Christmas Cracker was pretty entertaining for an Oscar-nominated animated short
15 December 2008 | by (Baton Rouge, La.) – See all my reviews

This Oscar-nominated animation short is comprised of three segments linked by a court jester dancing that looks like still photos being flipped. First one has a couple of kids made of cut-up construction paper dancing a jig to "Jingle Bells" that reminds me of how the "South Park" television series have made that look a little fashionable today. Good first segment. Second one has these photo flips of toys racing around. Among them: a clown, some cars, some animals, etc. Pretty entertaining though it's just mainly just toys moving at high speed, nothing else. Last drawn segment has a man looking for what to put on top of his tree. He doesn't get satisfaction until he attempts to get a star from space which he uses his rocket module for. I was amused at the results of this one and was glad this was the last segment as it was the best one. So for all that, I highly recommend Christmas Cracker.
