Christmas Cartoons 3

Another favorite Christmas themed cartoon of mine is a quite recent one.
Powerpuff Girls: 'Twas the Fight Before Christmas is a Cartoon Network special from a few years ago. I really love the design of the early CN cartoons.
The story happens in Townsville on Christmas Eve when rich, nasty, bratty Princess Morbucks is tired of receiving coal from Santa Claus and ends up switching Santa's Naughty and Nice lists around so that she is the only "nice" child in the world this Christmas.
The only present she's ever wanted is to be a Powerpuff Girl herself and she gets her wish. The original Powerpuff Girls discover her plan and the 4 girls have a race/battle to Santa's Workshop to warn Santa of his mistake.
There is a lot of action and the portrayal of Santa Claus always makes me laugh.
True, the whole concept of the story revolves around the message "gimme, gimme gimme" with no family togetherness at all, but it's still a great little story.You can find this great holiday special on DVD from Warner Home Video!
