It would've been an excellent tape if FHE didn't duplicate it in EP speed.

It was later released on DVD from Hen's Tooth Video.

Did any of the other Will Vinton TV specials get released to DVD? This one is actually pretty good stuff.

-danno, not logging in on public terminal.

None taken if you had to use a public area.

I think this is the only DVD for those three specials. The California Raisins specials don't seem to have a DVD yet on their own.

Will Vinton himself, who no longer works for the studio that no longer bares his namesake (Laika), set up his own new company and has some DVD's for sale of his former work...

Hey guys. I just found your site today as I was also trying to see if there was a DVD available. I absolutely loved watching the Christmas and Easter specials over and over on that horribly crappy VHS tape.
As it turns out, I was able to find this DVD on Amazon- it combines the Christmas, Halloween (didn't know he made a Halloween special), and Easter onto one DVD.
Hope this isn't considered "spamming", but I'll go ahead and paste the link to Amazon for it.
Very interesting blog by the way!

it's not spamming. I did however bothered commenting that Hen's Tooth had released it out on DVD anyway. I just wish the title of the disc was better worded though. It should be "Will Vinton's Claymation Holiday Classics" if nothing else.
