    A good pre-Millennium holiday special created by Matt Groening.

      I remember that. I can't believe Matt Groening created that.

        I always liked this special. I didn't know it was made by Matt Groening until a few years after I first saw it. I really like the style of animation and the guy who voiced Willy in the simpsons did a great job voicing the postman.

              It is that old already?! I remember not being too into it considering I was finishing middle school. Maybe I would have paid attention if I knew Matt Groening created it. I was at my peak of uber Simpsons fandom.

                  Matt Groening created this? I never knew that.

                  I remember seeing this on Nickelodeon sometime I think in 2001. At first I didn't think I'd like it, but I found it to be a pretty decent Christmas special.

                    Never knew about it. Funny thing, though. My aunt told me a story back about 1992, about a coworker of hers who had read the story of Rudolph to her 4 year-old daughter. After the story, the daughter asked about what had happened to Olive. The mother said "Who's Olive?" The girl said "Olive, the 'other' reindeer."

                        Well, what about Dan Castenella as that insane postman? He was pretty funny.
