Movie Info

In this animated holiday outing, a good-hearted little donkey is the butt of many jokes because of his exceptionally long ears. Despite the constant ribbing, Nestor grows up to perform a very important task on the very first Christmas Eve. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Episode #8: Nestor, The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey

Nestor, The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey is like Rudolph only more heart-warming. That is a fact. This is a beautiful Christmas special that ACTUALLY promotes the true meaning of the holiday. Not going to give away a lot. Check it out for yourself! Especially, the kiddies!

Number 12 is another Rankin/Bass Production, Nestor the long ear donkey, A story about a young donkey with long ears who is teased because of his ears, but in the end Nestor is at the manger with the Baby Jesus. An Joseph and Mary choose Nestor as there Donkey. Not as good as some of the other Rankin/Bass Productions but still a sweet animation of 1977 with Roger Miller telling the story. Still an excellent Christian Story. 4 stars for this one.

The donkey is adorable, but that's pretty much all this story has going for it.
