Prep & Landing | Totally Tinsel Collection Review

On November 11th, 2012, you can bring home the modern Christmas classic Prep & Landing: Totally Tinsel Collection on Blu-ray/DVD combo pack. In addition to the original Prep & Landing, this also contains Prep & Landing: Naughty Vs. Nice.

I already own a copy of Prep & Landing on DVD, but I love upgrading my favorites to Blu-ray. It’s worth getting even if you have the DVD so you can get Naughty vs. Nice as well, which is not on the DVD version that came out a year ago.

Prep & Landing Totally Tinsel Collection

Prep & Landing

Wayne has been working in Prep & Landing for 227 years and is looking forward to a big promotion. When he is passed over for his partner, he gets careless on Christmas Eve as he is breaking in his new partner, Lanny. Lanny’s excitement for the position in Prep & Landing and seeing little Timmy excited on Christmas morning opening his presents reminds Wayne that he has the only job he could ever want.

Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice

Wayne and Lanny return in the 2011 follow up to Prep & Landing. Wayne and Lanny must work with an elf from the Coal Elf Brigade, the team in charge of delivering coal to naughty children. After one naughty little girl gets ahold of their Count Calculator, Wayne and Lanny need all the help they can get to get it back. The only problem is that Wayne has to work with his younger brother, Noel. As they complete their mission, the “naughty” child and Wayne both learn a very important lesson about their respective siblings.

My Thoughts

The Prep & Landing specials are the most creative modern Christmas specials in recent history. There is something for everyone to love about them, whether it’s Wayne’s sarcastic sense of humor, the high tech gadgets, the fun call names, or the colorful animation. When I originally saw Prep & Landing, I couldn’t make it through without crying. I loved its message; we can all use a little reminder of what the Christmas spirit is truly about, especially when we get too caught up in worrying about buying presents, snagging the best deals, and planning a huge meal for our entire families.

Bonus Features
