Worst Animated Christmas Movies and Specials


The Top Ten

1 Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa

I figured that this would be at number 1. Then again, I also expected 1991's "Christmas Tree" to be at number 1...

If only they would have had a higher budget. - GehennaTheSecond

I only came here to add this. Guess it was already here - KalloFox34

GOOD GOD! This special is so bad, it makes the 1991 Christmas Tree look good! - The2000sGeek

Probably the reason why the WB closed down in 2006, even though this thing came out in 2002. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

2 The True Meaning of Christmas

This deserves to be #1. - Synchronocity

3 Nuttiest Nutcracker

This thing aired on CBS! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

4 Elf Bowling: The Movie

Who cares about Elf Bowling?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

5 The Christmas Tree (1991)

Anyone remember watching this on the USA Network back in the early 1990s?! No, I'm not kidding. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

6 Rugrats: Babies in Toyland

This one is on the list for one reason: It's Rugrats! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

7 Doug's Christmas Story

Who cares about Doug?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

8 Caillou’s Holiday Movie
9 A Very Special Family Guy Freakin' Christmas

This special aged horribly! Why? This is Family Guy! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Family Guy is awesome. My opinion. - KalloFox34

10 My Little Pony: A Very Minty Christmas

The Newcomers

? Frosty the Snowman Frosty the Snowman Frosty the Snowman is a 1969 animated Christmas television special based on the song "Frosty the Snowman".

The Contenders

11 Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol

Mr. Magoo is NOT FUNNY! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

12 Barbie in a Christmas Carol
13 Eight Crazy Nights

Who cares about Eight Crazy Nights?!

Adam Sandler is NOT FUNNY!

Such a disgusting movie. - KalloFox34

14 Barbie: A Perfect Christmas
15 The Star

Basically a more Christian Nuttiest Nutcracker (this is made by Sony, who also made that movie). - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

16 Rugrats: The Santa Experience

This is one of the worst. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Wanna know why every Klasky Csupo Christmas special from Nickelodeon is on this list? Because with the exception of Aaahh! Real Monsters and Duckman, Klasky Csupo shows aged horribly. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

Why is this here? This was good. And don't reply to my comment saying it isn't because I'm allowed to have my own opinion. - kcianciulli

17 Grandma Got Run Over by a Reindeer

It sucks.

18 Barbie in the Nutcracker
19 Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer: The Movie
20 The Fairly Oddparents!: Christmas Every Day

I kinda liked this episode ngl - CrypticMemory

Timmy wishes for Christmas every day. Need I say more? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

21 The Christmas Brigade

The sequel to The Christmas Light
which somehow manages to be worse than Rapsittie Street Kids: Believe in Santa - PerfectImpulseX

22 Olive, the Other Reindeer

This was made by DNA Productions, who made Jimmy Neutron, which is why it sucked. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

23 Santa vs. the Snowman 3D

What the heck is this? Is it about a fight between Santa and the snowman?

This was in IMAX theatres back in 2002. I'm not saying IMAX sucks. I love IMAX, but THIS movie was again, made by the same guys who made Jimmy Neutron! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

24 The Christmas Light (1995)

Not as bad as Rapsittie Street Kids, but it's still bad. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

25 Dexter's Laboratory: Dexter vs. Santa's Claws

As much as I love Dexter's Laboratory, this episode was atrocious. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

26 Rugrats: Let It Snow

ANOTHER Rugrats Christmas episode? - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

27 All Grown Up!: The Finster Who Stole Christmas

ANOTHER Klasky Csupo Christmas special for Nickelodeon?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

28 The Wild Thornberrys: Have Yourself a Thornberry Little Christmas

Even the Wild Thornberrys had a Christmas episode?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

29 Rocket Power: A Rocket X-Mas

Even ROCKET POWER?! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

30 As Told by Ginger: An "Even Steven" Holiday Special

AS TOLD BY GINGER TOO?! This is why "Aaahh! Real Monsters: Gone Shoppin'" is the only good Christmas episode of ANY Nicktoon Klasky Csupo has EVER done! - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

31 The Adventures of Jimmy Neutron: Boy Genius: Holly Jolly Jimmy

This one is too lame. - SpaceGoofsGeekerBoy

35 Christopher the Christmas Tree
36 Santa and the Three Bears
