Subject: Christmas special.

This is an odd one. I am trying to find the name of a christmas special
we saw once or at most twice in the mid to late seventies. The most
telling thing about it was that it was about a christmas tree, who I
believe was small, and there was a song in it that included the refrain,
"But I'ld rather have the minuet, for the clarinet, because it's a
prettier toon."

If you can remember this one, please let me know.



PS. No, I do not want to be reminded about those of you who were not
yet old enough in the mid seventies to have actual memories. :)
