HOT FROM FOX...

KICK OFF THE HOLIDAY SEASON WITH TWO ALL-NEW ANIMATED SPECIALS THIS THANKSGIVING ON FOX

"ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS" AND "HAPPINESS IS A WARM BLANKET, CHARLIE BROWN" TO PREMIERE THURSDAY, NOVEMBER 24

This Thanksgiving, FOX dishes out extra helpings of family fun with two all-new animated holiday specials, ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS and HAPPINESS IS A WARM BLANKET, CHARLIE BROWN, premiering Thursday, Nov. 24.

In ICE AGE: A MAMMOTH CHRISTMAS (8:00-8:30 PM ET/PT), America's favorite arctic herd is busy decorating for the holiday season. In his rush to help, SID (John Leguizamo) destroys MANNY's (Ray Romano) favorite decorations. Manny is so upset he convinces Sid he is now on Santa's naughty list. Sid, CRASH (Seann William Scott), EDDIE (Josh Peck) and PEACHES (Ciara Bravo) take off for the North Pole to plead their case to SANTA (Billy Gardell). Meanwhile, Manny, ELLIE (Queen Latifah) and DIEGO (Denis Leary), worry over Peaches' safety and race to find her. Back at the North Pole, Sid and his crew accidentally destroy Santa's Workshop on Christmas Eve, and it's up to these newfound friends to orchestrate a Christmas miracle. The special, directed by Karen Disher, also features the voice talent of Chris Wedge, T.J. Miller and Judah Friedlander.

With over $4 billion in box office, home entertainment and consumer products sales, the "Ice Age" franchise is a perennial hit, and continues to grow with next summer's all-new animated feature "Ice Age: Continental Drift." From Twentieth Century Fox and Blue Sky Studios, the film features new characters voiced by Jennifer Lopez, Wanda Sykes, Keke Palmer, Aziz Ansari and Drake, among others. Share in the all-new adventure as they join the original cast voiced by John Leguizamo, Ray Romano, Seann William Scott, Queen Latifah and Denis Leary. "Ice Age: Continental Drift" arrives in theaters everywhere July 13, 2012 in 3D. In the film, Scrat's nutty pursuit of the cursed acorn, which he's been after since the dawn of time, has world-changing consequences - a continental cataclysm that triggers the greatest adventure of all for Manny, Diego and Sid. In the wake of these upheavals, Sid reunites with his cantankerous Granny, and the herd encounters a ragtag menagerie of seafaring pirates determined to stop them from returning home.

Then, in HAPPINESS IS A WARM BLANKET, CHARLIE BROWN (8:30-9:30 PM ET/PT), the Peanuts gang is back and ready to help LINUS (Austin Lux) break away from his childhood security blanket. The stakes are high as Linus learns his grandmother is coming to visit, and he must decide whether or not to dispose of his most cherished possession. In an effort to help Linus kick his habit, CHARLIE BROWN (Trenton Rogers), LUCY (Grace Rolek) and even SNOOPY pitch in to help. Lucy is quick to attempt her amateur psychiatric skills, while Snoopy employs the age old drag-and-run method. Despite all attempts, Linus eventually learns that security is a valuable quality in life and everyone is entitled to their own version of a security blanket.

Finally, gobble up that last bit of turkey during an encore of THE SIMPSONS (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT). In the now-classic episode, "The Fight Before Christmas," four special holiday-themed tales are told, featuring the guest voices of home design guru Martha Stewart as "Martha Claus" and pop star Katy Perry as herself.
