YMMV / 'Twas the Night Before Christmas

The poem:

The Rankin-Bass special:

  • Ear Worm: Applies to most of the musical numbers, but especially "Even a Miracle Needs A Hand".
  • Family-Unfriendly Aesop: While probably unintentional, this special could be interpreted as having a rather heavy handed anti-intellectual message.
  • "Weird Al" Effect: This special isn't shown on TV much during the Christmas season anymore. Modern audiences might know the song "Even A Miracle Needs A Hand" from South Park as opposed to this show.
