What’s ‘Freezie Day’ with no food? Our waffle-eared friend counts on Mochi to save the day; watch the puppet-filled live-action/animated special premiering November 23.
Netflix just shared a first-look clip for Waffle + Mochi’s Holiday Feast, premiering November 23. The holiday special continues the adventures of the all-new series that gives kids and families a chance to discover the vibrant culinary world using charming puppetry and CG animation.
In the special, Waffles and Mochi are home for the holidays in the Land of Frozen Food when Steve the Mop calls asking about their holiday traditions. Overeager as always, Waffles makes up a holiday - Freezie Day - and says it is all about the food! Steve invites himself -- and all their friends from the grocery store -- over to celebrate, but Waffles and Mochi have nothing to feed their guests at this impromptu party. Mochi ventures out on MagiCart to gather food for the party while Waffles distracts the guests at home. Hijinks ensue - along with trips to Norway and Hawaii! In the end, Waffles and Mochi learn that holiday traditions are about much more than food -- they're about being together and making memories with the people you love.
