Parker Jacobs Statement: “I’m a little nutty about Christmas! I have spent years collecting obscure Christmas legends, songs, and kitsch that all blend into this funny little story that is Santa on a Panda. Similar to our approach with Yo Gabba Gabba!, it all starts with a desire to entertain our own kids, the kids within ourselves, and then share it with the world. I’m thrilled to share this with you. It’s going to be a whole lot of fun.”
