Give your family a holiday to remember with this unforgettable story about the true meaning of Christmas from the animation powerhouse Rankin/Bass (Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer)! After Sister Theresa (voiced by Angela Lansbury) rescues an orphan shepherd boy from a lightning storm, she lovingly nurses him back to health. However, the boy suffered injuries during the storm and wakes up blind and discouraged in his new surroundings. With Sister Theresa’s help, the pint-sized shepherd with the king-sized heart learns that seeing goes deeper than what your eyes show you. Together, they discover that unconditional love can overcome any obstacles.
If you enjoy the classic “cartoons” from when you were a child (70/80’s) growing up, then this is a classic to add to your Christmas collection. My little one enjoyed watching theses animated characters tell the story of Christmas. We definitely recommend this classic family favorite!
