Nestor was a Donkey who didn't laugh or played, Nestor had strange long ears, even for a donkey. Ears that reached to the
ground and you can trip over them. The other animals would tease him, saying there's nothing he can do.
But when Nestor was thrown out intot he snow, his Mother saved him from the bitter cold at a cost most dear. A Charub
appears to tell Nestor that he was destined for greatness and his ears is what will make him great. Will this prophercy come
I liked Nestor, he was a misfit like Rudulph. He finds friends in a chubby Charub and perhaps finds a places in the world.
I kind of wish it was an hour instead of thirty minutes. But what can you do, I give NESTOR...9 STARS
I agreed, Nestor was based on a song by Gene Autry a long time ago. But like Rudolph and Frosty, Nestor is a story that can
stand the test of time. I give Nestor, 9 STARS as well.
ON THE POSITIVE SIDE (+ HITS):
+ STOP MOTION (The animagic as they call it is just great)
+ STORY (A story based on a song by Gene Autry works)
+ VOICE OVER (The voice over cast did a great job)
+ MUSIC (The music was great, like all Rankin and Bass stuff)
ON THE NEGATIVE SIDE (- MISSES):
- SHORT (At around thirty minutes, the story is a little short)
- REUSED CHARACTERS (The other Charubs look alike HAPPY THE BABY NEW YEAR from RUDOLPH'S SHINY NEW YEAR)
- RELGIOUS (If you aren't very relgious or aren't a Relgion that celebrates Christmas, this isn't the TV special for you)
