You already know it’s the most wonderful time of the year, but did you also hear its the most wonderful time of the … Age? At least, according to Fox! At 9pm on Friday, December 16th, Fox will rebroadcast the new holiday special Ice Age A Mammoth Christmas. The special originally ran at that other holiday, Thanksgiving. But now that turkey day has come and gone, we can focus on the true winter holiday, Christmas. The half hour special starts with the full Ice Age gang, from Manny to Diego, with Sid, of course, causing trouble. This time, however, Sid goes a little too far, and fears he’s been placed on Santa’s naughty list. Faced with the prospect of not receiving any Christmas joy, the sloth makes his way to the North Pole to speak with Santa Claus, himself.
Of course, Sid doesn’t go alone – instead, he brings along Crash and Eddie, and even baby Peaches. And once the rest of the group notices Sid’s team has gone missing, Manny, Ellie, and Diego find their way tracking to the North Pole, as well.
So, what happens? Can the group all work together and save Christmas? Will they all become friends again in time for next summer’s feature film, Ice Age 4: Continental Drift? (The next movie in the franchise, Ice Age 4 Continental Drift, will hit theaters July 13th, 2012.) TOON in to Fox Friday night, and see!
