Because I’m in the giving spirit (because it’s Christmas AND because I’m riding the high of another survived apocalypse) I’m going to re-wrap an old post and give it to you again, dear reader. I’m doing this for a variety of reasons.
- I’m generous.
- I hardly had any followers last year when I posted this.
- I’m lazy.
- It’s relevant (hey, it’s a Christmas post).
I’ve touched the post up a bit and added some more to it. Enjoy! Even if the post is a little stale and aged.
There are programs I absolutely must watch every year during the Christmas season because they absolutely rock. What, you are most CERTAINLY (probably….well, maybe) wondering, are these fantabulous programs that are absolutely must-see TV this time of year?
Miracle on 34th St? Nope. Never seen it, probably never will.
A Christmas Story? Again, no. Not interested.
Frosty the Snowman? Nope, I didn’t even like it when I was a kid.
Rudolf the Red-Nosed Reindeer? Ugh, how horrible.
The Animaniacs Christmas Special? Ding, ding, ding. We have a winner!
Animaniacs was won of THE greatest shows ever created, and their Christmas Special does not disappoint. Their adaptation of the Night before Christmas is the absolute best. Here is just a sample of what you’re missing if you have never seen it.
After I watch that, then their counterparts, Pinky and the Brian’s Christmas Special goes in the old DVD player.
After we’ve (me and the kids, anyway) watched that, I go and find the two DVD’s I have with Disney Christmas cartoon shorts on them. Not the corny ones they make today, but the ones from the 30′s and 40′s that kick so much ass. Like this one:
They don’t make them like that anymore and it’s a damn shame.
As far as movies go, there are not many Christmas movies that I do enjoy, but one of those is The Santa Claus. Tim Allen is funny, I don’t care who y’are. Yeah, I just went all Larry the Cable guy on your ass.
Then there is the all-time classic, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation. This has to be the best Christmas movie evar!
This is one of the best scenes ever.
So, that list comprises my list of holiday viewing. What do you like to watch?
PS: I would add Die Hard to the list, but the kids can’t really watch that….
