While they are not so common nowadays, Christmas specials used to be common on TV. In the age of streaming and franchising, many networks won't commission a new special unless it is tied to a pre-existing property. This is a shame because there were lots of great specials that were produced when networks were just looking for something to show families over the holidays. This one thankfully survives on Fandor, and it makes me sad that we don't see work like this produced regularly anymore. No offense to Olaf, but this makes for a FAR more emotional Christmas story!

Beautiful art animation style, and fun music.
