The 12 Days of Christmas
Ever wonder how that silly Christmas carol “The 12 Days of Christmas” got started? Well, it all begins when Sir Carolboomer sends his bumbling squire, Hollyberry, to steal the Christmas list of the hard-to-please Princess Silverbelle. But Hollyberry grabs the answers to the king’s crossword puzzle instead: A partridge in a pear tree? Three French hens? Eleven dames-a-dancing?
The stage is set for the most outrageous Christmas ever as Hollyberry scrambles to come up with each crazy gift! Featuring a great variety of musical styles—from Motown doo-wop to country/western and an Elvis impersonator—”The Twelve Days of Christmas” is a nonstop holiday romp that’ll fill your family with Christmas cheer now and throughout the year!
“The 12 Days of Christmas” is a warm and wonderful animated movie to enjoy with the entire family. There are delightful characters such as Hollyberry and Princess Silverbelle, not to mention a conceited character named Sir Carolboomer. Sir Carolboomer wants to obtain the princess’s Christmas list and rides his squire, Hollyberry, to get it for him. His motives are not pure, but poor Hollyberry is a good and loyal servant and the princess picks up on this fact. The gifts include turtle doves, six geese a laying, five golden rings, and so forth.
The animation is terrific and the ending is delightful and includes a nice surprise. The feature ends with a nice biography of writer Romeo Muller, who wrote over twenty television specials including “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Frosty the Snowman.” “The 12 Days of Christmas” will be warmly enjoyed by your entire family.
