| a sweet family friendly story!!
This TV special has been an annual favorite in our house since it came out in 1995. Fortunately, I videotaped it and my family is glad I did. This is a wonderful adaptation of a classic children's book. Mr Willowby (played by Robert Downey Jr.) is the very epitome of Christmas spirit and cheer. However, his beautiful perfect Christmas tree is too big. What to do? The tree top is lopped and surprises ensue as the tree (or parts of it anyway) finds its way into the hands of many who also wish to celebrate the holiday season. Leslie Nielsen and Stockard Channing round out a marvelous cast along with many puppet animals including a cameo by Kermit the Frog himself. This special does deserve to be on DVD although I have my doubts it will ever get there. If it ever gets rerun on TV and you have a chance to watch it I highly recommend this for the entire family to watch....and don't forget to record it!
