Dr. Seuss rip off

Dr. Seuss rip off That’s all I can see when I’m watching this and they even make a reference to that when they’re loading the sleigh near the beginning and they really make Santa look bad in this with the elves which is horrible it is kind of funny though but so horrible all right in the world
age 11+

A Very Strange Christmas Special.

It started slow but hit it's stride when Murray shares his past. Little kids may not get the humor.
