Oedekerk ... and his team have taken the traditional animation techniques to another level -- creating snowflakes that seem to fall into the audience -- and they pull the viewers into the film.

The action sequences are fun and reminiscent of combat scenes from the Star Wars series.

It is best appreciated as an immersion in a three-dimensional toyland outfitted with enough whimsical gadgetry to fill a thousand playrooms.

Episode #4: Santa Vs. the Snowman 3D

This is a very funny and energetic Yuletide short film. It just what you would expect from the creators of "Jimmy Neutron". The 3D aspect of the short is pretty good. It does rip off "The Nightmare Before Christmas" a little but that shouldn't offend. Check it out! It could be playing at an IMAX theater near you this season!

Maybe really young children would like this, but I can't see anyone over the age of 4 enjoying it. The 3-D graphics weren't even that good...the snow was the only cool part!
