Inspired me as a young adult.
19 September 1999 | by See all my reviews

This movie impressed me so much as a young college student with its message of selfless concern for others. His (Stubby's) only concern was for the happiness and welfare of his friends in the bunkhouse, a family of total strangers, and the woman he never got to meet. Not once did he think of himself, nor express sorrow or regret at missing his long-awaited date with the woman of his dreams. Indeed, his last thought at the dance was for his crusty old bunkmate with a sweet tooth. This is such an outstanding example of the spirit of Christmas in an everyday world that it boggles my mind that it CANNOT be found on the video shelves, for sale OR rent. I've searched for years and scoured the TV Christmas specials with no success. Please, whoever has the power to control such things, MAKE IT AVAILABLE!!!
