BURBANK, Calif. --(BUSINESS WIRE)-- ABC Family and Build-A-Bear Workshop® are coming together to create a little holiday "hoofla" this season as the network debuts an animated special that marks the first time in the retailer's 12-year history that its plush animals are brought to life on television. "Holly and Hal Moose™: Our Uplifting Christmas Adventure," a one-hour feature movie, makes its nationwide premiere on ABC Family on Tuesday, Nov. 24 at 7:00 p.m. EST/PST (with an encore presentation on Saturday, Nov. 28 at 10:00 a.m. EST/PST). The television special is based on a book and series of webisodes that introduced Holly and Hal Moose last year and captured their holiday antics, powerful imaginations and love of adventure.

In addition, an exclusive theme song, "When You Dream," was created for the movie by Tena Clark, award-winning music producer, song writer and CEO/chief creative officer of DMI Music & Media Solutions.
