"Santa Bob" is dreaming of a white Christmas, but along with the snow and ice comes an avalanche of problems! In his first-ever ho-ho-ho holiday show, Bob celebrates by trimming the tree, delivering Christmas presents, and enjoying a snowball fight. But when "Big Freeze" hits, Bob and Scoop must snowplow a path to a snowbound Farmer Pickles. Then, Spud is one scared scarecrow when he discovers a mysterious "Snow Monster". (Don't worry - it's only a snow-covered Dizzy!) Finally, Bob and his friends demonstrate the true spirit of the season when they rescue some hungry ducks and homeless hedgehogs. Along the way, Bob and his crew learn that sometimes the best gift is a helping hand from a friend!
Bob the Builder's infectiously optimistic battle cry ("Can we fix it? Yes, we can!") rings truer than ever in a very busy Yuletide in the delightful Bob's White Christmas
. Already committed to play Santa Claus at a children's party, Bob finds that Christmas Eve gets a lot more complicated when freezing temperatures and a blanket of snow arrive. Suddenly, Bob and his crew--Wendy, Scoop, Dizzy, and the others--get an SOS from a snowbound Farmer Pickles, help Spud the scarecrow identify a mysterious "snow monster," and save some stranded critters. There's still time, fortunately, for snowball fights and gift exchanges, but the best part of this holiday is the camaraderie between a great bunch of friends. Keen characterizations and a happy, fluid animation style make Bob the Builder
(seen on Nick Jr.) one of the best children's TV programs around. If anything, this Christmas special has even more of the show's vitality and good cheer. --Tom Keogh
