Ice Age ChristmasA perfect family gift for the holidaysICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS, now available from Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and features the original voice talents of Ray Romano, Queen Latifah, John Leguizamo, Denis Leary and Sean William Scott.  Available for a low price ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS arrives on single disc DVD and a Blu-ray, DVD and digital copy combo pack with extra features, making it a great holiday stocking stuffer for the whole family to enjoy.

In ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS, America’s favorite arctic herd is busy decorating for the holiday season.  In his rush to help, Sid (John Leguizamo) destroys Manny’s (Ray Romano) favorite decorations.  Manny is so upset he convinces Sid he is now on Santa’s naughty list.  Sid, Crash, Eddie and Peaches take off for the North Pole to plead their case to Santa.  Meanwhile, Manny, Ellie and Diego, worry over Peaches’ safety and race to find her.  Back at the North Pole, Sid and his crew accidentally destroy Santa’s Workshop on Christmas Eve, and it’s up to these newfound friends to orchestrate a Christmas miracle.

Our Take: If you have reading my reviews, you know that I love holiday cartoons. While I still remain partial to the classics, i like watching all the new shows that come out. I just received this this week and have already seen it twice. All my kids watched this with me and really enjoyed it.

Take a Look Back at Previous Ice Age Shorts 

Can’t get enough of Manny, Sid, Diego and all other the other lovable prehistoric animals in the Ice Age series? Luckily, you can get yourIce Age fix before Ice Age: Continental Drift comes out next year! Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas is the newest addition to the hilarious bunch of Ice Age short films. To celebrate its release, this feature will take a look back at the other great Ice Age short films.

Gone Nutty

 Gone Nutty is a 2002 Ice Age short, featuring the lovable character Scrat (voiced by Chris Wedge). In this short film, Scrat tries (unsuccessfully) to hoard yet another acorn, but unintentionally ends up turning his entire acorn stock into an avalanche, which sends him tumbling to the snow below and destroys some of his prized acorns. The force of his acorn avalanche also causes continental drift, which shapes the Earth’s continents. This adorable short film was nominated for the 2004 Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

 No Time for Nuts

The 2006 Ice Age short film, No Time for Nuts, also stars the beloved Scrat. In this short, Scrat stumbles upon a time machine, which transports one of his acorns. Scrat becomes angered and tries to punch the time machine, only to accidentally send himself to the Middle Ages! After an attack from some archers, Scrat is able to transport himself and his acorn to many places throughout history, including Ancient Rome, the RMS Titanic, the first Ice Age film, the French Revolution, Benjamin Franklin’s famous kite experiment, Michelangelo’s David, a wormhole, and the future. This short film was nominated for the 2007 Academy Award for Animated Short Film.

 

Surviving Sid

     Surviving Sid is a 2008 Ice Age short that stars Sid the Sloth (voiced by John Leguizamo). Sid takes a group of school children on a camping trip and – in typical Sid fashion – it ends badly. When trying to pick a flower, Sid accidentally starts a chain reaction wherein a tree falls and hits a rock, which hits larger rocks, until a large iceberg is hit. This leads to the creation of the Grand Canyon, and to traumatizing the young campers, who end up tying Sid up.

Scrat’s Continental Crack-up

         The two-part short film Scrat’s Continental Crack-up was released in  2010 and 2011 (parts one and two, respectively). In this short film, Scrat is again looking for a place to safely store his acorn, this time atop an ice cap. He somehow manages to crack the ice cap and break the mountain below, and falls into the rift, traveling past all of Earth’s layers to the inner core! Scrat makes the core spin, which breaks Pangea into continents and creates new life. Scrat also alters our world by accidentally creating a Scrat Sphinx, and Scrat faces on Mount Rushmore. In the end, Scrat is discharged from the core and lands on a piece of ice, which breaks and separates him from his precious acorn.

 Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas

      Ice Age: A Mammoth Christmas is this year’s must-see holiday special! Spend the holidays with your favorite prehistoric friends as they try to save Christmas for the whole world! After accidentally destroying Santa’s workshop, the animals must work together to save Christmas for everyone. Ray Romano, John Leguizamo, Queen Latifah, Denis Leary, and Seann William Scott all lend their voices to this hilarious tale of a group of friends out to save the holiday season.
