Critic Reviews for Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey
Nestor isn't the best Rankin-Bass special, but it's worth seeing for its serious midsection and gratifying conclusion.
As a whole, Nester is a well-intentioned (if lesser) version of the "misfits can make a difference" story that Rankin/Bass did much better in Rudolph. The story is thin and sometime struggles to fill the brief 22-minute running time.
This is the best way to tell the Christmas story in Animagic: with the proper amount of pathos and levity -- and fun character design, too.
There are charming moments (as there are in all Rankin/Bass specials) but it never delivers quite as well as it should.
Audience Reviews for Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey
The donkey is adorable, but that's pretty much all this story has going for it.
Christmas Movie Review Mania 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.
