The teens at Salt Lake City's Spy Hop Productions have produced an animated Christmas card — three minutes of holiday merriment for all to enjoy.

The stop-motion short shows a pair of Christmas robots delivering presents, and quelling a gang of unruly punk snowpeople with some holiday cheer.

Spy Hop touts the short as: "12 hours of stop motion, 11 hundred digital snowflakes, 10 bags of candy, 9 candy houses, 8 Musicology teens singing, 7 cans of spray paint, 6 bags of popsicle sticks, 5 moshing snowmen, 4 dozen snow cone cups, 3 weird & wonderful mentors, 2 Spy Hop robots, 1 incredibly awesome animation."
