A hollow imitation of the Rankin/Bass classics, 16 December 2008
Author: Matt Mitchell from United States

Our society seems to have lost the capacity to make a decent Christmas special. I don't know where to start. I'm a huge fan of The Year Without a Santa Claus (I even have the action figures) and the models they used in this "sequel" for the miser brothers don't really resemble the originals. They didn't even try with the other characters of Santa, Mrs. Claus, and Mother Nature who all look completely different. The original characters were charming and warm but these ones seemed like lifeless dolls. The story line was nonsensical and the music was simply dreadful. I honestly think the music and lyrics were written in a single evening. The only decent songs in the whole program where the retreads of the miser brother songs from the original. This is the second flop based on The Year Without a Santa Claus so I'm inclined to say leave well enough alone and don't attempt any more. Just because we now have the technology to churn out shows doesn't mean you can skip the story telling and music writing. Too bad because I love the originals and was hoping for some additional originals for my daughter's generation. Guess that was too much to hope for.
