T.I. is pretty highly regarded around these parts. The thuggish rapper turned family man is pretty appealing. And as we speculated, he is one of few positive representations of black fatherhood on television right now.

And his stock just went up as far as we’re concerned. T.I. and his wife Tiny made history by having themselves and their six children animated for Vh1′s holiday special called, “T.I. and Tiny: Holiday Hustle Special.”

The special follows the family from Atlanta to the North Pole as they try to find a missing Santa Claus. Apparently, an elf Cyrus tells T.I. that the only person “who could save the King of the North Pole was the King of the South.” So the family takes a candy-striped van to solve this dilemma.

I don’t know about you but I think that’s pretty darling. There can never be enough holiday movies. And there’s nothing wrong with incorporating elements of the hood into the holidays.

Anyway, if you have a few minutes, 39 to be more specific, or you just want to see some animated black folks, check out the video below to watch the entire special.

Starring everyone’s favorite singer, Whitney Houston, and favorite actor, Denzel Washington, The Preacher’s Wife was a feel good movie we wanted to see from them. And though many of us were rooting for Denzel and Whitney to at least kiss in the flick, it was still a cute, little holiday movie.
