Cartoon Christmas Classics: Which is Your Favorite?

snowcartoon I love all the classic Christmas cartoons. They remind me of being 7 years old and staying up past bedtime to watch a cartoon at night that was only broadcast once a year.  It would be a whole another year before I got to watch Frosty the Snowman again. This is a big deal when you are 7 years old in the Eighties.

Now we can pick up a whole collection of our favorite classics in a DVD package at Costco for $23. I checked this weekend, but I didn’t pay for them this year. My favorites are being searched out on the network and cable channels, recorded, and saved on my DVR until January. I am so thankful that my 2 year old daughter will sit and watch them with me. I now have an excuse to watch “How the Grinch Stole Christmas” at least 10 times this month.

Here is a list of some cartoon Christmas classics.

Which are your favorites? Do you have a special memory with one them? Will you always remember Hermey the Dentist Elf? Do you tear up when Linus gives his speech about the true meaning of Christmas? Does A Christmas Carol weird you out a little? Do you remember the Heuy, Dewey, and Louie and how they wished for it to be Christmas every year? Okay, after all these questions. I seriously watch too much TV or  maybe I just have a good memory! haha.

    I do cry every time I watch “Charlie Brown Christmas.” Still. The story is so simple and beautiful, and it was made back in the day when studios were not afraid to address the real meaning of Christmas, for fear of “offending” people.

    “Nightmare Before Christmas” is pure animation genius. Even though the story line is “meh” and too scary for my kids, I watch it b/c it was so well done. And it’s classic Burton.

    For all the holiday traditions I am faithful to, can you believe I’ve never seen any of these? (At least, I have no recollection of them.) Even now. My daughter has watched the Grinch twice already and I have no interest. I guess I’m a Scrooge when it comes to cartoons! :)
