The Rufus Project Irredeemable Christmas Special – We Wish You A Turtle Christmas (1994)

It’s that jolly time of year when Kristian and Trevor delve into the murky depths of yuletide specials and give themselves the treat of not having to redeem them!

After watching The Star Wars Holiday Special, Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever, and the He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special where could we possibly go?  How about into the sewers apparently for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle atrocity, We Wish You a Turtle Christmas!

We also determine the most, and least redeemable movies from season 4 of The Rufus Project and hint at some upcoming awesomeness.

Happy Holidays and enjoy!
