Rather Pointless

'Twas the day before Christmas and all through the yard the Cat in the Hat (Martin Short) and his guests partied hard. When the party was over, and the guests all departed one poor baby reindeer was left broken-hearted!

My first instinct is to give this a 3 or 4 because it just really is not all that entertaining, the songs are alright but forgettable, and Martin Short is a fairly annoying voice to play the Cat. This will not become a regular Christmas special in my home, and probably not anywhere else.

So why the higher rating of 5? Simply because I recently saw "The Legend of Frosty the Snowman" with Burt Reynolds, and that was far worse. In fact, it may be the worst Christmas special ever made. So, in comparison, this one comes off looking not half bad. Nothing great, but not the tragic mess that "Frosty" is.
