Web Animation Watch: Christmas Special
Have you ever thought about the lyrics of the song Twelve Days Of Christmas? Like really thought about them? That is the inspiration behind this fantastic short from Anomaly that takes the song and spins the disturbing tale of the poor woman who receives all these unsolicited gifts from her true love. Made in a fantastic style and with a wicked sense of humour, this is a real Christmas treat. Contains adult humour and language.

We probably don't even need to tell you that the new Simon's Cat festive animation Little Boxes is adorable and funny, do we? You know the drill by now. Still, even by the extremely high standards of this series, the "awww" factor is high with this one!
You can also watch the complete Simon's Cat Christmas collection!
Lilly and The Snowman is actually a commercial (made for Cineplex last year by Hornet Films) but it's also thoroughly adorable and really rather lovely. And very appropriate for this time of year!
A complete and utter change of pace now... in this hilarious spoof movie trailer from the team at Blue Zoo. You'd better beware.. because Santa Clause is coming to town. And he's not happy!

Merry Christmas Everyone! WAW Will be back in the new year!
