Only 90 more days my friends! This certainly is a fantastic and joyous time of year!! I was just thinking of all the excellent programming we get to experience year in and year out, just wondering what some of your favorite of the Cartoon Christmas specials are? I have several: (in no order)

1. A Garfield Christmas
2. Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!
3. Rudolph
4. Frosty
5. Santa Claus is Coming to Town

There are more, but let's see what all you can come up with?

Rudolph is my all-time favorite, by far. Then it's probably Charlie Brown and Frosty.

Great choices. I try to watch them all if I can. The Grinch is a great one too.

If I was going to name a few, they would be...

1. Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol
2. A Charlie Brown Christmas
3. How the Grinch Stole Christmas
4. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer
5. Prep & Landing

All of them (and many more) bring a smile to my face and lighten my day any time of the year... :hopxmas:

Every single year the only two I ALWAYS watch are

Garfield's Christmas (hence the quote in my signature)
and The Grinch (original Cartoon).

I actually don't LOVE Charlie Brown as much as everyone else.
But I also do enjoy the Rankin Bass version of Jack Frost

Well, my first growing up so it begins with...
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Mr Magoo's Christmas Carol
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
and for the modern age... Prep & Landing (both of them)

I'm hoping as each new TV Christmas Season arrives, someone at the networks will develope new and "respectable" Christmas Cartoon specials

My favorites are Rudolph and Frosty. I would be interested to know if anyone on here doesn't like either of those...

Nothing new yet, though I do enjoy the Halllmark season. Hoping for a nice animated entry this year.. :my lord:

I have all of them on DVD, but for some reason, watching them on DVD just isn't the same. Does anyone else feel this way?

Actually, I enjoy them on DVD (and VHS) better. I love being able to actually have the time to relax on my time frame to watch and enjoy... :rudolph:

I like the feeling of watching them on tv with everyone else- togetherness in spirit, you know? And the suspense, when you go to a commercial break just as the abominable snowman is coming over the mountains! lol Who knew I'd be a little nostalgic about commercial breaks.

Though, the option to watch them any time and as many times as I want is also very handy. Especially the years that I completely miss when certain ones are aired!

I usually gift wrap each of my specials and then (since they are in the same paper) open one each day till Christmas... :presents1:

I'm sure the various networks and cable streams will have their fair share. I have DVDs for all my favs, to include Charlie Brown, Rudolph, Mr Magoo Christmas Carol, Prep & Landing and quite a few more... :presents3:
