A pre-Saturday Night Live Gilda Radner and Dan Aykroyd appear in the Canadian animated TV special A Gift of Winter. Actually they don't really appear, but instead provide voices for the leading characters. This 30-minute bit of whimsy centers around Mr. Winter, who promises a fluffy snowfall. When he doesn't deliver, the locals take matters in their own hands. A Gift of Winter was produced by Rankin-Bass, the same folks responsible for such holiday perennials as Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and The Little Drummer Boy.
