New York, NY (October 9, 2016) - Crackle, Sony's free streaming service, today announced that their Emmy-nominated original stop-motion comedy series, "SuperMansion," will kick off the holiday season with an original half-hour special, "SuperMansion: War On Christmas" premiering Thursday, December 8th.

"SuperMansion: War On Christmas" focuses on a dysfunctional group of self-righteous superheroes, The League of Freedom, who can't agree on anything, but must band together to save Christmas when an interstellar imp, Mr. Skibumpers (Jim Parsons), unleashes a real-life Santa Claus (Gary Anthony Williams) who experiences an existential crisis. Ultimately, the team comes to understand that their differences of opinion are what the holiday spirit is all about.
