My husband and I have some favourite Christmas specials on dvd. Here are some friends from one we watch every year: Yukon Cornelius and the Abominable Snowman (alias “the Bumble”). If you don’t recognize them, they’re from the 1964 animated feature, Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer. You can see the trailer on YouTube.
One of my favourite specials is Claymation Christmas. Check out how they do We Three Kings. Love those camels!
We’ll also watch a few versions of Dickens’ Christmas Carol. My two favourites are the Patrick Stewart version and the Muppets‘ version.
What’s your favourite Christmas special? Or version of it, if there are more than one?
Mom bought the movie version of Dickens’ Christmas Carol when we had no TV… she just liked it that much. We’ve watched it at Grandma’s a few times. I also love the Muppet’s version – I think they really capture Dickens. I’ve been waiting for Christmas to borrow It’s a Wonderful Life from the library. And The Note (based on an Angela Hunt novel) is a new favourite.
