Did You Know?

Quotes

Herb: Besides, Rex, maybe "wassail" is an old word that means "waffle". After all, what can be more Christmassy than a thick stack of syrup-drenched waffles?
Rex: As usual, Herb, there you go letting history take a back seat to your stomach.

Waffle? No. Waddle? No. Well, I know it's not "wassail"....
23 September 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is, I believe, the greatest TV Christmas special of all time!

Will Vinton's signature stop-motion animation is in peak form here, with astonishingly well-realized characters, seamless frame-by-frame movement, and fantastically designed sets. Also, whoever wrote this obviously knew exactly what they were doing because the jokes are terrific and the songs are presented in an oddly logical order.

And, of course, the dinosaur hosts are amazing, especially the food-minded Herb, who has a constant quest to discover both the ultimate Christmas snack food and the actual lyrics to "Here We Come A-Wassailing."

The best scene is the "Angels We Have Heard on High" sequence, featuring a ballet performed by walruses De Margo Pontoon and Sir Rudolph Nerves-on-Edge. If you go a holiday season without watching this... well, what the heck *are* you watching?!
