What's the story?

CLICK, CLACK, MOO: CHRISTMAS AT THE FARM is an animated special about a group of farm animals who are excited about Christmas and have long lists for Santa. But when they learn that Farmer Brown wants a Tumbletron 300 clothes dryer, they work together to find a way to raise the money by Christmas to give it to him. Meanwhile, Doug the Duck is trying to find ways to redeem himself after a year of naughty behavior in order to get back on Santa's nice list. 

Is it any good?

This cheerful holiday special, based on the popular Click, Clack, Moo children's books, mixes humor and music to create a colorful Christmas spirit-filled story. The voice performances from well-known comedians like Patton Oswalt and Rachel Bloom give it a contemporary edge, which makes it more fun. 

Click, Clack, Moo: Christmas at the Farm is more entertaining than educational, and the focus on commercialism and advertising is a troubling reminder of what the season can be like for grownups. However, the messages it offers about giving, teamwork, problem-solving, and forgiveness overcome this. Whether you're familiar with the books or not, it's a fun family pick for the holidays.
