Rockin' 70s Christmas aliens for kids!
29 December 2005 | by (Seattle, USA) – See all my reviews

In the early 80s at my elementary school we watched this every year during the Christmas season (on a projector!). I've always remembered it fondly but the details obviously became faded over time.

I remember the story was about how a kid with a goose for a pet is visited by 3 floating aliens who want to know the meaning of Christmas. As the boy tries to explain things to the aliens he discovers the magic of Christmas for himself. At the end the aliens belt out some crazy electro-Christmas music on their alien instruments for the whole town and then blast off into space, leaving the image of a Xmas tree in their wake with their shining ship acting as the crowning star.

After college I started to get nostalgic about my childhood and wanted to see this again however I had no idea what it was called and internet searches were pretty useless. I'm very excited (and also relieved!) to finally track down the details of this show.

They just don't make'em like they used to. I cant wait to see it again!
