Heartwarming
25 December 2012 | by edhuds0nSee all my reviews

PROS: The story was very sentimental, and it was quite nice to hear the voices of Eartha Kitt, Patti Labelle, and Vanessa Williams singing "Santa, Baby" as a trio. This was also one of the few credits for Tom Joyner outside of his radio show.

CONS: The plot was somewhat pedestrian. The interactions between some of the voice actors was less than smooth, and with most other cartoons, there is always at least one song that makes you race for the mute button.

Nevertheless, my wife and daughters and I thoroughly enjoyed watching it this Christmas. We gave it a 7/10 rating.
