A charming tale about a family of mice living in the wealthy and eccentric Mr. Willowby's house. They decide to start the hunt for the perfect Christmas tree (namely, chopping off the top of the perfect tree Mr. Willowby has brought home). However, while they continually attempt to take their piece of tree, the top of the tree is passed around from humans to animals, each one taking just enought of the tree to make it the perfect size for them. Through this adventure, the mice see how others celebrate Christmas.Written by
Darling classic that should become available on DVD, along with other Muppet Xmas specials
Back when my 16-year-old was four, my mother taped a number of Xmas specials for her on a VHS two-tape collection. We treasure these tapes, and over the years a number of the classics have found their way onto DVD. The sudden explosion of "Rudolph" products is a good example of how these beloved stories have made their way into our collective Xmas memories. I wish "Mr. Willowby's Xmas" would also be recognized as a valuable contribution to my daughter's generation and become available on DVD. I know there were other Jim Henson Xmas productions that appeared on T.V.,so a collection would be fantastic!
We watch "The Muppet's Christmas Carol" every year as well... just can't get enough of those adorable creatures!
