DIC Animated Christmas Blast (2008*) – Part II

Twas The Night Before BumpyIn the second and final part of our Christmas DVD spectacular, we take an in-depth look at Disc 2 of that Shout Factory DVD boxset. ‘Twas The Night Before Bumpy (1995)’ is a feature length stop-motion animated Christmas special of Danger Productions’ ‘Bump In The Night’, and is as about half as enjoyable as you’d expect a 10-minute cartoon format stretched out to over an hour could be. ‘Jingle Bell Rock (1995)’ on the other hand was an original made for TV half-hour special which gives an origin story for the hit Bobby Helms Christmas song, and is a weirdly enjoyable Christmas artefact for reasons we’ll get into on the podcast itself.

We hope you’ve all had some happy holidays, whatever it be that you celebrate, and we’re looking forward to getting onto Season 2 proper in the new year!
