Storyline

Narrated by a partridge, this charming animated tale explains the lengthy and confusing Christmas carol of the same name. The bold and brave Sir Carolboomer loves the melancholy Princess Silverbell. In order to win her heart he steals what he thinks is her Christmas list but what turns out to be the answers to the King's crossword puzzle. He mistakingly enlists his servant Hollyberry to find every item on her bizarre list, including a partridge in a pear tree, eight maids a milking, four calling birds...you get the basic idea. After twelve days of this gift giving, the Princess falls in love not with Carolboomer, but with the one who actually did the work, the noble Hollyberry. Written by Bondorf Smelman

I remember this!
23 September 2004 | by (In front of a computer) – See all my reviews

I remember watching this special when it was on! All the characters were anthropomorphic bears. I remember they did one of the verses for the title song in the style of Michael Jackson. I remember thinking at the time that it was freaking hilarious! That's about all I remember about it, though. I don't know why they never showed it again. Maybe it's on VHS somewhere or maybe they've shown it on some cable network. But I haven't seen it since it was first on. If any network executives are reading this (and I doubt they are), you should dig this special up and show it again this holiday season. I guarantee it would be much better than the normal sentimental, sap-drenched, "Hallmark Hall of Fame"-type Christmas drivel you're probably planning to show. We need more Christmas specials like this. Nobody wants to see a "Survivor" Christmas, or "A Very Will & Grace Christmas" or other such nonsense.

Anyway, if you're flipping through the channels this Holiday Season and you see that this special is on, you should watch it. Sure, it's no "Charlie Brown Christmas", but hey, what is?
