The animated special, titled “The Missing Christmas Mustache,” extends the animated introduction that accompanied Season 2, Episode 4 “Carol of the Bells,” which acted as the show’s Christmas-themed episode. Instead of the traditional intro for the series, that episode saw an animated version play, and it looks like the folks behind the hit series extended that into a full special short.
You can check out the new Ted Lasso animated Christmas short below:
The short animated feature sees the regular cast lend their voices to the cast, with Jason Sudeikis (Ted Lasso), Hannah Waddingham (Rebecca), Brendan Hunt (Coach Beard), Jeremy Swift (Higgins), Juno Temple (Keeley), Brett Goldstein (Roy Kent), Phil Dunster (Jamie), and Nick Mohammed (Nate) all appearing in the Claymation special.
