Countdown to Christmas: Jingle Bell Rock (1995)

There's a reason why DIC's 1995 Christmas special, Jingle Bell Rock, hasn't seen the light of day since its initial airing on ABC.

The program purports to tell the story of an elf who supposedly wrote the song, which has been recorded by artists as diverse as Bobby Helms and Hall & Oates, among others, and brings it to the attention of a record executive (Milton Berle).

To think that 31 years earlier, one elf wanted to be a dentist. At least there's some improvement in career dreams, but not much.

Rating: C.
