Disney has loaded the Blu-ray with special features. These tend to be of the EPK-style interview, but they do still provide some illumination into what took place behind the scenes (but, as with the sequel, some of it is undercut hearing the same things more than once). More interesting to the younger set will be the various intra-fictional world Prep & Landing commercials and news pieces. And, even better than those are the actual Prep & Landing shorts, Operation: Secret Santa and Tiny's Big Adventure. A DVD is also included
One thing that neither special lets the audience down with is the presentation. The Blu-ray is absolutely fantastic in terms of both the visuals. Every detail is well considered here, even if its just soot coming off of a coal elf, forgive us, it brings the holidays to life. You will find yourself immersed visually and aurally in the world of Prep & Landing, whether you're in the control room back on the North Pole, on Santa's sleigh, or with Lanny and Wayne fending off the evils of your average suburban home. At least, you'll be as aurally immersed as with any television show — don't expect it to sound like a 100 million dollar blockbuster and you won't be disappointed. The 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track uses the surrounds for effects and everything is crisp and clear, it just isn't quite as full as other presentations.
In the end, Naughty vs. Nice is a let down being the first Prep & Landing sets the bar far too high. It is a special created without, it seems, the thought of a sequel coming down the line. Said sequel isn't so terribly bad as it is astoundingly mediocre. The original though deserves a place on your shelf alongside Christmas classics like Rudolph, 'Twas the Night Before Christmas, and The Year Without a Santa Claus. Naughty vs. Nice is more of a Frosty's Return or Rudolph's Shiny New Year – your Christmas specials thirst can be slaked without seeing it.
