Smurfs Holiday Celebration & ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas

smurfs

In the Emmy Award-nominatedThe Smurfs’ Christmas Special, the Smurfs encounter two children, Guinevere and William, who have lost their way in the snowy woods after a mysterious stranger prompts their sleigh to turn over. Before reuniting the kids with their family, the Smurfs invite them to their village to enjoy in their annual Christmas celebration which includes gifts, treats, singing and dancing. Thinking Papa Smurf is Santa Claus and the rest of the Smurfs are his Elves, Guinevere and William blissfully partake in the holiday merry making. The mysterious stranger however, still lurks in the woods in hopes of capturing the kids. He goes so far as enticing the evil Gargamel to help him kidnap the two. Will the Smurfs help Guinevere and William reunite with their family?

In‘Tis The Season To Be Smurfy, Grandpa Smurf and Sassette visit a village to witness how human beings celebrate the holidays. While at the village, they are touched by the plight of Gustav, a poor, aging toymaker whose wife Elise is hopelessly ill. Determined to help them, Grandpa and Sassette call on their fellow Smurfs to bring some Christmas cheer into the old couple’s lives. Overnight, they lavishly decorate Gustav and Elise’s home with a Christmas tree, gifts and treats. The authorities however, accuse the poor couple of having pick-pocketed a villager in order to afford their extravagant feast. Will the Smurfs come to their rescue before the sheriff arrests Gustav on Christmas day?

"The Smurfs Holiday Celebration offers consumers a set of two heartwarming stories that are sure to bring viewers into the spirit of the holiday season," said Mary Ellen Thomas, WHV Executive Marketing Director of Non-Theatrical Franchise. She added, "What’s wonderful about both of these specials is that not only are they entertaining and enjoyable to watch, but they also offer young viewers important messages about selflessness and compassion.The Smurfs Holiday Celebration is a fun, seasonal title to own and also makes a great gift-giving idea."

You can purchase the Smurf’s Holiday Celebration on DVD for $8.49 at Amazon.com (RV $14.98)

For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas "a fraudulent myth!" The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses "and let up a little on the wonder why." How Albert is persuaded to change his tune paves the way for Santa’s jolly return to Junctionville — and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore’s poem. Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel are featured voices. Approx. 23 minutes. Year: 1974

    I never saw “Miracle on 34th Street” until the year my youngest son was a sr in high school. He told me he’d had a deprived child hood as he had never seen the movie. I told him I hadn’t either so we went and bought it and watched it together! It was great!
