Canceled Too Soon #129: 'Christmas in Tattertown' (1988)

Ralph Bakshi became an animation legend by directing feature films for adult audiences, like "Fritz the Cat," "Wizards" and "Lord of the Rings." But in 1988 he also directed a pilot episode for a Nickelodeon television series called "Christmas in Tattertown," about a young girl who stumbles into a magical land where everything people ever lost come to life. When here doll Muffet comes to life and turns villainous, our hero tries to save the day by introducing Christmas to the animated civilization.

It's an intriguing anecdote in Ralph Bakshi's career, combing his love of early era animation and chaotic outsider storytelling, but was it really CANCELED TOO SOON? William Bibbiani and Witney Seibold explore this failed experiment in early, original Nickelodeon animation in a Christmas episode of the podcast!
