Storyline

On Christmas Eve Day, Fred finally agrees to play Santa Claus for a benefit event. However, those plans have to be put on hold that night when the real Santa Claus sprains his ankle falling off Fred's roof. With no other option, Santa asks Fred and Barney to continue his delivery itinerary for him and they agree to the task. Throughout that night, the pair find the job unusually difficult, but Santa and his support crew are ready to help. Written by Kenneth Chisholm (kchishol@rogers.com)

It is true that it isn't as good as the classic TV show, which is a wonderful childhood favourite, but A Flinstone Christmas was pretty good. The voice cast do a great job, even those who replaced the original voice actor(ie. Harry Corden replacing Alan Reed) bear strong resemblance to the original voice actors. I loved Mel Blanc as Barney, Blanc is without a doubt one of the best voice actors ever, and perfectly captured Barney's zaniness and goofiness. Jean Vyder Pyl is still great as Wilma, and Gay Autterson also does a good job as Betty, though not quite as good as Bea Benaderet. The character characterisation isn't as strong as it is in the TV show however.

That said, the animation is beautiful and stays true to the style in the TV show. I especially loved the image of Santa's sleigh pulled by the eight reindeer. And I loved the music, and contrary to another reviewer I liked the song Wilma sang to cheer up Pebbles. I liked the story too, about Santa(well voiced by Hal Smith) having an accident at Fred's house and Fred and Barney have to continue his run. All in all, I liked it, it isn't as good as the show, but it is nice seasonal fun. 8/10 Bethany Cox
