26 minute Christmas special for family viewing
FATHER CHRISTMAS is an award winning animated special based on two books written by Raymond Briggs: Father Christmas and Father Christmas Goes on Holiday, and is a companion piece to The Snowman.
After a hard night’s work on Christmas Eve delivering presents to children all around the world, FATHER CHRISTMAS decides to go on a “blooming vacation”, converting his sledge into a caravan.
He holidays in France, Scotland and Las Vegas before coming home and settling down, with a bit of grumbling, to answer the mail, get the presents ready, deliver them to one and all and get to the Snowmens’ party on time. Unfortunately he discovers he has forgotten to deliver one rather important present to The Royal Family at Buckingham Palace.
FATHER CHRISTMAS won the Annecy International Animated Film Festival, France, award for best TV Special when made in 1993.
