It's that time of the year again! Time to break out the egg nog, The gingerbread cookies,and wear your ugly Christmas sweater! Plus watch some good old fashioned Christmas Specials. Christmas specials have been around since the 1920's in radio and the 1950's on Televison. The 1960s and 70s brought the claymation Christmas Specials such as Rudolph that we all know,love, and Grew up with. Even Star Wars had a Christmas Special, but that was not very well recieved. Even to the modern day when shows like: The Simpsons, SpongeBob Squarepants, Family Guy, and Bob's Burgers all have Holiday Special episodes. Here are some of my all time favorites, including a new one that I feel like should be watched.
The quintessential Christmas viewing Classic. This TV Special revolutionized the Holiday TV Special as we know it.
A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
This special is famous for several reasons. The tree is one of them as well as the dancing scene that has become synonomus with the Peanuts cartoons. Plus who can forget the famous Vince Giraldi tune "'Linus and Lucy".
The Year Without a Santa Claus (1974)
This special features a very catchy tune about two brothers, The Snow Miser and the Heat Miser.
It's A SpongeBob Christmas (2012)
This is honestly one of the only post 2005 SpongeBob episodes I truly like. I like that they dd it in a claymation style which sets off a different vibe tha most Spongebob episodes.
The Simpsons first episode (1989)
Rugrats: The Santa Experience (1992)
Santa Claus is Coming to Town (1970)
Frosty The Snowman (1969)
The First SpongeBob Christmas episode (1999)
How The Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
The Loud House: 11 Louds A Leapin' (2016)
The story centers around a family of 11 children. One tries to prove Santa is unreal while ne tries to be nice by kissing up to everyone despite being naughty the rest of the 364 days. But, the main conflict of the story is centered around a cranky old man who lives alone. Anytime any of the kids' toys lands in his yard he claims ownership. But it turns out he is alone with his family living far away whom he had not seen in over 5 years. Upon discovering this, the family goes to his house with decorations, food, and a bus ticket to see his family. This warms the old mans heart as he turns from an old Grinch to a merry,happy old man.
That is my list of the top five Christmas specials on my list. Keep in mind these are not movies but TV episodes and specials the whole family or you yourself can enjoy this Holiday Season.
