All Rise...

Judge David Johnson wants to see a reality show where Babe marries Olivia.

Editor's Note

Our reviews of Olivia (1981) (published June 20th, 2003), Olivia (2009) (published September 2nd, 2009), and Olivia: Princess for a Day (published September 4th, 2011) are also available.

The Charge

Oink.

The Case

Nickelodeon's charming little slice of porcine animation is given a Christmas-themed collection and, thankfully, there are no episodes that deal with the awkward question over holiday ham and bean suppers. Four episodes, each episode chopped into two small tales:

• "Olivia Claus/Olivia and the Family Photo"
Olivia looks for her lost doll and brings season's greetings in July.

• "Olivia Makes a Wedding Gift/Olivia Makes Magic"
Olivia, um, makes a wedding gift and Olivia's brother Ian desperately searches for his sister when she makes herself disappear.

• "Olivia's Ice Spectacular/ Olivia's Snow Day"
Olivia puts on her own skating show in the backyard and Olivia meets the Abominable Snowman.

• "Olivia and the Babies/ Olivia's Good Luck"
Olivia plays mommy and later, Olivia goes on the cookie-selling offensive.

A nice little show, featuring nice little characters and a nice animation scheme. You may not be willing to confront the looming holiday season already, but this a nifty collection of low-impact, inoffensive cartooning.

The DVD: Full frame, 2.0 stereo, and a bonus episode.

The Verdict

Not Guilty.

Did we give Olivia: Merry Christmas, Olivia a fair trial? yes / no
