SYNOPSIS: Two Holiday rarities from Canada!
Christmas Martian: Very rare children's film from Canada concerning the adventures of a space alien and two precocious kids. In a small Northern town a large saucer lands and young boy and girl climb aboard. They find a silly alien who turns out to be friendly and goofy. He makes colored candy shoot out of the saucer's portals (see clip below), plays his own version of hockey with some teens, makes the little girl fly, takes them on a trip around the world in his ship and more. Soon the townsfolk and bumbling cops start to notice the weird goings-on. A completely harmless, totally obscure, holiday film safe enough for the whole family.
George and the Christmas Star (animated short): There's quirky animation (from the director of Heavy Metal) and music from Paul Anka, in this fun 80's cartoon. George is tired of his dull Christmas tree toppers and decides he wants a real star. He soon finds himself in space with a friendly robot.
