Special Delivery - Water Babies

When a 12-year-old chimney sweep is wrongfully blamed for being a thief, he makes a run for it and ends up jumping into a violent river. There he encounters a civilization of anthropomorphic underwater creatures. Before he can return to the surface and clear his name, however, he must help rescue his new friends, the Water Babies, from their nemesis. Featured voices include those of James Mason, Bernard Cribbins and Tommy Pender. The film starts and ends similarly to the book, though in the book Tom actually dies, and is only allowed above the sea on a temporary basis. The movie also adds a whole new subplot, involving a Killer Shark, an Electric Eel and the mythical Kraken, who decides whether or not Tom can return to the surface. There are also several invented characters, which Tom befriends on his quest: Jock, a Scottish lobster, Terence, an effeminate star struck Seahorse, and Claude, a foppish French swordfish.

R.I.P. Grizzly Adams, You Will Be Greatly Missed :(

Press Release:
Dan Haggerty, a beloved Father and friend, has died at 4:30 this morning at St Joseph Hospital in Burbank, CA surrounded by his family that loved him. He had fought a long hard battle with cancer of the spine that was discovered in August of this year.
Dan was a beloved award winning actor in dozens of films and TV roles, but he will be remembered by millions of fans as the man who made Grizzly Adams famous. All the awards pale in comparison to his huge laugh and wonderful sense of humor that made everyone laugh with him. He would light up any room he entered. He loved life, loved his family, loved his friends and fans. The last words I heard him say were "I love you."
Terry Bomar
There will be private services for the family and public service later to be determined.

Our hearts are deeply saddened by the passing of Dan Haggerty. Dan was an incredible talent with a huge, loving spirit that brought happiness to millions of people. Our condolences go out to his family and management. Dan, you will be missed.

Special Delivery – The Velveteen Rabbit

**Please Note - I do not know if this is the one that aired on Nickelodeon but it is from the '80's and it's full length so this one will have to have to.**

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Velveteen Rabbit (or How Toys Become Real) is a children's book written by Margery Williams (also known as Margery Williams Bianco) and illustrated by William Nicholson. It chronicles the story of a stuffed rabbit and his desire to become real through the love of his owner. The book was first published in 1922 and has been republished many times since.

Show Title Needed

Show Title Needed

This post came from Mattniss Empowered on the Nickelodeon’s Special Delivery Community on Facebook. Can anyone help him out? Anyone know the name of this program or if he would be able to watch it online somewhere?

Thank you in advance,

I've been trying to locate a movie that I saw back in the 1980's on Special Delivery (I think). It was a Canadian Christmas movie and the plot revolved around an old man telling his grandson about this little lead soldier he got for Christmas one year. It flashed back to when he was a child and the Christmas he got it. There was a drunken uncle, a Christmas play (where the boy had to play Mary), and some other situations. I didn't really appreciate it then, but I think I would now. Any thoughts on what the title was?
