We've had a lot of good memories around Christmas courtesy of Rankin Bass and Studio Topcraft, and this elusive number based on an even more obscure 1950 TV musical looks set to deliver as well. However will the gauntlet of jaunty seasonal songs detract from the atmosphere of Charles Dickens' spooky parable? Awkward Christian messages, revenge fantasies and cross-dimensional Scrooges are waiting under the tree! Merry Christmas to you & yours everybody!

Elsewhere Lindel tells a story in The Ancient Magus' Bride, KK goes to school in Blood Blockade Battlefront and Bono Bono has a lot to worry about. Respect your elders!

There was an idea, to bring together a group of public domain childhood mascots to see if they could be something more than the awkward mish-mash of having Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy together in one film sounds like it would be. Will this be a cacophonous tableau that doesn't need to work because kids will watch anything? (the approach that seems to be on the minds of a lot of folks behind Dreamworks' output). Or will it prove greater than the sum of its parts?
Accurate swearing, Tumblr nonsense and our picks for the hypothetical sequel await for your ears!
