Fun, but somewhat cynical Xmas Humas
23 April 2005 | by diesixdieSee all my reviews

It's been about a dozen years since I've seen this. As I recall, Wiley comes up with a scheme to profit off of the holidays by selling gifts to his friends for them to give to one another. All the gifts are rocks.

The lead voices were done by Bob Elliot and Ray Goulding of radio fame. They provided a somewhat cynical edge to the humor making it, perhaps, a bit more advanced then the average overly saccharine Christmas special.

The animation quality was only average, which is appropriate as the style of the source artwork is minimal in detail.

I would like to see this again, though it's not easily available.
