Last night, Tucker, the kids and I watched Community‘s Christmas special: Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas. It’s done in claymation just like my all-time Christmas favorite – Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. However, claymation is where the similarities end.
Rudolph was all cute and worried about public acceptance in the face of…well…he had that nose thing. The Community special has a guy looking for the meaning of Christmas accompanied by a womanizing jack-in-the-box, a wind-up ballerina, a rather angry baby, a drummer boy, robot and a teddy bear who’s just there for the cookies.
Don’t even get me started on the Christmas Wizard.
I can’t say too much more without telling you everything since the show’s only thirty minutes [less without the commercials] but I digged the show, Tucker guffawed once or twice and Cara was just happy the “…dolls [were] talking…” Before that episode I hadn’t seen any of Community. What we watched last night was funny enough to pique my interest and I figure I wouldn’t mind too much if I saw another – normal – episode.
Oh! And there’s free stuff if you’re on Facebook and/or Twitter! At 8pm EST /7pm CST, everyone’s going to be watching Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas and if you RSVP on One2One Network’s site, you’re eligible to win prizes! Yay, prizes.
Even if you’ve never heard of Twitter and/or Facebook, you might as well check out Abed’s Uncontrollable Christmas. It’s well worth the thirty minutes.
