Did You Know?

Goofs

Inspector Gadget complained earlier while falling from the sky with his parachute, that it was too slow and that he'd freeze, yet in the end he rides up with Santa higher into the sky where it would be colder and has no additional clothing on. Likewise Brain is still naked. See more »

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.
