Country music superstar Dolly Parton and the king of Christmas, Michael Bublé, have officially kicked off the festive season!

Releasing the new music video for their Christmas duet, 'Cuddle Up, Cozy Down Christmas,' the duo have been transformed into whimsical animated characters - and we are loving it.

In the cartoon clip, the pair can be seen holed up by a fire at "Holly Dolly’s Ski Resort" as a blizzard rages outside.

Michael's cartoon self plays the piano as an animated Dolly, decked out in seasonal red, sings along.

Elsewhere in the video, the pair take on the role of Santa's helpers, seeking out anyone who's not in the holiday spirit and helping them to, y'know, "Cuddle Up" and "Cozy Down."

The song comes from Dolly's A Holly Dolly Christmas album, which is the first holiday album she has released since her 1990 album Home for Christmas.

Dolly's Christmas album had originally been planned for release in 2017, however, this was pushed back for the release of I Believe In You as an Imagination Library fundraiser.

It was again delayed in 2018 for the release of the Dolly's Dumplin' film and soundtrack.
