  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
When he was an infant, little orphan Buddy managed to make his way from his crib to Santa

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced DVD picture exhibits a great, colorful picture that is perfectly suitable to the light storytelling. The charming costumes are bright and colorful in all the approprate colors for the Christmas season! The picture is sharp and greatly textured into clothing and facial features, and contrast and shadow delineation are well balanced in this light, bright picture. Only minor pixelization is noticed, as edge enhancement, when apparent, is only very slight. (Suzanne Hodges)
