The 7th Level 6 of 10
This Emmy Award winner (it didn't really win anything. I'm being sarcastic) is based on a story by Charles Dickens. It concerns a toy maker and his daughter (played by Danny Thomas and his daughter Marlo) who barely manage to make ends meet due to a cruel, evil toy factory owner who's running them out of business. The daughter's fiance is lost at sea one dark night, and at one point she agrees to marry this vile successful entrepreneur (I love how the guy who actually makes money is always the bad guy. I kept hoping for a real "You've Got Mail" romance to blossom here, but alas, it wasn't to be) when the Cricket On The Hearth, voiced by Roddy Mcdowell and also the toy maker's best friend and good luck charm, steps in to make things right...I can't say that I enjoyed this one. The songs are good, and Roddy Mcdowell is perfect as the cricket. It just doesn't have enough of a Christmasy feel for me. I just don't associate annoying insects with Christmas. After all, they're insects. They're annoying. It would be like Dreamworks making An Antz Christmas. Scratch that. It would be like Dreamworks making Antz.
