Storyline

A charming tale about a family of mice living in the wealthy and eccentric Mr. Willowby's house. They decide to start the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree (namely, chopping off the top of the perfect tree Mr. Willowby has brought home). However, while they continually attempt to take their piece of tree, the top of the tree is passed around from humans to animals, each one taking just enought of the tree to make it the perfect size for them. Through this adventure, the mice see how others celebrate Christmas. Written by Max Vaughn

This is a great Christmas Special that deserves to be aired again!
6 December 2004 | by (South Carolina) – See all my reviews

I really wish this special would either be aired again or at least put out on DVD. The performances are wonderful and the music is second to none. I just found out that the script is based on a book from many many years ago by the same name and my family and I will be reading it this Christmas. We sing the "new" lumberjack song (not the Monty Python one) each year when we bring in the Christmas Tree. "We crunch and trudge through ice and snow, we're lumberjacks that's all we know: We cut and saw and chop and hack, the perfect tree we whack whack whack!" (the whack whack part always gets a laugh out of the kids!) I can't wait to see if that part is in the book as well as all the great words and phrases Downey says! If you get a chance to see it, you will be amazed that this one hasn't been aired again. It is every bit as good as Frosty or Charlie Brown and should be a classic! Downey and Leslie Nielson make a great pair in this one.
