Storyline

When Louie Anderson was a kid, he lived with 10 siblings and a loud-mouthed father. Now Christmas was rolling around and everyone but Dad was in the spirit. They go out and buy a Christmas tree - for $35. Then Dad literally throws lights on the house. Mom notices elderly neighbor Mrs. Stillman, who's widowed and all alone, so Mom talks Dad into decorating her house for her while Mom takes her out. Dad has Louie help him. He's hounded by cops and neighborhood kids who take him for a burglar, but soon they help out as well. Mrs. Stillman loves the surprise, and so when January comes around, guess who Dad nominates to help him take down the decorations. Written by Dylan Self <robocoptng986127@aol.com>

Worth watching
12 December 2012 | by (The Underverse) – See all my reviews

I was fully prepared to pay little attention to this Xmas special, but it succeeds in doing what most animated specials fail to do - it actually creates a nice, Xmasy atmosphere.

Based loosely on the childhood experiences of rotund comedian Louie Anderson it is sort of a cross between A Christmas Story and a scene from Christmas Vacation. Set in the late 50s/early 60s Louie's curmudgeon dad grudgingly goes along with annual traditions and is eventually encouraged to decorate the house of a lonely old lady with Xmas lights. As Clark Griswold once learned, it's not so easy.

It's funny, and cosy, and better than most Xmas specials I've been watching recently.
