Familiar Faces # 46: the 12 Forgotten Animated Christmas Classics


  1. A nice collection of rare holiday specials.

    What's funny is that I wanted to do a review of the Nutcraker Prince cause that is my all time favorite special. I own it on VHS. You even did the 24 jokes I had thought of doing.

    While you're number 1 is worth giving a shot, I can't really say that I enjoy just this small preview. The whole Santa's Sack being the baby Jesus's cloths is really out there and quite coincided of them to write...but does make for an effort. Maybe I don't like it cause it doesn't have nostalgia in it, and I have a thing against flash animation that moves so frigidly. But the background designs are really good (as you pointed out)

    Great list though, they're all really good for being so underated. Thanks for the holiday cheer.

  2. Sorry for me, but hulu do not want to transmit a single thing outside the United States.
    Lucky for me, i have watch almost everything in this list.

    Good list, and same as you, I know there out still to many underrated Christmas specials; hope of seen more of those next year.

  3. The only two I recognize from your list are The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus, the animated version, and The Town That Santa Forgot. All the rest I've never heard of, except for Yes Virginia, There Is A Santa Claus, which I encountered on TV Tropes. Still, very nice list, I'll be sure to watch those specials next X-Mas... along with my incredibly Guilty Pleasure special: Christmas Comes To Pacland. Yes CR, There is a Pac-Man Christmas special.

  4. As soon as I saw the title, I thought, "I wonder if the 12 Days of Christmas is on here..."

    When it came up at #12, I almost high-fived my monitor. Made my night, man.
