Clyde: Forget it Pac-Man! Your clever talk ain't going to get you out of this mess!
Pac-Man: Oh wait, you don't understand. I'm not doing this for me. Just think of the millions of deserving children around the world who won't get their Christmas presents. If you open your mouths instead of your hearts.

Pac-Man knows if you've been bad or good
19 December 2010 | by (The Penumbra) – See all my reviews

I never thought I'd be reviewing a Pac-Man Xmas Special. Up until a few days ago I didn't even know that there was a Pac-Man TV show.

This cartoon has Pac-Man, Ms Pac-Man and Pac-Baby enjoying the snow and winter season before Santa Claus ends up crash-landing in PacLand. Having never heard of PacLand the rounded Pac-People have never heard of Santa or Xmas either. The Pac-People help Santa on his way and end up experiencing their first ever Xmas in return.

So what do you know...it's another one of those "Xmas is all about..." cartoons. But this time it's quite enjoyable and has nice wintry animation. It won't be a fondly-remembered special like Charlie Brown or Garfield's Xmas cartoons, but still worth watching.
