I'm watching Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer for the first time in years, and wondering how the hell this became such a classic. Face it, Santa is a douchebag, the elves are total dicks, and the reindeer are freaking sexist. Sure, there's redemption in the end, but really...Santa is someone who should have never needed redemption.

It really is a major suckage as far as cartoons go.

Just sayin'...

When my kids were small I used to enjoy seeing all the old Christmas cartoons and movies with them, but now I couldn't care less about seeing them again, except for one. "Emmet Otter's Jugtown Christmas" was on HBO in the late 70's/early 80's and I absolutely loved that show. They don't show it anymore that I know of.

So I just saw emmet otter Christmas has been posted on ninjavideo.net. Just click on movies and scroll down. You'll see the banner.

Make sure you open the applet to watch anything there.

Agreed.
I also have issues with the "no respect for you until you save the world" message.

Shouldn't you be nice to someone just because they're a fellow creature on this earth... without them having to save it?

haha, haven't watched it in years, but I'm sure I'll get sucked in next year when my son actually starts caring about tv ... he did sit through half of Julie & Julia with me last night though :)

With no kids in the house, I do not feel a need for the cartoon specials, except Charlie Brown!

Charlie Brown Christmas and the Boris Karloff version of the Grinch are the only ones I ever liked. Even as a kid.
Frosty the Snowman was total "ick" for me. It was a gentle cartoon but the characters annoyed me. - sss's mom

Isn't it amazing when you watch something that you remember with fondness from childhood and see it with adult eyes? These days I try not to spoil my warm memories by trying to revisit them. Except for Mary Poppins. That one never disappoints.

Christmas fovorites? A Christmas story. "You crazy, kid? You'll shoot your eye out!". Scrooged. "Bitch hit me with a toaster." and of course A Muppet Christmas Carol. You can't not love the Muppets.
As for ye olde timey Christmas shows? They blow reindeer dick.
