  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Robbie The Reindeer In Hooves Of Fire is an adorable claymation adventure about a chubby little reindeer who is hopelessly unfit to join Santa

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits delightful claymation images that are sharp and detailed throughout. The color schemes is as vibrant as Christmas, with rich reds, bright greens, and deep blacks. There is a bit of edge enhancement noticed, but nothing that should take away from the adorable story.
