Annabelle's Wish


Christmas film about a boy named Billy who lost his parents prematurely, consequentially went mute, and lives with his grandfather, although one of his aunts seeks to gain custody of him. Meanwhile, the eponymous calf is born, and Santa Claus gives her and the other barnyard animals the gift of speech during Christmas, with Annabelle yearning to fly like Santa's reindeer. There are some decent twists throughout the special, and it's definitely one of my favorites, although as with most animated Christmas specials, artistic license is taken with reindeer, which in reality have moose-like snouts rather than button noses.
