A Mammoth Christmas brings the Ice Age to Fox

A Mammoth Christmas brings the Ice Age to Fox

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.
