About the Show
How Murray Saved Christmas is a one-hour animated Christmas special that turns all other holiday specials on their heads. From multiple Emmy®-winning writer-producer Mike Reiss (The Simpsons) comes this twisted tale based on his best-selling children's book.
The story begins in Stinky Cigars, the secret town where all the holiday characters live, from the famous (Santa and the Easter Bunny) to the obscure (Labor Day Amos and Arbor Day Aardvark). Everyone's happy in Stinky Cigars - except Murray Weiner, the grumpy owner of Murray's Holiday Diner.
But when Santa is knocked out cold by an experimental toy - the Jack-in-the-Boxer - it's up to Murray to save Christmas - which he does, in a weirdly wonderful way. He even brings toys to the naughty kids!
This hour of songs, pop culture references, smart jokes and silly slapstick features the vocal talents of Jason Alexander, Sean Hayes, Dennis Haysbert, and Jerry Stiller as Murray. The Emmy®-winning team behind Futurama provides the gorgeous animation.
