Holiday Gift Set

I love Christmas.  The snow, the greenery, family get-togethers, all of those are reasons I love that time of year.  One of my favorite Christmas pastimes is to wish people around me only “Happy Holidays” and not “Merry Christmas.”  See, it makes sense because there are all sorts of holidays during that time of year and I want to be able to lay claim to as many of them as possible.  Not to mention, it drives all those Palin-esque crazy right-wingers nuts to not hear their personal health and wealth giver and his alleged birthday placed above all else.  Nonetheless, there is a new holiday themed DVD out which shows just how much fun that snowy time of year can be.

Starting this September 23rd, now available on DVD from Bagdasarian Productions and Paramount Studios Home Entertainment comes a fantastic collection of holiday specific episodes from your favorite gang of friendly rodents.  Alvin And The Chipmunks – A Chipmunk Christmas is ready to burst into your living room with holiday excitement and take you on fantastic journeys into the land of fun.  Bring home this modern classic today!

This disc is full of oldies but goodies.  Dave manages to get Alvin a gig playing the harmonica at Carnegie Hall.  The only problem is that Alvin gave away his harmonica to a sick child.  Now it’s a rush for Alvin, Simon and Theodore to try and find another one before it’s too late.  Three episodes make their home on this DVD – “A Chipmunk Christmas,” “Merry Christmas Mr. Carroll” and “Dave’s Wonderful Life.”  This disc also includes Chipmunk versions of Jingle Bells, Deck The Halls and The Chipmunk Song.

Unfortunately, there are no special features included in this disc beyond full screen format and stereo sound.

As usual, this show is heartwarming and fantastic.  The animation is clever and delightfully dated, the messages of each story are relevant and the holiday cheer is nothing short of contagious.  The thing I like the best about these three episodes is that they focus on what Christmas is all about – giving, kindness, selflessness and all that.  Not to mention, all those Chipmunk versions of Christmas songs are absolutely delightful.

Bring home this hearty Christmas tale today!

This DVD is available at Amazon.com.
