Just in time for the Holidays, Disney’s Prep & Landing Totally Tinsel Collection is now available to own on Blu-ray combo pack and DVD.

I’m a little sad that Disney wasn’t able to do this last year, but the timing just wasn’t right since “Naughty vs. Nice” was just having its network TV debut.  Flash forward a year and we now have both holiday specials (and a bunch of extras) in one convenient collection.

For those who haven’t seen them yet, these are great!

The original Prep & Landing debuted in December of 2009, with the sequel, Naughty vs. Nice, making its initial airing last year.

It’s refreshing to see new Holiday specials on television.  Don’t get me wrong, the “classics” are nice, but when you’ve seen them time and again over the course of about 30 years, it’s nice to get something fresh and new!  Both of these are destined to become new Holiday classics.  So when we look back on Holiday specials in another 30 years, someone can say the same thing about these too.

Disney picked out some perfect voice talent too, with Dave Foley as Wayne, Derek Richardson as Lanny and Sarah Chalke as Magee in both specials.  “Naughty vs. Nice” added the voice talents of Rob Riggle as Noel the Coal Elf and an original song and cameo by singer Grace Potter.  The bonus short “Operation, Secret Santa” adds the voice of Betty White as Mrs. Claus.  Seriously, how can you not agree with Betty White being the perfect voice for Mrs. Claus?

Bonus features are numerous and contain “elf training videos” from the Kringle Academy (for training Prep and Landing elves) a bunch of North Pole TV commercials (the “elf date” one is my favorite) and the animated shorts “Operation, Secret Santa” and “Tiny’s Big Adventure”.

Synopsis: Prep & Landing
On Christmas Eve, a high-tech team of elves from an elite unit known as ‘Prep & Landing’ ensures homes around the world are prepared for Santa’s visit. But when two hilarious little elves face unexpected challenges and are pushed to their limits, it’ll take a great big effort to save the season. Enjoy a heartwarming holiday classic sure to make everyone’s Christmas list!

Synopsis: Prep & Landing: Naughty vs. Nice
The outrageous yuletide adventures of Christmas elves Lanny and Wayne continue in this totally tinsel adventure that reminds us there’s room for everyone on the ‘nice’ list. Santa’s stealthiest little elves must race to recover classified North Pole technology, which has fallen into the hands of a computer-hacking naughty kid, in an effort to stop Christmas from descending into chaos. Bring the family together for a comical adventure that puts the Ho, Ho, Ho in your Holidays!
