Watch The Gruffalo online in these video clips; The Gruffalo aired December 9 as part of ABC Family’s 25 Days of Christmas.
Watch The Gruffalo online video below for clips from the British TV special based on the classic children’s book by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.
The Gruffalo is about a mouse in search of a nut in the woods, who must outwit predators he encounters along the way: a fox, an owl and a snake.
The Gruffalo vocal talent is top-notch: Robbie Coltrane as the Gruffalo; Helena Bonham Carter as the mother squirrel, Rob Brydon as the Snake; James Corden as the Mouse; John Hurt as the Owl and Tom Wilkinson as the Fox.
The Gruffalo doesn’t really scream Christmas or holiday, but the animation is adorable and the story is no doubt a favorite to kids and adults alike. The Gruffalo debuted in the United Kingdom in 2009.
Sadly, The Gruffalo isn’t on the ABC Family 25 Days of Christmas schedule again, nor is it available on DVD in the US. I can only hope it becomes available soon on DVD because this is a great family film to own.
