Christmas Cracker


This short animation consists of three segments that take a playful look at Christmas: a rendition of “Jingle Bells” in which paper cut-out figures dance, a dime-store rodeo of tin toys, and a story of decorating the perfect Christmas tree. This holiday film received many awards and an Oscar nomination.
