay for the kids, I guess
13 December 2012 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

This seems like quite an obscure Xmas special, yet it appears to have a bit of a cult following. I'm not into Dr. Seuss-style rhyming myself, but it was bear-able. Man, I am so witty.

It features a family of country bears who head out into the forest on Xmas Eve to find the perfect Xmas tree. The problem is the very tree trunk is home to a skunk, and other forest animals. So they keep looking, and singing. Tree no. 2 is so regal it's home to an eagle. Yeah, I'm beginning to see where this is going.

The animation is nothing special, but the backgrounds are occasionally nice, and it succeeds in creating a nice, snowy atmosphere. I can't imagine I'll be watching this twice though.
