Did You Know?


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.

Christmas with Pac-Man
24 December 2013 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

The Pac-Man cartoon was, of course, based off of the mega-popular video game. This Christmas special is spun-off from that. It's about Pac-Man (who sounds like William Bendix) and friends helping Santa after he crashes. Santa comes across as kind of incompetent in this. He wasn't even aware that Pac-Land existed. I wonder how many other places he doesn't know about? Santa's a real mess here. He even breaks down in tears feeling sorry for himself at one point. Anyway, Pac-Man helps him get his butt in gear and delivering presents to all the places he bothered to remember.

The animation is limited, as most television animation was at the time. The humor is mostly kiddy stuff, which is fine as that was the target audience. Now it seems mostly of interest to people who grew up in the 1980s. Still, little kids might like it. Full of bright colors and playful characters. Older kids will probably just wonder who Pac-Man is and if Santa is on medication.
