Build-A-Bear-Workshop: Holly and Hal Moose movie premieres Nov. 24 on ABC FamilyMonday, November 23, 2009
As we teeter on the cusp of celebrating family togetherness, Thanksgiving feasts, and elastic waist pants, it's pretty clear that Christmas is right around the corner.
ABC Family and Build-A-Bear Workshop came together to create some pre-holiday "hoofla" with the nationwide premiere of an animated special, Holly and Hal Moose: Our Uplifting Christmas Adventure, the first movie ever for the 12-year old retailer.
The one-hour feature movie is based on a book and webisode series that introduced Holly and Hal Moose last year, and will make ts nationwide debut on ABC Family on Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 7:00 p.m. ET/PT, with an encore presentation on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 10 a.m. ET/PT.
Post-movie, families can recreate the movie by making their own Holly and Hal stuffed animals and dressing them in new signature outfits and accessories.
Build-A-Bear Workshop will also introduce Lil' Hal, a rogue robot in Santa's workshop turned Holly's loveable sidekick. Merchandise is available at Build-A-Bear Workshop stores and online.
The movie DVD will be released starting Nov. 25.
