I love watching animated Christmas specials, and just caught this one on ABC Family. This is THE most bizarre Christmas special I've ever seen. It was done in the classic stop-motion animation like "Rudolph" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town", but this was like a cross between the standard Santa myth and Lord of the Rings. There was even a Gandolf-type figure called the Great Ak. Were you aware that Santa was raised by a woodland elf and a female lion that he weened off of? VERY fantasy-oriented with immortals and woodland gods and such. Very amusing-try to find it if you've never seen it. It's like no other Christmas show out there.
