| The harder they come...
This is featured on the DVD of Surf's Up. I don't know why the people who wrote and directed the first one didn't get to do this, but boy does it show. Little more than the obligatory sequel, this matches the pace, and even does have a reasonable range to its references and humor(and yes, a lot of this is funny, and almost charming), however, the plot is utterly cookie-cutter, with Meeper having to "save Xmas". While I'm not personally bothered by the spelling, obviously some will be, and one has to wonder why they went for it. The Futurama Christmas episodes did, and that was part of their understandable hostility towards the holiday(I do not envy a single Jew growing up in America). Where The ChubbChubbs! was a sweet little story with a moral(that I refuse to spoil for those who have not seen the short) so easy to process that the youngest of audience members can't miss it, this comes off as preachy and better-knowing, literally having the lead character say what they want you to take from it. The singing feels tacked on, like it was put in to remind you of the far superior piece that this is a followup to. There's not much that is offensive in this. I recommend this to the biggest fans of the original. 6/10
