Why does this seem familiar?
9 December 2012 | by CuriosityKilledShawnSee all my reviews

Doctor Claw seizes control of Santa's workshop, enslaves his elves, and sabotages the toys while a crime-fighter with eccentric abilities comes to the rescue.

It's James Pond II: Codename RoboCod (a video game from the previous year).

I'm not kidding, it is so similar. Not that I mind, both are good. There is the usual amount of hijinks and humor in this episode-sized Xmas special. A bit too much emphasis is placed on the madcap antics instead of building a nice Xmasy feel. Though I think that the voice actress playing Penny is a bit too young.

Not a waste of time, but not an annual classic.
