Another Christmas TV special Straight from my Childhood
22 December 2015 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Here is another animated Christmas TV special straight from my childhood. I had barely remember seeing it as a kid, until I saw it on YouTube. Anyway, this special is about six "horribly ugly; rougish and rascally; tricky and troublesome" trolls who snuck into Santa's village dressed like elves, to stop Christmas from coming.

With the vocal talents of Roger Miller (Disney's Robin Hood and Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey) and Hans Conried (Disney's Peter Pan); the animation from Atkinson Film-Arts known for the four "Raccoons" TV specials are the reasons I love this holiday classic. So that is all I have to say.
