Best Holiday Show....Ever

A Wish for Wings That Work was a story by Berkeley Breathed published in 1991 and made into an animated special that same year. It was only shown once on TV and had characters made famous from Breathed's Bloom County characters, including Opus the Penguin, Bill the Cat, to name just a couple.

The gist: Opus the Penguin wants to have wings that "work" other words, allow him to fly. Santa teaches him a lesson of great importance by the end of the show.

It was FINALLY released on DVD last year (2007), but to find it will probably require an internet search as stores in the US only carry the standard boring holiday DVDs.
