229: Just Sing A Christmas Song, And Keep On Singing All Season Long. (Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas)

Happy Leon Day, Christmas Fanatics! We are officially halfway to the big day itself! As of tomorrow, we will be closer to Christmas 2021 than Christmas 2020, and if that's not something for us to celebrate and get excited about, we don't know what is!

As a special treat to celebrate the occasion, Julia, Thom, and Anthony gather around their mics to discuss the 2014, American, stop-motion animated, Christmas musical television special, "Elf: Buddy's Musical Christmas"! How does this adaptation of the Broadway musical that adapted the beloved movie that remains number one on Tis the Podcast's Christmas canon list four-years in hold up to the original story? Is it filled with holiday cheer, or does this sap all joy from the proceedings? Are Jim Parsons and Mark Hamill able to hold a candle to the performances of Will Ferrell and James Caan? The answers to these questions, and much more, can be found in this extraordinarily fun episode! So blast that air-conditioning to simulate that 'Ber Month weather, sit back, and enjoy this festive treat! 

And if you can't get enough Christmas during the summer, be sure to check our Patreon (www.tisthepodcast.com/patreon) for more bonus content, plus the next installment of Anthony's audiobook, "Another Christmas Story" which will drop in your feeds on Thursday - this week, read by the awesome Jay Skipworth of "Film Strip Podcast"!
