Holiday Animations

Regular readers will know that I tend to use Christmas and New Year's TV to catch up on animated movies I haven't seen. Here's my pick of "new" animations over the festive season. Disney's version of A Christmas Carol looks promising (BBC1 24th 4.45pm). The Snowman And The Snowdog (see picture) was made to mark the 30th anniversary of Raymond Briggs' classic (Channel 4 24th 8pm, repeated 25th 1.55pm). Room On The Broom was created by the same team that made The Gruffalo (BBC1 25th 4.35pm). Disney's Tangled remakes the Repunzel fairy tale (ITV1 25th 3.10pm). DreamWorks Animation's How To Train Your Dragon (below) won 10 Annie Awards, so that's a must (BBC1 26th 5pm). Bolt is about a TV superdog that keeps rescuing Miley Cyrus until he finds himself out on the street (BBC1 27th 2pm). Disney/Pixar's Oscar-winning Up launched the Cannes Film Festival in 2009 (BBC1 1st 6.30pm). Disney's The Princess And The Frog is a hand-drawn cartoon harking back to the good old days of animation (BBC1 1st 4pm).
