Earlier this year, two massively-successful animated films—Frozen and the Lego Movie—were released on home video. These titles and many others are well-known from the world of animation, but there are others that are much more obscure.
"The Christmas Tree" was co-production between Brazil and the USA, and goes back to 1991.
In the film, an orphanage is run by a woman who tricks the mayor--who pays her money--into thinking she's kind, when she does the bare minimum for the kids in her care, and all the kids have is a tree, that is until an assistant arrive.
This special, which clocks in at less than 45 minutes, is known for its mixed-quality voice acting, with some kids sounding like teenagers, others with no emotion.
There are also odd moments like the mayor simply paying the head of the orphanage with bags of money, and no, it isn't Scrooge McDuck. The ending of the special features, get this, Santa Claus using lightning to strike the villain, which reforms her.
