WB Holiday 2011 ~~Holiday Classics~~ Gift Guide



Synopsis: 
Join the expedition visiting legendary Candy Man Willy Wonka (Gene Wilder) in a spendiferous movie that wondrously brings to the screen the endlessly appetizing delights of Roald Dahl's classic book.  Coated with flavorful tunes and production design that constantly dazzles the eye, this effervescent musical never fails to enchant young and old.  On a whirlwind tour of Willy's incredible, edible realm of chocolate waterfalls, elfish Oompa-Loompas and industrial-sized confections, a boy named Charlie (Peter Ostrum) will discover the sweetest secret of all: a generous, loving heart.  And you'll rediscover the timeless magic of a delicious family classic.

Synopsis:
Celebrate the solstice in Stone Age style with these two animated holiday classics, starring America's favorite pre-historic family.  Your first course of holiday cheer from Fred and co. is 1977's A Flintstone Christmas, in which Fred and Barney must save Christmas when Santa sprains his ankle.  There's one big problem, though - Fred promised Mr. Slate that he will play Santa at the Children's holiday party.  Can Fred and Barney deliver all the toys and still make it back to the party in time?  And your second course is 1993's Emmy nominated A Flintstone Family Christmas, which gives viewers a glimpse into the later life of the Rubbles and the Flintstones.  Awaiting the return of Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm (now married with children of their own), Fred and Barney encounter a criminally inclined "caveless" youth.  Fred and Wilma attempt to instill values in the boy, only to find themselves with a most unexpected Christmas gift.

 Synopsis:
St. Louis 1903.  The well-off Smith family has four beautiful daughters, including Esther and little Tootie.  Seventeen-year old Esther has fallen in love with John, the boy next door who has just moved in.  He, however, barely notices her at first.  The family is shocked when Mr. Smith reveals that he has been transferred to a nice position in New York, which means that the family has to leave St. Louis just before the start of the St. Louis 1904 World's Fair.

Synopsis:
Yogi and Boo Boo usually snooze right through Christmas. (Hibernation, you know.)  But this year, happy holidays music rouses them from their sleep and right into the fun: skating, skiing, singing, and trimming the tree.  But life isn't all mistletoe and eggnog.  Two holiday grouches - a mysterious hermit and the obnoxious nephew of Jellystone Lodge's owner - are determined to ruin Christmas.  And our two heroes, joined by Snagglepuss, Augie Doggie, Doggie Daddy, Huckleberry Hound and more Hanna-Barbera favorites, are just as determined to make December 25th the jolliest day of the year!

For some unexplained reason, letters to Santa Claus are being returned to the children of Junctionville.  It seems some sour soul has angered St. Nick, calling Christmas "a fraudulent myth!"  The skeptical rodent Albert Mouse has to be brought to his senses "and let up a little on the wonder why."  How Albert is persuaded to change is tune paves the way for Santa's jolly return to Junctionville --and the joyous finale of this charming animated fable inspired by Clement Moore's poem.  Joel Grey, Tammy Frimes, John McGiver and George Gobel are featured voices.  Approx. 23 minutes. Year:1974
