ORLANDO, October 30 /Christian Newswire/ -- Raven Moon Entertainment, Inc. announced today that Gina D's® "Christmas Wish" video that is part of "GINA D'S CUDDLE BUG CHRISTMAS" television special and DVD has been featured on God Tube, the world's fastest growing Christian social network website. Termed as "The Christian Alternative to You Tube," God Tube is growing at a tremendous pace. Recently, Chris Wyatt, CEO and founder of God Tube, contacted Joey DiFrancesco, CEO of Raven Moon Entertainment, and asked if God Tube could showcase many of the GINA D'S KIDS CLUB® G-rated family friendly videos. The answer was "absolutely yes." "Our mission is to give these programs to the world," stated Joey DiFrancesco, and the two of them agreed to work together to showcase Gina D's "Christmas Wish" which will be the first of many videos that will be seen on www.godtube.com.
In addition, "GINA D'S CUDDLE BUG CHRISTMAS"® SPECIAL and DVD got a "5 Star" review from Salvador SeBasco, literary director and host of "The Inside View tm" broadcast and book critic on staff with a CNN affiliate station, KNLE 88 in Austin, Texas.
In his "5 Star" review, Mr. SeBasco states:
Four years ago producers Joey and Bernadette DiFrancesco set out to bring unique meaning back to the Christmas holidays when "Gina D's Cuddle Bug Christmas" was produced. Much like Walt Disney's first Mickey Mouse film, which shows how a now well-evolved vision can become wildly popular, Gina D's Kids Club® fans across the world will savor the delectable treat of this, which is only Episode #2 of the 44 now available to television stations to air. This is why the forward thinking of the producers seems almost prophetic and brilliant because in this episode there is a multi-ethnicity selection for the cast of kids.
From this Christmas special's opening song, called "Christmas Wish," it is easy to realize that the message is a wish for the well-being of all people, not only for the holiday season but also for the whole year. The expressions of love and caring we give each other form a lesson not easy to pull off. Yes, your heart would have to be dead for you not to love this Christmas special. This vintage Gina D's Kids Club® episode will have Disney wondering why the next new building set design does not include Gina D's Kids Club characters.
"Gina D's Cuddle Bug Christmas" will air on the Trinity Broadcasting Network on December 22 at 11 AM PST and four times on the Smile of a Child Network on Christmas Eve Day, December 24th at 10:30 AM and 3:30 PM PST, and Christmas Day, December 25th at 10:30 AM and 3:30 PM PST. Go to www.godtube.com to see Gina D®'s "Christmas Wish" right now. If you somehow miss this Christmas special or for some reason become bah-humbugish around the holiday season, guess what you need? You need to go from Bah-humbugish to CUDDLE-BUG-ISH. The DVD now available for early gift planning is available at the online store at www.ravenmoon.net or your local retail store.
Included in the DVD are three bonus tracks, which are simply delightful: "Sounds of the World," "Counting" and "Sing Your Own Song." It goes to show that from day one, RAVEN MOON ENTERTAINMENT was out to give parents their money's worth and children as much of a lesson as can be packed into a DVD.
I suppose it will eventually be the networks' request each year, one that ranks right up there with the wholesome nature of the popular classic "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," featuring Fred Astaire and Mickey Rooney and directed by Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass."
GINA D'S KIDS CLUB® has won a 2005 Telly Award, a 2005 Kids First! Award, a Communicator Award and a Crystal Award for Excellence in Creativity, Special Effects and Animation. The show has also been approved by Kids First!, the Coalition for Quality Children's Media, and the entire series of television DVDs has been awarded the DOVE FOUNDATION FAMILY SEAL OF APPROVAL.
