- What Makes Stop Motion Go?: The magic makers reveal their secrets
Remember Snow Miser and Heat Miser, the two brothers who couldn't stop fighting in The Year Without a Santa Claus? They're back and they've been thrust into the most unexpected roles of potential saviors of Christmas thanks to the antics of their self-absorbed brother North Wind. North Wind is plotting to get rid of Santa and claim Christmas as his own holiday, but when his plans go awry, Snow Miser and Heat Miser are blamed for Santa's mishap and their mother, Mother Nature, decides that a fitting punishment is to force the boys to work together and take Santa's place during the holiday rush. Needless to say, the constantly feuding brothers don't work well together, but Mrs. Claus devises a plan involving the naughty and nice list that might just force the boys to put aside their rivalry and collaborate. A stop-animation production reminiscent of favorite Rankin-Bass holiday specials like Santa Claus is Coming to Town and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer, A Miser Brothers Christmas features hand-crafted, incredibly expressive puppets, richly detailed sets, excellent voice talent including Mickey Rooney as Santa, and a crisp, high definition picture that adds a whole new dimension of detail and clarity to the classic animation form. A 23-minute bonus featurette takes an in-depth look at everything from puppet construction to voice casting, the use of color in the film, and the patience and attention to detail required in stop animation, and features interview footage from producers, puppet makers, animators, voice actors, and many others. A Miser Brothers Christmas is an entertaining holiday film with attitude, conflict, and a great message about overcoming rivalry and working together. (Ages 3 and older). --Tami Horiuchi
