Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas specials but I really disliked this one. This did have the ingredients for it to be at least charming, but so much let it down that my head was throbbing from hitting the wall countless times. The animation is very shoddy especially in the character designs, while the music is mostly awful. The incidental music is okay, but the songs were what irked me. Not only are the melodies forgettable and the lyrics trite, some of them don't fit with the story at all. The story is a great idea but badly told, and not helped by the poor pacing and terrible dialogue. Very few of the characters are likable either, and the voice acting ranges to decent to sub-par. So all in all, this was really quite bad, at least for me. 1/10 Bethany Cox
