Prep and Landing has become our family’s holiday must see show and now it’s on DVD! Watch it once and I bet you’ll be rushing out to buy a few to add to your holiday gift list, even if it’s so you can pop it in the DVD player when you visit to share the laughter and fun. Kinda selfish, but they’ll get to keep it when you’re gone.
Prep and Landing first premiered in November of 2009 on TV and won an Emmy for Outstanding Animated Program in 2010 and was TV’s #1 holiday special. It’s good to know we’re not alone in our love of this show. Now that Prep and Landing is on DVD it can be watched any time during the holiday season, instead of waiting for it to be scheduled.
Story of Prep and Landing
Disney’s Prep and Landing offers something new and funny in holiday specials. The main character is an elf named Wayne (Dave Foley), who is a part of an elite team of elves that prepares each home for Santa’s landing. After 227 years as part of the team, Wayne is expecting his well deserved promotion to Director of Naughty List Intelligence. Wayne learns that he’s not only been passed over, but that an elf that he trained is getting the job he thought he’d get. Color him red, as in angry.
Wayne is then partnered with a rookie elf, Lanny, doing the same job. But, when a big storm hits and may prevent Santa from missing out on delivering to children’s homes, Wayne realizes that his job is very important. He works together with Lanny and helps to get the job done. The animation is adorable. The jokes are hilarious and you’ll want to watch it again and again.
Watch out for funny lines by reindeer, elves and others. And definitely watch the features:
