A Hanna/Barbera Christmas TV special my family and I love
Here is a Hanna/Barbera Christmas TV special my family and I love; we still do. But of course my parents refer to the title as "Timmy's Letter."
The special is set in a town/era almost like in Disney's Lady and the Tramp, and it was Christmas Eve. In one house, a little boy named Timmy (voiced by Andy Panda's voice actor Walter Tetley) was read a Christmas story and tucked into bed. The resident mouse Gumdrop (voice by animation regular Daws Butler), while admiring the house all decorated for Christmas, noticed Timmy's letter to Santa on the floor. The letter must have fallen off the table and never got mailed. So he and the family dog Gobber (voiced by Paul Winchell) set outside to deliver the letter to Santa and save Christmas for Timmy.
I was very fortunate (and so is my family) to find it on TV and taped it because they don't show anymore. So all I can say is I love this special from beginning to end. And I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love this cartoon. I also love the songs in the special; three of them were replayed in later Hanna/Barbera Christmas programs.
