|Contains CLAYMATION COMEDY OF HORRORS, CLAYMATION CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION, and CLAYMATION EASTER. Will Vinton's unique Christmas productions have won the hearts of viewers young and old. The three holiday specials presented here (Halloween, Christmas, and Easter) aired originally on network television between 1987 and 1992.|
CLAYMATION COMEDY OF HORRORS: This wacky Halloween Special features Wilshire Pig and his reluctant sidekick, Sheldon Snail, on a quest for a secret diary that will lead them to Dr. Frankenswine's monster. Once inside the Doctor's castle however they find a Monster's Convention-a riotous Jamboree of ghouls, ghosts, and goblins going on. This hilarious horror spoof is a rapid-fire display of amazing animation, ridiculous sight gags, laughs, and general ruckus.
CLAYMATION CHRISTMAS CELEBRATION: Herb and Rex, the Jurassic odd couple, introduce segments featuring the Three Wise Men, singing camels, ice-skating penguins and the hilarious Paris Bellharmonic Orchestra. There's even a Motown rendition of "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" performed by special guests, the California Raisins. The entire cast joins in a rousing chorus finale of "Here We Come A-Wassailing", which is certain to put everyone in the Christmas mood.
CLAYMATION EASTER: Claymation Easter marks the return of Wilshire Pig, with an absurd plan to kidnap the Easter Bunny just days before the holiday and launch himself as the first ever Easter Pig. As one would expect, things go terribly wrong for Wilshire in a series of disastrous and hilarious misadventures. As with all of Will Vinton's creations, totally off-the-wall comedy is matched with eye-popping animation.

Customer Reviews of Claymation Christmas
This will Suprise You as How Good It Is1/1/2014
If you guess that a Christmas special based on a raisin commercial can't be good, guess again.The music has a great classic Motown sound; the claymation animation is amazing. My family watches this every year.I count this as one of my all time favorite holiday specials. It is a series of separate clips introduced by two animated clay hosts. Each bit has it's own feel. Some are silly; some sweet; some are funny and some are beautiful. This is one of the best of the genre. It's as good as the animated How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Charlie Brown's Christmas. It's that good. The two other holiday specials included are funny and off beat. The humor on them may not appeal to everyone, but my family appreciates quirky comedies.
A Childhood Classic11/3/2004
I can still remember the first time I watched a Christmas Claymation on tv, with my siblings as a child. I think many of my fondest memories from childhood are from the traditions my family had around Christmas. One being to watch this movie. I was so excited when I found this movie on buy.com that I bought it not only for my family but for all my sisters and their families as well. Now my children and my sisters' children will be able to enjoy this classic. The other two claymations included on this DVD have become just as special to my family as the original. I encourage you to buy this movie, you won't regret it!
