I'm trying to remember an animated film I saw as a child, but the details are so fuzzy I only remember for certain these following details:
- The movie was definitely animated. I'm fairly certain it was 2d and it was older-- ie, 90's or earlier. When I was a kid but while most cartoons aside from Saturday morning and The Disney Afternoon were rerun from earlier decades (and I didn't have the Disney Channel). I highly doubt it was original programming.
- The antagonist was trying encase everything in "gluestick." This amounted to everything being frozen in solid clear cubes.
- The antagonist's intentions were good; he was just trying to protect things but was too stupid/deluded to realize how bad his idea actually was.
I think also that it was a Christmas movie, that the protagonist was a girl and that the antagonist was a wolf or something. I just seem to remember presents being frozen in the "gluestick," and something about how the antagonist was just trying to keep children from breaking their toys.
So yeah basically a cartoon wolf tries to save Christmas by making toys unbreakable, without realizing that his process renders them impossible to play with. I think he accidentally "gluesticks" the little girl before realizing his mistake. I want to say it was a Chuck Jones film from the 70's but that might just be the memories of How the Grinch Stole Christmas creeping in.
