Wonder Pets: "Save The Reindeer"
The Wonder Pets - Save The Reindeer
This sweet little holiday special aired last holiday season on Nick Jr. and I was upset that I missed it then. Well, it is now out on DVD and being the overgrown Wonder Pets fans that we are, we now own a copy. It is a bit longer than the usual episode and the disc contains several other eps of the show as well. Through the magic of photo puppetry, Linny the guinea pig, Tuck the turtle and Ming Ming the duckling are settling down to enjoy Christmas but must journey to the North Pole to save a baby reindeer and by extension Christmas. As with other episodes of the series, this one is mostly sung and the Wonder Pets must use teamwork to solve the problem. Be warned that this show is technically aimed at preschoolers, so some may not enjoy it particularly, but us childless 30somethings thought it was quite charming. (Then again, I've already established that we already like the series ...) Can't go wrong with a message like "Christmas isn't about presents. It's about being together and helping others," in my humble opinion.
