Whose Story Is This?
20 February 2002 | by ztonusSee all my reviews

It says that it's Benji's Christmas Story, but he doesn't do nothing in this special! Much of the focus is on Santa, who's going to cancel Christmas because of his broken foot (of course it's not broke). The elves are okay (Needles and Pins are Santa's tailors, of course) but the girl's pretty annoying.

If you're a Christmas Fan( which some people are), you might want to watch it, but if you're a Benji fan, you're going to hate it.
