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
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.
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
The movie DVD will be released starting Nov. 25.
