Not as good as the original but still pretty good

The Little Drummer Boy is one of Rankin/Bass' best, and my contender for the most poignant of their specials. So this sequel had a lot to live up to, and while it is not as great it is still pretty good. Much better than Cricket on the Hearth(by far their worst) and The Leprechauns Christmas Gold. The high point is definitely the visuals, which not only look beautiful but are even more accomplished than the original's. The voice acting is also great, Paul Frees is missed but Greer Garson still brings sincerity and warmth to her narration part and Zero Mostel sounds as though he is having a ball as Brutus, who is even more of a villain than Ben. The characters are engaging, and the score is whimsical and fitting with the mood. The writing has heart while not feeling mawkish or over-simplistic. The message is a good one and is affecting. I wouldn't go as far to say actually that there is anything disastrously wrong apart from the pacing being a little on the slow side sometimes, but there were a couple of areas that gave me a mixed reception. A couple of the songs are memorable and well-meaning, but others especially Money, Money, Money don't really do all that much to move the story forward. The actual Little Drummer story is great, and the basics of the story here are fine. It's some of the subplots that don't always seem very focused or entirely related to one another. In conclusion, pretty good, lacking compared to The Little Drummer Boy but a long way from Rankin/Bass' worst. 7/10 Bethany Cox

fine sequel

After playing for the new born King, little drummer boy Aaron seeks to do more. One of the wise men suggests a new quest. The villagers ignore Simeon who is preaching the word of God. In order to truly spread the news, he has created giant silver bells. Roman soldiers break in and seize the bells. Drummer boy Aaron comes up with a plan to retrieve the bells from the tax collector camp. This is a fine sequel to the Christmas classic. It has the religious and holiday feels. It is sincere and nice.

Inferior sequel

The title already gives away that this 22-minute Christmas movie is the sequel to the original "Little Drummer Boy" from almost 10 years earlier. And while that one did not receive any awards recognition, this one here was nominated for an Emmy. Still, it is not as good as the original and not even close in terms of Christmas donkey Nestor, who was released slightly as the 3rd entry to the franchise. I am generally not too big on the animation style of Rankin/Bass and this may be one of the main reasons why I did not enjoy this one here that much, despite Academy Award winner Greer Garson who does a solid job with the narration. It is not a failure, but I did not find it (the film and most of the music) particularly moving, sweet or memorable compared to the other entries. Thumbs down unfortunately, hoped I would like this more and the Roman soldiers certainly did not help.
