Another Chuck Jones/Raggedy Ann collaboration I like
24 November 2009 | by ja_kitty_71See all my reviews

Here is another Chuck Jones Christmas TV special I like after watch it. And it is another Chuck Jones/Raggedy Ann collaboration I hardly remember, until I watched it on YouTube that is.

Anyway the story starts when inventor/efficiency expert Alexander Graham Wolf, who looks and sounds like Wile E. Coyote, plans to take over Santa's workshop - I like Wolf's outfit. Overhearing this, Comet, Santa's #5 reindeer, asks Raggedy Ann and Andy and their dog Raggedy Arthur to help her because they're easy to carry and aren't bothered by cold weather. At the factory, Alexander is using a machine to encase all the toys in blocks of a transparent, unbreakable substance called "gloopstick," to ensure that they'll last forever (even though the children won't be able to play with them). He then intends to charge the children for the gloopstick-encased toys and become rich. Will the Raggedys be able to save Christmas? well you will have to watch for yourself.

So my last word that I love this special from beginning to end. And I don't have any particular scene I like, because I love the whole cartoon. One last thing I like to say: I am starting to like the vocal talents of Les Tremayne (Mr. Wolf)...R.I.P Les (1913-2003).
