A heartwarming tale about a happy and clueless family pet in a wild Christmas adventure as Jingle the Dog is thrust into the real world.
Jingle the Dog is enjoying his holiday time with the family. He senses danger outside the neighbor’s house from a hungry raccoon and comes to the rescue of the neighbor’s daughter. However, the neighbors see it differently and demand that the dog is sent away.
The wrongfully accused dog is now on his own, looking for ways to survive and interact with the world. Jingle tries playing with people, but they consider him a nuisance. He finds his way to the forest and meets furry friends and creates a new family, but the forest is not without danger of its own – an angry pack of wolves threaten Jingle and his friends.
Beaten and tired, Jingle makes his return home, but he realizes that he’s still not wanted. Jingle encounters another dangerous situation involving an ice hole over a frozen lake. Can Jingle save the day and reunite with his family?
This is an animated cartoon musical short written by Erin and Chris Bishop to original arrangements of holiday classics as never heard before (along with one new Christmas composition), with percussion and string orchestration featuring a Marimba as the primary instrument. Music is written and performed by Chris Bishop.
