This episode is very unique and in a way different than the others.
It is Christmas Eve and Fu is our story teller as he explains about 2 magical creatures who are not having a good holiday. Those 2 creatures would be Jake Long The American Dragon who has dealt with his family's imbecilic Christmas traditions for too long and has finally snapped, and a baby sasquatch who has been separated from it's family. With the help of Trixie, who is depressed because her father will not be home for Christmas and a very festive Spud, Jake goes out to find the baby, but he has some competition: Rotwood who wants to prove that magical creatures exist and 88 and 89 who were looking for a Christmas present for the Huntsman when they heard about the sasquatch. At least they realize the true spirit of the holidays.
As I've said, this is a unique episode. We finally see Trixie getting emotional and Fu hurling up Egg-Nog was great. Even the Huntsboys had some good lines. Although Fu being a minstrel felt a little weird and do the Huntsboys have anything to wear other than those uniforms?
In spite of the fact that Christmas trees that are planted in
Rockefeller Center come long before Christmas Eve, some lumberjacks
decide to chop down what they think is the perfect tree. What they
don't realize is this tree is the nest of a baby Sasquatch, and his
parents and the rest of their tribe are understandably furious.
Meanwhile, Jake is being dragged into the Long Family's Christmas
traditions, which he thinks are lame. When Grandpa informs him of the
threat of the Sasquatch tribe rampaging through NYC, Jake thinks
thwarting this rampage may be an easy way out. Unfortunately, three
other people start looking for this baby bigfoot -- Professor Rotwood
and two of the Huntsclan's flunkie apprentices #88 & #89. And of
course, since they're part of the Huntsclan, their plan for the baby
isn't so noble, and now he, Spud and Trixie have to perform three good
deeds. And just when you thought Trixie's Dad was going to go the way
of Norm Peterson's wife from "Cheers," the AmDrag does a good deed for
I'll admit I remember a similar episode of "Tiny Toon Adventures" involving the rescue of a baby whale from an evil cosmetics maven. But I'm not going to use this as an excuse to bash this tale. In fact, I'm not going to bash it at all, because I think it was terrific, right down to Fu Dog's Sam the Snowman imitation, and his nausea over the sappiness of the whole story. If Disney decided to release a second compilation of holiday-related episodes, like they did with "Even Stevens," "Lizzie McGuire," "Kim Possible," "That's So Raven," "Phil of the Future" and "The Suite Life of Zack & Cody," they should make this episode part of the DVD, along with some of the other Christmas & Holiday episodes of Disney Channel series they missed.
