The Leprechauns Christmas
Gold - Animated Christmas special
produced by Rankin-Bass production that first
aired on the ABC network on December 23, 1981.
Narrated by Art Carney who lent his voice to
Barney Kilakilarney the leprechaun, this
delightful animated puppet adventure told the
story of a lost ship's cabin boy who lands on an
uncharted island and unwittingly releases a
Banshee trapped beneath a evergreen tree that
the boy unearthed to use as a Christmas tree.
The Banshee had been imprisoned by the
Killakilarney leprechauns because she tried to
steal their gold.
With the help of the young cabin boy, the
leprechauns recapture and imprison the Banshee
and thus save the Leprechaun's Christmas Gold.
