In this three episode Christmas campaign – a sweet comedic retelling of ‘Twas The Night Before Christmas – Hallmark Channel takes a cheeky liberty and offers Walgreens the opportunity to sponsor Santa Claus on a particularly hard Christmas Eve. As animated by Little Fluffy Clouds the affable and genial St. Nick is up to the challenge in this story told in continuing episodes. SNEEZE, sees Santa almost caught in the act of delivering the gifts and making use of the one-hour pharmacy, while, TREE, has Santa running to the store to replace broken lights, and finally in, PHOTO, Santa is snapped in the act by a little girl in PJ’s and learns to use Walgreens online digital photo service.
Little Fluffy Clouds used a combination of 2D and 3D animation using Illustrator, After Effects, Flash and Maya, along with hand drawn illustrations. Aired Dec 2006 on all Hallmark Channels.
