‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Deluxe Edition Blu-Ray/DVD Review


Tis’ the season for great family entertainment with Warner Home Video’s (WHV) classic holiday titles on Blu-ray™ Disc. Available to consumers this fall is a lineup of legendary animated television specials including the dearly loved ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, which makes its debut on Blu-ray™ Disc for the first time.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas, tells the story about how for some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville. It seems some resident has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas “a fraudulent myth!” Skeptical 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 town – and the joyous finale of the animated fable inspired by Clement Moore’s poem and produced by the merrymaking conjurers of Rankin/Bass Studios. The voice talents of Joel Grey, Tammy Grimes, John McGiver and George Gobel make this festive fable even more fun.

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas Deluxe Edition Bonus Feature Includes:

Christmas: A Global Holiday – An animated comic book that explores Yuletide traditions around the world.

This Blu-Ray/DVD set includes the classic children’s Christmas story ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.  I remember being in my pajamas curled up in a blanket to watch this holiday special as a child.  I have always found the animated characters in this story to be super cute.  One look at the wide eyed mice and it is easy to see why this 1974 original has been popular year after year.

This is a great video to share with little children as it is only 24 minutes in length and provides an added story to the Clement Moore iconic poem. 

‘Twas the Night Before Christmas (Deluxe Edition) [Blu-ray] is avilable from Amazon for $14.99.
