Christmas specials

I was searching on the TiVo today for my favorite Christmas specials from my childhood, so that I could set them to record.

I started off with "The Year Without A Santa Claus," because Heatmiser and Freezemiser are just way too cool, with their song and dance routine. ("I'm Mr. Heatmiser, I'm Mr. Sun. I'm Mr. Green Christmas. I'm Mr. Hundred-and-One." and "I'm Mr. Freezemiser, I'm Mr. Snow. I'm Mr. Icicle. I'm Mr. Twenty Below.")

Then I searched for "How the Grinch Stole Christmas," because Boris Karloff and Dr. Seuss are meant for each other.

And then I said, "Oh, I think I also remember liking one called something like 'The Christmas That Almost Wasn't'." (Though, upon researching it, the one I liked must have had a different title, because "The Christmas That Almost Wasn't" is a live-action cheesy movie that sounds completely unfamiliar to me.)

And then I stopped. And I reflected. And I commented to Shannon, "I seem to like all of the NEAR DISASTER! Christmas specials, where Christmas is in dire and immediate danger."

Huh.

I also like "It's A Wonderful Life" and "A Christmas Carol," in both of which Christmas is only endangered by our culture's obsession with money.
