151: Ears, Nestor. (Nestor, The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey)

This week, Julia, Thom, and Anthony travel all the way back to Bethlehem, courtesy of Rankin/Bass' 1977 classic, Nestor, The Long-Eared Christmas Donkey! This Christmas special also marks the elves' second foray into the niche genre of films that cover the Nativity Story from the point of view of an animal who was there. So is this another typical Rankin/Bass episode with Anthony on one side of the fence, and Thom and Julia on the other side? Or can little Nestor, with his long ears and gentle eyes, convince one of the Tulsans to enjoy a Rankin/Bass classic? Settle in with your favorite holiday drink, relax, and find out!
