In the Disney Pixar animated TV special, "A Finding Nemo Christmas," Nemo and Marlin prepare for an undersea holiday celebration. Dory, Bruce, Anchor and Chum are at the helm of a major gathering for "caroling in the coral." Everyone is excited except for Peach the Starfish. Peach just isn't a good singer, and after hearing jokes from the rest of the former "Tank Gang, " the already touchy starfish is sent over the edge. She wants nothing to do with the holiday festivities. Luckily, Nemo finds a way to include her---by putting her on the top of the reef's "tree" as the "star" and the center of attention.
"A Finding Nemo Christmas" provides a fresh twist---computer animated, but with a paper-cut animation look (sort of a Christmas card come to life).
Who better to "star" in a Nemo Christmas story than a sulking Starfish?
OK, so I made all this up, based on this artwork:
This is the Holiday 2003 cover for The Disney Catalog. The artist for this charming piece of art is unfortunately uncredited. I love it, and think it could be the basis for a very unconventional TV special.
