Countdown to Christmas: The Tiny Tree (1975)

Here's a holiday treat you just don't see too often anymore.

DePatie Freleng produced The Tiny Tree, which bowed in 1975, and was an annual attraction for the remainder of the decade and into the 80's, though I think it went out of circulation by the 90's. It aired in primetime, but I never got to see it, hence, there won't be a rating.

If memory serves, this aired on CBS, which made sense, since one of their stars, Buddy Ebsen (Barnaby Jones) stars here as the voice behind Squire Badger. R & B star Roberta Flack is the featured vocalist, with music composed by the legendary Johnny Marks (Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer).
