Countdown to Christmas: Little Drummer Boy-Book 2 (1976)

Eight years after the original adaptation of the classic carol, Rankin-Bass decided to create a sequel to The Little Drummer Boy.

Book II continues the story of Aaron, the young drummer from the original special. To be perfectly honest with you, I didn't even know they made a sequel until it began airing on cable some years later. ABC Family (which changes its name to Freeform next month----don't ask) holds the rights, as you can probably tell.

I didn't see enough to merit a rating.

Merry Christmas.

It's not bad, Zero Mostel voices the villain

So I had heard. I do remember that Greer Garson was brought back as the narrator, too.
