Main Plot Points:
- Cartoon Network wants to help you ring in the holiday season with the Cartoon Network Holiday Collection DVD, featuring classic Holiday episodes from Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, and Regular Show! As an added holiday gift, the DVD features 2 bonus episodes from Clarence and Steven Universe!
What We Thought:
- What can be said about shows like Adventure Time, The Amazing World of Gumball, and Regular Show that I haven’t said in previous reviews?
- The Cartoon Network Holiday Collection consists of a 2-part Adventure Time holiday episode, an episode of both Gumball and Regular Show, and “bonus episodes” of Clarence and Steven Universe; relative newcomers to Cartoon Network, albeit non-holiday episodes.
- Adventure Time’s episodes are your standard fare that viewers are used to of the series and this holiday special is no exception. This show rarely disappoints with me.
- As for The Amazing World of Gumball, there are some episodes that I end up enjoying more than others, but the one included in this collection is pretty solid. The family hits Santa with their car and the kids try to jog his memory of being Santa Claus.
- Also, Ed Asner plays the role of Santa Claus in The Christmas Special of Regular Show in what ends up being a very good episode of the show.
- The “bonus episodes” of Clarence and Steven Universe just aren’t for me. Since the 4 holiday themed episodes aren’t very long in total run time, these episodes aren’t as much of a bonus as they are needed for value, but I wasn’t particularly fond of these shows.
- Overall, this is a pretty small volume set in time for the holidays. Take from it what you will, but there are better values of these shows in previous releases.
- Bonus Episodes of Clarence and Steven Universe
Notable Cast & Crew:
