Top Ten Christmas Television SpecialsWhether it's a movie, or made-for-television, they're the televised Christmas specials that you and your family watch every year on television, and these are the ten best ones out there (with the year that it was first broadcasted included).
The Top Ten Christmas Television Specials
Christmas isn't quite christmas without this iconic masterpiece!
Yeah, I'd say this should be close to the top on just about any list
Come on, it teaches what Christmas is really about! Jeez, people now-a-days... - tacobell
This film made me love Peanuts.
Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman are overrated. This one is the best.
I like all of the tv specials on this list - Ajkloth
BEST OF ALL THE SPECIALS!
Maybe Christmas doesn’t come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.
Beautiful. In my opinion, it’s better than the animated versions. Nothing can ruin this classic good movie.
My favorite Christmas Special, Charlie Brown is a close second though
My favorite Christmas movie/short of all time. It's creative and oozing with the warmth and cuddly feeling. I just love it! I'm happy and exited for Christmas to celebrate its 50th anniversary! - LpsDisneyTmntFreak
This is my favorite Christmas special of all time! Well, it might be 2nd because I'm watching It's a Wonderful Life tonight! (For the first time X3) - Derpyderpderpderp
A British institution. Whoever didn't vote for this clearly doesn't get what the British consider Christmas specials.
Del and Rodney becoming millionaires in Only Fools, Morcombe and Wise and their South Pacific pisstake with several newsreaders, Alice Tinker going into labour for real in Vicar of Dibley's Nativity sequence and of course Jeremy James and Richard's encounter of Stig Jesus on Top Gear.
This is the one where the boys travel to Bethlehem from Iraq. They encounter border control, political bans and Top Gear interest in Syria. - mcvito
When I think Christmas Special I think of Top Gear, Doctor Who or Downton Abbey.
Who wants to watch Top Gear? No one. Where's Wallace and Gromit?
Who wants to watch Top Gear? Depends on whoever's hosting. If it's Jeremy Clarkson yes. If it's Chris Evans, probably not so much. - jezza0
This movie is the best idea ever! When I was little I'd always want to know answers to mysterious things about Santa. And yeah, the Grinch is kind of old since there has already been an updated full length live action feature film so my vote goes to this movie.
If you sit on my lap today, a trip to my van is the price you'll pay
This is My Most Favorite Christmas Special ever. A Little Girl named Karen & Her Friends built Frosty. Karen is My Most Favorite Character Ever. - jayjay0607
What? This special is mediocre! The animation is dull, the evil magician is annoying, Frosty is a total airhead, Karen is a complete brat, and Santa sounds like he's dying! Who would even think this T.V. Christmas special is remotely good? Stick to the music, Frosty!
I'm sure my mother won't mind as long as I'm back before dinner.
Karen's Mom: WWHHHATT!?!
This is overrated. Snow and Heat miser may be good, but I really don't like Mrs. Claus in this special. Seriously, lets face it. You can't be Santa Mrs. Claus. That's just creepy.
This Christmas special is okay. I like Snow-Miser, and the animation is great, but other than that, this T.V. special didn't stand out to me.
Why is this not #1?!
The best. Muppets, Sesame Street characters and Fraggles!
This is definitely my personal favorite. It's a Christmas tradition!
If your looking for a must see movie, watch this one. It's an amazing classic that puts us all in the Christmas with classic songs that never get old. It also teaches many lessons. It will forever be known and loved
Creepy Santa Cover makes this something I wouldn't watch
Buy 3 perfectly good cars and in 1 week have them demolished while looking for the source of the Nile - Frouze
This is my favorite episode of top gear
Can't believe it wasn't on the list!
Garfield is The Greatest! He shows he Does Have Real Feelings Of Love!
I just love the battle scene
The battle scene made me feel like a badass, as goes with the whole (original) Powerpuff Girls franchise! Daviddizor is rude and should have really bad taste in animation to the point where she likes Video Brinquedo (aka Toyland Video/Video Brinquedo USA) mainly because of 4Kidz, greatly weak animation and very negative stereotypes.
Awesome. There might be bad animation with a confusing plot to explain out loud, but it's just great to see these two in the same movie. - Pikachulover1
I would put Rudolph & Frosty's Christmas in July on my list of "Top 10 Worst Movies with Good Animation".
The one where Jerey Clarkson got into a bit of hot water with Argentina regarding an imfamous licence plate.
Former Doctor Who Christopher Eccleston is the patriach of a tiny family living under the floorboards as he attempts to flee the clutches of Granny Driver (Victoria Wood) and Profesor Mildeye (Stephen Fry).
Way better than that Caillou garbage.
One of my favorites
I really like this special. It is one of my favorites, and is way better than Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy
I thought this was 1994, since it was Season Two. Oh well... - xandermartin98
This is bad. But I actually used to LIKE this plot-hole-filled sack of snow crap.
