From A Dream of Toyland (1908) to Toy Story (1994), animators have long been delighting audiences by bringing children's toys to life. Here the Halas & Batchelor studio, best known for their version of Animal Farm (1954), use Clement Clarke Moore's The Night Before Christmas as a launching pad for a charming tale of love and drama under the Christmas tree, with a 'cartoon modern' style. Ho ho ho.
