It’s already happened. Almost as soon as Halloween ended, the stores had all their Christmas stuff out already. Heck, the Second Cup near my house actually switched over on the morning of Halloween to their Holiday menu. How messed up is that? I mean, I got my candy cane latte, but still…
Anyway, we here at Dork Shelf aren’t immune to starting the Yuletide season off a bit early, but it’s because we want to give away from awesome prize packs from our friends at Walt Disney Studios Canada. We have some Blu-rays to brighten up your holiday spirits, as 10 lucky winners with each receive a copy of THE MUPPET CHRISTMAS CAROL and PREP AND LANDING: THE TOTAL TINSEL COLLECTION.
Here’s a word from the one and only Gonzo regarding one of our favourite holiday films of all time, Blu-ray debut of The Muppet Christmas Carol:
“Greetings, holiday movie fans and lovers of culture, I am Gonzo … or perhaps better known to fans of this classic motion picture as literary legend Charles Dickens. Are you ready to laugh, cry, sing, frolic, cavort and enjoy yourself beyond belief!? Well, you’re in luck, because this 20th Anniversary Edition of Disney’s The Muppet Christmas Carol is guaranteed to put you in the holiday spirit that will stay with you forever—or at least until your Aunt Edna starts complaining that nobody is eating the fruitcake she brought … again!
Available for the first time ever on Blu-ray with high definition sound and picture, so you can enjoy even more of my blue-ness, not to mention the incredible spectacle of Kermit the Frog as Bob Cratchit, Miss Piggy as Emily Cratchit, Academy Award® winner Michael Caine (Best Supporting Actor, 1999, The Cider House Rules) as Scrooge, wonderful songs by Oscar® winner Paul Williams (Best Original Song, 1976, “Evergreen” from “A Star Is Born”) and, of course, my pal Rizzo the Rat as … well, Rizzo the Rat.” – Gonzo, the Whatever
Also, included is a two pack of films featuring some of the best elves around in Prep and Landing!
On Christmas Eve, a high-tech team of elves from an elite unit known as Prep & Landing ensures homes around the world are prepared for Santa’s visit. But when two hilarious little elves face unexpected challenges and are pushed to their limits, it’ll take a great big effort to save the season. In the second film, Naughty Vs. Nice, he outrageous yuletide adventures of Christmas elves Lanny and Wayne continue in this totally tinsel adventure that reminds us there’s room for everyone on the ‘nice’ list. Santa’s stealthiest little elves must race to recover classified North Pole technology, which has fallen into the hands of a computer-hacking naughty kid, in effort to stop Christmas from descending into chaos.
