Disney Tries to Add New Holiday Tradition


prep-and-landingIf anyone can infiltrate the tight-knit world of the classic holiday special, Disney’s got an edge. After all, those mouse ears turn most things to magic.

Just to be sure, they’ve put their new Pixar created holiday half hour on the schedule just after the Charlie Brown Christmas special.

In case you missed the racist blowhard Tennessee mayor’s reminder that the Charlie Brown Christmas special was pre-empted by President Barack Obama’s speech on troop deployment last week, you also missed the news that Prep and Landing was likewise scheduled to debut on Dec. 2.

They’ve both been moved to tonight, with Charlie Brown’s tree making its scraggly debut at 8 p.m. on ABC followed by two elves prepping kids’ homes for a visit from Kris Kringle at 8:30 p.m. Jumping covertly from a sleigh drawn by Dasher’s cousin Thrasher, the two little guys will help land Santa’s sleigh on every rooftop from here to Timbuktu.

And in case you can’t keep the kids up that late, good news. They’ll replay Prep and Landing on Wed., Dec. 16, on ABC.

Will you be watching? Come back and tell us what you thought.
