Honestly the worst animated thing I have ever seen ever
7 December 2011 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

Before I comment on how awful this 'thing' is, I'll just give you a brief rundown of the plot. A boy/human/man creature (that would be George) decides that his Xmas tree is rather bland and decides that THE actual Xmas star will look good perched on the top. So he heads off to space in a rocket, which he just-so-happened to own, and meets a robot and some space pirates. He also meets Santa, who is buzzing through space, with a log cabin on his sleigh, and is able to survive in the vacuum minus a helmet when everyone else needs one.

What? Seriously...what??? The animation of this tripe is atrocious, even by 1985 standards. Not even CITV would have accepted quality this low when desperate to fill up the schedule. But the worst thing about it, by far, is the narrator and voice of George. He speaks with an emotionless Irish/Scandanavian accent that seems like it's read phonetically off cue-cards with absolutely no understanding of the words themselves.

Total garbage. Let it fall into obscurity where it belongs.
