In any case, in this special, Spot meets with some reindeers who work for Santa and somehow lost the sleigh while testing it. The reindeers do the tango, Spot goes gather up his friends and go find the sleigh. Then Spot is whisked off to the North Pole, visits Santa's workshop, and then back home again.
The dialog is the most witty I've seen in the Spot series so far, and the lips of the characters actually move to reflect the speech - something that was not done before (due to the fact that in the series, the entire story is basically just narrated and voiced by one person).
All in all, it's a nice special. My copy of "Spot and His Grandparents go to the Carnival" should be in my mail anytime soon, so we can see how this one holds out to it then. Until then, I consider this one of best, if not the best, of the bunch.
My daughter enjoys children's TV but she tends to switch off after a while, preferring to draw or play with her toys, but Spot held her attention in a way that nothing else had before. Each night she would ask for Spot to be played before bedtime and we would dance a little Tango along with the reindeer. I enjoyed watching it with her as it's a nice little story.
As well as 'Spot's Magical Christmas' there are a few more Spot stories on the DVD which I personally didn't enjoy as much. They look older and have lower production values and weird voices. However, my daughter enjoyed these other stories just as much and they would keep her occupied whilst I got on with wrapping presents and such. Spot has really made our Christmas and bedtimes magical.
In-between each story is a short segment with real life children on a set made up to look like a page from a Spot story book. The children have little tasks and puzzles to do such as finding tools or figuring out which clothes are needed to play outside. At first I thought these segments looked like boring filler but my daughter enjoyed these too.Read more ›
If I was to have any quibbles at all, the live-action bits between the short episodes following the "main feature" seem a bit contrivied, the extra episodes may be familiar from other tapes/DVDs, albeit with more up-to-date narration, and (as always with toddler DVDs), you never get that many minutes of material for your money, but these are trifles. All in all, money well spent.
