Two hosting prehistoric dinosaurs guide you along a typical small town's Christmas choral celebration. There's just one catch, the entire town population is made out of clay! Special Guest Stars: The California Raisins!
Opus the Penguin, amoung his other problems, always felt inadequate by his being "aerodynamicly impaired". Together, with Bill the Cat he tries doggedly to overcome that weakness, all without success. It is only on Christmas Eve that Opus learns what worth his natural abilities are. Written by

The cross-dressing cockroach is voiced by an uncredited Dustin Hoffman. One of Hoffman's most famous films was 'Tootsie' in which he played a cross dresser. See more »
The cockpit window in the Lost Horizon dream doesn't match the cockpit window that's inside Opus's cockpit. See more »
Why don't penguins have wings that work?
[holding out his hand]
This, you call this a wing? This is a bad joke, this is built in obsolescence, I'm an insult, I might as well be a dung beetle or a fly infested, worm infused, molded mildewed scrap of rotten banana!... or a network executive.

After the credits, we see Truffles yelling up at Opus "Don't get cocky up there!" before Opus' prothstetic buttocks falls on him. See more »
When you're tired of the same hum-drum holiday special.
I remembered when I was seven, I picked out a video at the rental store that was different and funny...When I was halfway through the tape, I was rolling on the floor laughing my butt off...It was funny because it featured a hero with a dream (Opus), which was ironic that he wishes to fly because he is a penguin.
Anyway...This movie is one of the greatest of off-beat holiday specials...You'll have to see for yourself...
