For all who love seasonal animated classics, take heart! Hallmark Channel announces the World Premiere of Jingle All the Way, a Hallmark Channel Original Animated Special World Premiere, starring one of Hallmark's most lovable characters, Jingle the Husky Pup, Friday, November 25 (8 p.m. ET/PT, 7C).

This is the first time that Hallmark Channel has ever brought a Hallmark product to life in a full-length entertainment production and it is the first TV experience of its kind. The "Interactive Storybook & Story Buddy," available in Hallmark Gold Crown Stores, is part of a significant partnership from retail to on-air, digital and social media to promote the special.

Hallmark Channel's COUNTDOWN TO CHRISTMAS features more true holiday themed programming than any other network.

In Jingle All the Way, a spirited Husky puppy looking for a home at a Christmas tree farm instantly bonds with a young boy visiting with his parents. As the boy rides away, unable to keep him, the pup escapes and embarks on a snowy journey to find his friend again. Guided by a wise cardinal and the sound of jingling bells, he eventually receives the help he needs from a big man in a red suit just in time for Christmas morning. The animated special offers the first-ever opportunity for viewers to activate the Jingle Interactive Storybook and Story Buddy™ while watching original program content based on the book.
