Nickelodeon is Debuting a New Animated Movie to Celebrate Christmas

I always enjoy watching holiday themed television shows and movies between Thanksgiving and Christmas so the news that Nickelodeon is debuting a brand new original animated TV movie that puts a fun twist on this season was nice to know about. ALBERT is the story of a tiny Douglas fir tree who goes on a journey to become the city’s most famous Christmas tree ever. Premiering Friday, Dec. 9, at 7:00 p.m. (ET/PT), the one-hour, CG-animated holiday tale stars the comedic voice talent of Bobby Moynihan (Saturday Night Live) in the title role along with a supporting cast that includes Sasheer Zamata (Saturday Night Live), Judah Friedlander (30 Rock) and Rob Riggle (21 Jump Street).

Albert has big dreams of becoming Empire City’s most famous Christmas tree. When the search for this year’s tree is announced, Albert believes he has found his calling and hits the road with his two best friends, Maisie (Zamata), the persistently positive palm tree, and Gene (Friedlander) the abrasive and blisteringly honest weed, to fulfill his destiny. With a few prickly situations along the way, and Cactus Pete (Riggle) out to stop him, Albert learns the true meaning of Christmas. The hour-long TV movie will also feature two original songs, “The Best Thing That Can Happen to Christmas” and “Christmasiest Christmas,” performed by the voice cast.

In addition to being able to watch the movie on the Nickelodeon cable network, ALBERT will also be available on and the Nick App, as well as available as a digital download on platforms including iTunes, Amazon, Xbox, Google Play, Vudu, Playstation, and Nick On Demand. In addition, an illustrated adaptation by Random House Children’s Books, Albert: The Little Tree With Big Dreams, is currently available.
