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.

Disney’s Prep & Landing Demystifies the Santa Claus Phenomenon

If you’re a parent, chances are you’ve already had problems with trying to explain the specifics regarding Santa Claus and his many magical abilities – how does he fit into the chimney? How is he able to deliver all the presents to children from all over the world in one night? How can he fly? And why the heck is he kissing Mommy? Luckily for you, Walt Disney will answer all of the above questions (except for the kissing part, Mommy will have to answer that one) in this coming holiday season, with the DVD release of Prep & Landing.

Snoopy and the Peanuts gang celebrate A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Snoopy and the Peanuts gang celebrate A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving

Every year. Every holiday. It never feels special or real until we get word from Snoopy, Charlie Brown, and the rest of the Peanuts gang. This year, the Thanksgiving episode finds a home directly on turkey day, hitting ABC on Thursday, November 24th, at 8pm. A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving, the classic half hour animated special, was created by Charles M. Schulz back in 1973, which means we’re nearing the 40th anniversary of the toon. Featuring the usual sweet story that we’ve come to expect from the Peanuts gang, as well as perfectly matching with Vince Guaraldi’s musical score, this Emmy Award winning cartoon is a childhood classic for generations of childhoods.

The Snow Golem says Thank You to the Fire Kingdom

The Snow Golem says Thank You to the Fire Kingdom

Many of us here at ToonBarn Studios are visiting family for Thanksgiving. Others are getting together with friends. While I’m not positive where every single person is going to be, I can very definitively tell you no one will hang out with a Snow Golem, or visit a Fire Kingdom, or, and especially not this one, eat a bunch of sandwiches on top of the Ice King. That’s right, I said it. As cool as we are, we’ve got nothing on Finn and Jake, who can absolutely chow down on some grub, complete with a crown, while they sit atop the defeated king. That’s pretty awesome. …but not as awesome as getting a bonus episode of Adventure Time this Wednesday, November 23rd!

Have a Merry Arthur Chirstmas in theaters

Santa Claus isn’t just a legend, he’s also a man – a family man. Most of us have, by now, heard of his wife, Mrs. Claus. However, lesser known in the stories are the extended family beyond the married couple: their two sons Arthur and Steve, as well as the elder of the household, Arthur and Steve’s grandfather, Grandsanta. After 70 years of delivering Christmas gifts, Santa is getting up there in age. When one present is left undelivered, Santa and Steve, in line to be the next Claus, figure a 99.99999% delivery run was good enough for them. But not Arthur, who remains determined that all good little girls and boys get their Christmas present.
