Father Christmas, cartoon

Posted on

I watched animated Father Christmas (1991) for the first time yesterday.  It is based on Raymond Brigg’s picture book and is made in the same style as The Snowman (1982).  The book was better than the movie but the cartoon was fun.  Father Christmas grumbles his way to his vacation.  He tries out several spots: France, Scotland, and finally Las Vegas.  Vegas is his favorite spot with swimming pools, hearty food and creature comfort.  The cartoon had been modified a bit to appeal to American audience with different terms used. Cute show.
