TV fans will want to sing and dance to Heat Miser and Snow Miser’s infectious musical numbers in A Miser Brothers’ Christmas, a new holiday special featuring the beloved bickering, brotherly duo.
This DVD comes out tomorrow, Oct 6th, 09 and is a must have for this Holiday Season!
The story begins when Santa’s (featuring the voice of Mickey Rooney) chief mechanic, Tinsel, creates a speedy, new high-tech sleigh for Christmas. But what Santa doesn’t know is that North Wind has secretly sabotaged the sleigh in hopes of taking Santa’s place that year. When Santa takes it out for a spin, he gets caught in the cross fire between the feuding Snow Miser and Heat Miser Brothers and his sleigh comes crashing down. North Wind frames the Miser Brothers for Santa’s accident. With Santa stuck in bed with a bad back, everything falls into place for North Wind to slyly come to the rescue as a temporary Santa. But much to his chagrin, Mother Nature punishes the Miser Brothers by forcing them to put their differences aside and fill in for Santa. In between comedic squabbles, the brothers rediscover what it means to be family and along the way, save Christmas for everyone.
A Miser Brothers’ Christmas is an all new original movie that’s available on DVD for the first time. The special originally premiered on ABC Family’s “25 Days of Christmas” television event in 2008. The special aired four times during the holidays and was the highest rated program on ABC Family the day it premiered.
