20. Donkey’s Caroling Christmas-tacular (2011)

Shrek is undoubtedly one of the biggest animated franchises in history, spawning so many films and spinoffs it’s hard for fans everywhere to keep track of it all. For those who may have missed a certain holiday-themed singalong short video special from DreamWorks animation, luckily for them, Netflix has the exciting endeavor for subscribers to enjoy this Yuletide season. Donkey’s Caroling Christmas-tacular which has everyone’s favorite characters singing some of the hilarious versions of some memorable Christmas jams. Shrek Fiona, Pinnochio, Donkey, Puss in Boots, Cookie, and more are all ready to into the spirit of the season, and viewers will be too once this show gets going.

Christmas is finally here, and Donkey thinks the best thing to do is sing Christmas carols, so that’s exactly what happens. The four-legged lovable loudmouth sing “ It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year,” while Shrek, Fiona, and the rest of the ogres sing a very ogre-inspired version of “Jingle Bells.” Puss in Boots offers an interesting melody titled “Fleas Navidad.” Then to end things off, everyone sings “Fairy Tale Rock” instead of “Jingle Bell Rock.” Donkey’s Caroling Christmas-tacular is so good; there is a good chance kids will want to listen to it again and again until Santa comes down the chimney.
