    What was everyone's favourite Christmas special growing up?? I loved Arthur's Christmas special...although I was probably about 12 when I saw it for the first time lol. Garfield & Friends was awesome too.

              The Charlie Brown Christmas Special blows all of the others away. It's the only one that actually got better as I got older and was more able to appreciate the subtleties of its message. In a way, it's really the only Christmas special that is actually about Christmas, as opposed to presents, Christmas trees, Santa, etc.

              There are other Christmas specials that are fun, cute, charming, or have heavy nostalgia value, but this is the only one that I would truly call great television.

                Man, how could I forget Charlie Brown Christmas? "Christmas Time is Here" is a brilliant song.

                  Emmet Otter's Jugband Christmas is my all time fave. Followed right behind that is Ruldoph The Red Nosed Reindeer and then Frosty The Snowman.

                  Live action faves are Home Alone, National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation ("Save the neck for me, Clark";)lol, The Night they Saved Christmas with Jaclyn Smith and of course Ernest Saves Christmas.

                          Christmas Eve On Sesame Street, A Muppet Family Christmas, Emmit Otter's Jugband Christmas, The Christmas Toy, National Lampoons Christmas Vacation, Frosty The Snowman, Rudolph, A Christmas Story, It's A Wonderful Life, Mickey's Christmas Carol and Ebby. Not sure if anyone has ever seen Ebby but(maybe it's Ebbie?..)it's a lifetime original Christmas movie that premiered maybe the last 90s? Starring Susan Lucci as the Ebenezer role. God I can't spell.

                            Those strange stop animation Christmas specials....who can forget those, like Rudolph the red nosed reindeer, and Rudy the elf that wants to be a dentist, lol. Lots of great bits of script in those.

                            I also remember the Charlie Brown Christmas special, I watch that every year, even now (via Youtube).

                            A Christmas Story I got into after seeing Ollie Hopnoodles Haven Of Bliss (same characters, different age, different story, and same writers and director I believe).

                            And we had Muppet Christmas Carol on VHS, actually, I think my sister STILL has it.

                                I think everyone can agree Charlie Brown Christmas, mainly for me, because during the Sixties and Seventies, everything was Peanuts. I mean, who didn't love Snoopy and Charlie Brown. Of course, Peter Griffin isn't too fond of Lucy, esp. if you read his book.

                                How the Grinch Stole Christmas because not only did Chuck Jones do it, you had to think about this, here's a guy who decides on committing major crimes and breaking-and-entering for spoiling Christmas, then returns the stuff when he realizes Christmas is more than just material possessions or decorations. And yet, no one prosecutes the man.. er, Grinch.. for it.

                                Also heard he cost Joe the use of his legs, that can't be good...

                                The Rankin-Bass holiday specials were the BEST, because like good ol' Charlie Brown, they came on every Christmas, and the R-B ones came on ALL the channels. You had the stop-motion ones like Rudolph and the Santa Claus series, then you had their animated ones like Frosty the Snowman and Twas the Night Before Christmas.

                                I think parents weren't too fond of Rankin-Bass because those songs DID get stuck in your head until the holidays ended.

                                You had a plethora of others. I did like Christmas Comes to Pac-Land only because it genuinely fit the theme for the holidays, and not include Mezmaron in it. Though I was disappointed because Hanna-Barbera could have made him the heavy like the Grinch, keeping the Pac-People from discovering the holidays, but I fear they were concerned ol' Chuck and Dr. Seuss might not fancy video game characters replacing their beloved Grinch.

                                And, of course, every version imaginable of Dickens' A Christmas Carol, I particularly love Mr. Magoo's version because our school back in Fourth Grade did our own twisted version of it where we took one of the melancholy songs, 'All Alone in the World' and gave it a rock beat.

                                Mainly because what ours did was we were the Spirits of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-To-Come, but the visions weren't co-operating in the way we wanted them to be, yet, it still taught Scrooge to be a better person for it... if not going into serious therapy.

                                But overall, besides the specials, I still loved the Christmas episodes of classic sitcoms. Especially one from That Girl, where Ann recalls spending her Christmas with one of her students at school.

                                I guess that's why we recall these specials so much, because before VCR and DVDs, you literally had to go and watch them once a year, rather than just pop it in and watch it whenever you want nowadays. Sometimes I long for the days when you could watch Christmas specials and enjoy them in your own way.

                                Ah, memories. 8)

                                      I don't remember the Aurthur Christmas, but i must have seen it. I loved Aurthur and if i had cable I'd still watch it. My favs. would be that muppet Christmas one where its the muppets/sesame street/fraggle rock, Charlie Brown Christmas, Garfield Christmas and that old Rudolf one that's got the snowman who sings silver and gold.

                                          I loved A Claymation Christmas. I searched for it for years then I found it on Amazon. I let my cousin borrow it. Shortly after that they got a divorce and he put it in storage. He went to get his stuff and all his dvds were gone. So now I guess I will order it again. What a pisser!!!
