Another blog subject I’ve fallen behind on. I’m bending the rules for it with Christmas falling on a Saturday this year. Today’s edition is the list of shows that are the “must watch” shows for my Christmas to feel complete. Most of them are silly, and truth be known I like most of the old animated Christmas specials. These (again) are the “must watch” ones however.
1 The Original Die Hard
OK, that’s a little grim I know, BUT I love starting the holiday off seeing the bad guy get theirs. 🙂
2 The Muppet Christmas Carol
OK, let’s be real. There’s several spectacular versions of “A Christmas Carol” out there. The one with Patrick Stewart as Scrooge is one such example. This version is a little lighter and more fun though while still getting the message through.
3 A Charlie Brown Christmas
4 Batman The Animated Series: Christmas with the Joker
Classic Mark Hamill voice acted Joker. I also love seeing Batman going from he’s never watched “It’s a Wonderful Life” because he couldn’t get past the title, to admitting at the end that he liked it, AND that maybe life ain’t so bad after all. 🙂 Note that’s actually Charles Manson that Joker exchanges salutes with before climbing up the Christmas tree.
5 A Christmas Story
Can it REALLY be Christmas without this? TBS sure doesn’t think so, LOL.
And finally, THE classic. No Christmas is complete without:
Honorable Mention: How The Grinch Stole Christmas
The original, not that live action nonsense
