Prep & Landing: Totally Tinsel Collection Blu-ray Review


Back in 2009 was when we first got to see Wayne and Lanny save the day back when Prep & Landing was first aired on television.  It’s creator Chris WIlliams had the idea to write a modern holiday special that played homage to all the great specials of the past.  When you watch it you’ll see how a great idea can really come together and be something special.  This was followed in 2010 by Operation: Secret Santa and again in 2011 by Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice.  Now all 3 of these and more can be found in the Prep & Landing: Totally Tinsel Collection blu-ray release.

In addition to all 3 specials, you will also get the short Tiny’s Big Adventure where Tiny the elf has to go get Magee some more coffee.  There are also some shorts that will take you through some lessons from the “Kringle Academy” - the place where the elves of Prep & Landing learn and hone their skill and become “the few, the proud, the merry.”  And learn their final test the Tannebaum Trials and how to “... not disrupt the silent night.

Also found on the Blu-ray are some newsreels about events that are going on at the North Pole.  You can also watch some commercials from the North Pole television station that give you some insight into the various products and places you see in the Prep & Landing Specials.  Including one all about Christmas Carol’s the bar featured in Naughty vs Nice.  This all rounds out with some production pieces that were originally shown on television to promote the specials.

Overall this is a very complete collection of the specials, shorts, and other related pieces.  If there’s a piece of the Prep & Landing universe missing on this blu-ray, I don’t know what it is.  Fans of P&L will very likely want to own a copy of this release to help consolidate their collection.
