A Wish for Wings that Work
Another favorite Holiday Special of mine that I simply must watch every year. I can’t believe they don’t show it on TV anymore or that most people have no idea what I’m talking about when I mention it. It’s all based around Opus the Penguin’s obsession with flight, which leads to him writing a letter to Santa asking him for wings that actually work. It’s a great story with a good moral and lots of laughs.
I searched and searched for a single moment from this short special that I could call my favorite, but I just could not pick one. (Though the scene in chapter two when the Kiwi at the Flightless Bird Support Group is ranting about his wife Delores leaving him for an Albatross ranks pretty high.) So I posted the whole show, divided into three chapters less than 10 minutes each. If you have the time, watch it. You won’t be disappointed.
