Countdown to Christmas: Christmas Comes to Pacland (1982)

Hanna-Barbera figured, if we can turn a video game character into a sentient being, then let's let him meet Santa Claus. Such was the underlying premise behind this entry, Christmas Comes to Pacland, a prime time special spun-off, of course, from Pac-Man, which wasn't exactly chomping down ratings points on Saturday mornings. Thealwayschristmas uploaded this sample to YouTube:



Since Pac-Man was cancelled after its only season, this special didn't see the light of day again until the 90's, when Cartoon Network was launched. Not sure, though, if it will air this year......

Rating: C.
