Olive the Other Reindeer is a 1999 animated Christmas special based off the book by the same name, and it is wonderful. It may be the best Christmas special ever made. The film follows Olive (voiced by Drew Barrymore), a dog that thinks that Santa asked for her to pull his sleigh after mishearing “all of the other reindeer” as “Olive, the other reindeer.” It follows her adventures to the North Pole with her friend Martini, a sketchy penguin. Meanwhile, the evil postman is trying to stop them from getting to the North Pole to ruin Christmas: he’s a horrible person and everyone knows it.
A running joke in the special is that every character’s name is a pun. Another running joke is that nobody gets the pun when Olive points it out. Seriously, this is a great special. Go watch it. You don’t need to take my opinion on this one, just go get a copy and watch this beautiful masterpiece of a Christmas special.
