JingleDisk

Jingle Disk makes all my retro holiday dreams come true!

When I was a kid, I was fascinated by computer graphics and Christmas. Sadly, I couldn’t find programs for my Coleco ADAM or Atari 400 that fit the bill. However, I recently discovered that the Commodore 64, as well as the 128 & Apple IIc/e, have a program called “Jingle Disk”. The program contains a holiday card maker which you use with a printer, but more importantly, an animated graphical sequence depicting a Christmas scene. A festive neighborhood, decorated home, fireplace, tree, train, and a cat & mouse make this the perfect computer holiday graphics program. OH! And music!
