Trivia

This was originally intended by MGM to be a theatrical release for 1996, but had been delayed because of the commercial failure of All Dogs Go to Heaven 2 (1996), and eventually released straight to video in 1997. See more »

A poorly made, muddled and needlessly mean Disney knock-off.
26 February 1999 | by (Portland, Oregon, USA) – See all my reviews

This mean-spiritied telling of a Christmas classic (!) is just plain bad movie-making--poor "acting," a confused and confusing plot, florid animation art, and a pack of goblin characters (what classic is this?) that will scare many a small child. Held to the Disney standard, this is a very poor stab at making movie magic.
