Out today people.
Or you can see it split into four episodes,next year on Cartoon Network.

I predict another Oscar for Al Gore.

I have been otherwise mentally occupied in the last week or so, and it is with great shame that I totally forgot that this was released today. To Target!

"Guys! Guys! There's something happening on TV again!"

I dropped the ball on this too.

I may actually have to set foot in a video store, to see if I can find it for rent.

Not bad, but still kind of a letdown. My wife lost interest in it about 2/3 of the way through, then wandered back to watch the ending, about half-interested.

I enjoyed the running gag where they lampooned a barely-disguised Fox network for cancelling the show... I mean, cancelling "Planet Express".

The two musical numbers were surprisingly disappointing.

Ain't easy, expanding a half-hour cartoon to feature length. I could even see the "seams" where they'll be separating it into four episodes for Cartoon Network.

That is probably the nicest thing you could say about those songs, especially the Santa's Workshop number. Egad!

Oh, and that was not Santabot.
(Seriously, they couldn't get John Goodman to come in for a couple hours sometime over the last two years? Gimme a break...)
