A solid Rankin/Bass effort.
Nestor The Long Eared Christmas Donkey is basically a rewrite of Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer, with the imaculate conception storyline replacing Santa; it's not as good as other Rankin & Bass classics, but it has a charm that makes this overlooked Christmas special well worth watching !
Spoilers Ahead: Let's Review Nestor The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey. It Stars The Rooster From Robin Hood As Speiltoe, Nestor's Ancestor And The Narrator (It Can't Be Rankin Bass Without One). Nestor Is A Long-Eared
Donkey Who Gets Made Fun Of His Big Ears (Dumbo), His Mum Dies (Bambi) And Eventually Saves The Day (Rudolph). The Animation Is Fine, The Story Is Fine, It's Just Fine. That's All I Can Say
161230: This film starts out a bit harsh and tragic. Poor old Nestor is truly mistreated, if not abused. He survives of course, carries on and discovers his strengths. Some decent animated characters, I especially liked the Romans, and catchy tunes.
This a great story of the Donkey that carried Mary to Bethlehem. There are so many shows about Santa Claus and it's good to see stories about what Christmas is really about and I like how they do add in Rudolph in at the end.
Half a star because his mother dies on top of him in an effort to keep him from freezing. Gave me horrible dreams as a child.
NOT a theatrical short.
A nice story with decent songs.
A poorer version of the Rudolph story - Nestor has long ears which are the source of much ridicule, but are eventually what allow him to triumph. The music is mediocre at best, and Roger Miller's oh-so-folksy narration gets old fast. If you've never seen this, there's a reason.
:'( what the hell was this. Take dumbo, Rudolph and Sophie's choice then mush them together!!!
A little donkey is born with long ears. He isn't just tease but he is abused. His owner won't feed him and picks him up by the ears and throws him against things like walls and such on several occasions. Eventually throwing him out into the snow to die.
His mother who would starve herself so he could eat and wept for him when he was abused runs after him into the snow. She covers him with her body so he won't freeze to death. When he wakes she is dead!
Some angel comes to take him to Bethlehem and of course we all know what is going to happen there.
Did they really need to beat the ever-loving spirit out of this poor donkey just so they could set him up to be Mary and Joseph's donkey?!
Such a depressing story!
