What immediately caught my attention is the style of the animation, it is rather old-fashioned and different from the recent digital/computerized images. By old-fashioned I don't mean dull or uninventive, but rather quaint, charming and heart-warming. The storyline was based on the adventures of a little elephant Mumfie and his friends Scarecrow and a little flying pig Pinkie who wish for a white Christmas.
They decide to follow the advice given by the mysterious Black Cat who appears and disappears by magic. Who's the best person to ask for their wish come true? Of course, Santa. So, they embark on a big trip of discovering the true meaning of Christmas.
Eddie and I liked the story and the characters. There is quite a bit of singing going on as well, which I didn't enjoy as much. I do have issues with songs in animation and mostly find them annoying, but Eddie was dancing with the eels and other creatures, so he obviously enjoyed the music.
This classic Christmas story comes from the award-winning creator of the Thomas &Friends TV series Britt Allcroft. If you enjoy watching children's animation either with your kids or even on your own, Mumfie's White Christmas might make a lovely treat for a cold winter afternoon, when it is dark outside.
