    This charming Christmas TV special is guaranteed to make you believe two things: 1) Jim Henson is a creative genius. 2) Pixar has committed one of the biggest copyright infringements in cinema history with "Toy Story." John Lasseter and Co. should be ashamed. This special, while being a warm, funny, and imaginative take on what happens to toys once kids leave the vicinity, contains a surprising bite of frigidness; the fear of being caught by humans, and the resulting death-like state that awaits all toys who step out of line, make this show unique, and timeless. Peppered with heartbreaking moments throughout, Christmas Toy also captures the tender feelings experienced by children on Christmas Day. This is not standard kiddie stuff, and adults should not shy away from watching this one. My one and only complaint is that the ending is a bit sugarcoated, the happy resolution is sudden, and seems to contradict several "rules" in the toy universe; however, I understand Henson's choice, as Christmas should ultimately be a happy, joyous occasion free from fear and sadness.

    While I need to rewatch it, I remember loving it as a child.

    Loved this movie as a kid. Loved, loved, LOVED it. It's been a while, though, and the rating is probably based more on my fond memories of my childhood than the actual epicness of the movie.
