Because it isn't specifically stated in the Bible itself, various sources have given different theories regarding which man gave Jesus which gift. In this case, Melchior is shown giving the gold, Balthasar the frankincense, and Caspar the myrrh. See more »

Awesome movie
2 December 2008 | by JagersMomSee all my reviews

I just got this movie because the cover looked cute. My son, husband, and I watched it and fell in love. It is short and straight to the point. My son did not lose interest at all, in fact we had to watch it several more times. Truthfully, this might be the best animated Christmas film we've ever seen. And it doesn't hurt that the score was done by the amazing Brothers Cazimero. Robert and Roland Cazimero are well known Hawaiian entertainers, in Hawaii at least. Robert has the voice of an angel. I recommend this movie to all ages. It has awesome graphics, beautiful music and is the greatest story ever told. And Andy Griffith fit so well as the narrator because he has such a calming voice.
