There's blindness caused by grief, melodramatic plot twists by the bushel, and a cricket narrator. But it's all a little bland, with songs that last way too long. Full Review

Swapped out the now-iconic Animagic for unappealing traditional animation. It also removed any really engaging songs or fun characters. Full Review

The animation is a bit choppy, but the title character is still very charming. It's a shame this one doesn't get more regular broadcasting, because even if it's often not a conventional Christmas special, it's still a joy to watch. Full Review
