Opus the Penguin, amoung his other problems, always felt inadequate by his being "aerodynamicly impaired". Together, with Bill the Cat he tries doggedly to overcome that weakness, all without success. It is only on Christmas Eve that Opus learns what worth his natural abilities are.Written by

During the production of Hook (1991), Executive Producer Steven Spielberg decided to utilize Robin Williams (The Kiwi) and Dustin Hoffman (The Cockroach) to record (in what little time he had) their voice-over work in a small studio. This is why both A-list stars were available for this animated special. It is also the reason why the quality of their voice recordings isn't as clear as the rest of the cast. See more »
The cockpit window in the Lost Horizon dream doesn't match the cockpit window that's inside Opus's cockpit. See more »

After the credits, we see Truffles yelling up at Opus "Don't get cocky up there!" before Opus' prothstetic buttocks falls on him. See more »
When you're tired of the same hum-drum holiday special.
I remembered when I was seven, I picked out a video at the rental store that was different and funny...When I was halfway through the tape, I was rolling on the floor laughing my butt off...It was funny because it featured a hero with a dream (Opus), which was ironic that he wishes to fly because he is a penguin.
Anyway...This movie is one of the greatest of off-beat holiday specials...You'll have to see for yourself...
