Top 10 Best Christmas Television Specials

Whether 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.
The Top Ten
1 Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer

Christmas specials would not be the same without Rudolph. I had a crush on Hermey because of how handsome he looks and his voice actually is. Otherwise, I enjoyed the special with all my heart.

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!

Beautiful. In my opinion, it's better than the animated versions. Nothing can ruin this classic good movie.

2 How the Grinch Stole Christmas

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman are overrated. This one is the best.

Maybe Christmas doesn't come from a store. Maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more.

I have to see how the grinch stole christmas, to make it really fell like it's coming.

3 A Charlie Brown Christmas

Definitely one of my favorites. I really liked Linus's speech, the beginning, and all these scenes that made me joyful.

Come on, it teaches what Christmas is really about! Jeez, people now-a-days...

Christmas isn't quite christmas without this iconic masterpiece!

4 Frosty the Snowman

It may not have the same magic as Rudolph, but I still enjoy it. My favorite is Karen because she looks like me when I was little, and she's so adorable yet a really caring character. I feel so bad for her when she cried as Frosty melted.

This is My Most Favorite Christmas Special ever. A Little Girl named Karen & Her Friends built Frosty. Karen is My Most Favorite Character Ever.

5 Santa Claus Is Comin' to Town

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.

6 Top Gear Middle East Special

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.

7 A Muppet Family Christmas
8 The Year Without a Santa Claus

This movie is good, but just mostly due to the snow miser and the heat miser.

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.

9 Mickey's Christmas Carol

I like this, but where is olaf christmas?

10 Simpsons Roasting on an Open Fire

The debut episode of the Simpsons that has a classic yet a rough sense of humor with all of that magic. Definitely one of my favorite Christmas episodes.

The Contenders
11 Twas the Night Before Christmas

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

12 Top Gear Bolivia Special
13 Top Gear Africa Special
14 Merry Madagascar
15 Top Gear Vietnam Special
16 Top Gear Burma Special
17 Mr. Hankey's Christmas Classics
18 Spongebob Squarepants:Christmas Who?

This is definitely my personal favorite. It's a Christmas tradition!

19 Bah Humduck, A Looney Tunes Christmas
20 Top Gear India Special
21 Shrek the Halls

Can't believe it wasn't on the list!

22 Top Gear Patagonia Special

The one where Jerey Clarkson got into a bit of hot water with Argentina regarding an imfamous licence plate.

23 Mr Hankey the Christmas Poo
24 It's a Spongebob Christmas!
25 A Garfield Christmas
