Lindsay's Holiday List of Lists

We watched an approximate total of 75 movies, specials and episodes this month. Sheesh.

Here are a few stats I put together:

Based on my List, we watched
16 Movies, 36 Specials, and 23 Episodes

9 of these were in some way a version of A Christmas Carol
6 had sizable references to Twas the Night Before Christmas
3 had spins on It's a Wonderful Life
3 had a version of The Gift of the Magi

25 had Santa as a major character (Real Santa, more than one line, significant part of the piece)
6 had Jesus as any size character, (basically on screen at all) plus 2 more used him as a good sized plot point.



My 10 favorite things we watched, in no particular order:
The Snowman
Mickey's Christmas Carol
A Muppet Family Christmas
The Nightmare Before Christmas
Blackadder's Christmas Carol
Animaniacs: A Christmas Plotz/Little Drummer Warners
Prep and Landing
Emmet Otter's Jug-Band Christmas
BtAS: Holiday Knights
The Powerpuff Girls: Twas the Fight Before Christmas


My 5 least favorite: In order to end up on this list, the item had to be more than boring. I had to be actively angry that I was sitting through it.
We Wish you a Turtle Christmas
Santa Claus (1959)
Casper's Haunted Christmas
Alf's Special Christmas
Santa and the Three Bears


And a few Honorable Mentions for things that didn't quite make the favorites list:

Most Warm Fuzzies:
Christmas Eve on Sesame Street
A Muppet Christmas Carol
Justice League: Comfort and Joy

Best New Surprises: Things I liked quite a bit that we hadn't watched before (or not in years)
George of the Jungle: Jungle Bells
Will Vinton's Claymation Christmas Celebration
Babar and Father Christmas
