fine sequel

After playing for the new born King, little drummer boy Aaron seeks to do more. One of the wise men suggests a new quest. The villagers ignore Simeon who is preaching the word of God. In order to truly spread the news, he has created giant silver bells. Roman soldiers break in and seize the bells. Drummer boy Aaron comes up with a plan to retrieve the bells from the tax collector camp. This is a fine sequel to the Christmas classic. It has the religious and holiday feels. It is sincere and nice.

Not as Good as the first but then again it is a sequel

I HAVE REVIEWED OVER 400 Christmas MOVIES.

BEWARE OF BOGUS REVIEWS. SOME REVIEWERS HAVE ONLY ONE REVIEW. WHEN ITS A POSITIVE REVIEW THAT TELLS ME THEY WERE INVOLVED WITH THE PRODUCTION. NOW I HAVE NO AGENDA! I AM HONEST! I REVIEW Christmas MOVIES AS A WAY TO KEEP TRACK OF WHAT I HAVE SEEN!

The Little Drummer Boy, Book II is a Christmas television special produced in stop-motion animation by Rankin/Bass. As the title suggests, it is a sequel to the 1968 special The Little Drummer Boy. Originally broadcast on NBC on December 13, 1976, it is notably the only Rankin/Bass special to receive an Emmy nomination; it was nominated for the 1977 Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Children's Program.

This special however is not based on the song "The Little Drummer Boy" but it is an original story all on its own! However the story doesn't work all that well.

The special also borrows lyrics from two other Christmas Carols one of them being "Do You Hear What I Hear". That history of that song is actually more interesting that "The Little Drummer Boy Book 2". The song "Do You Hear What I Hear" is a song written in October 1962, with lyrics by No?l Regney and music by Gloria Shayne Baker. The pair, married at the time, wrote it as a plea for peace during the Cuban Missile Crisis. Regney had been invited by a record producer to write a Christmas song, but he was hesitant due to the commercialism of the Christmas holiday. It has sold tens of millions of copies and has been covered by hundreds of artists

Now the special in general is worth watching but I highly doubt most people will go out of their way to see it again upon their initial first viewing.

It is however a great tool to use to help introduce children to the events after the birth of Jesus,

Nice sequel

Rankin/Bass sequel to their 1968 classic The Little Drummer Boy. Greer Garson returns to narrate the story, which has the little drummer boy tasked with rescuing some important silver bells from greedy Roman soldiers. As is usually the case with Rankin/Bass, the stop-motion animation is the best part. It's a lovely-looking special. The voice work and music are also very good. The songs are nice, including "Do You Hear What I Hear" and "The Little Drummer Boy," which plays throughout in the background. There's also a catchy song about money that has the Roman soldiers singing and dancing. Greer Garson recites "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day." It's a decent sequel. Not as powerful or moving as the original, but pleasant and enjoyable for what it is.
