I'm thinking about finding and watching 80s cartoon episodes and specials (and non-animated children's specials as well!) from the holidays.

I found a few already, but I'm specifically looking for ones from Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's. I'll take the old classics that were re-aired regularly through the 80's as well, like the Grinch, Frosty, Rudolph, and the Charlie Brown specials, just add the year for reference.

Some cartoons had individual episodes, like the Smurfs' "Littlest Witch" or the Pac-man ones. I'm at work, so I don't have the same list with me as I have at home. I'll post with it when I get a chance.

Halloween Specials:
Which Witch is Which?
Garfield's Halloween Adventure
Mr. Boogedy
The Worst Witch
Disney's Halloween Treat
Frankenweenie
The Great Bear Scare
It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966)
Bugs Bunny's Howl-o-ween Special (1978)

Halloween Cartoon Episodes:
Smurfs: "The Littlest Witch"
Pac-Man: "Pacula", "Trick or Chomp"
Pound Puppies: ???

Thanksgiving:


Christmas:


New Years:

This will get updated over time as you guys submit information! Smile

Well, since they've pretty much been re-aired every year since their original airings, I would definitely go ahead and list the Charlie Brown specials.

"It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown"
"A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving"
"A Charlie Brown Christmas"

Those are 3 classics! Very Happy

This may also be helpful to you in picking out '80s classics for your lists.

Those pages also have links to most all of the holidays you were asking about.

Oooh, awesome! Thanks for the links! I haven't made it very far in my list because it's been work, sleep, and be ill for the last couple of days. Ugh. I'll update it tonight, hopefully.

Since the lists didn't mention them, there are The Real Ghostbusters' Halloween specials:

When Halloween Was Forever (1986): When the ancient fiend Samhain is released from his stone prison by the ghosts and goblins of New York, the Ghostbusters must stop him from freezing time so Halloween will never end. This is one of my favorite episodes of any show, ever.

Halloween II 1/2 (1987): Samhain and his minions attack and capture the firehouse, kicking out the Ghostbusters and taking the Junior Ghostbusters hostage. Very impressive animation.

The Halloween Door (1989): Musical episode. A crotchety old man accidentally releases a host of eldritch horrors trying to prevent the children of his neighborhood from celebrating Halloween. Boogaloo's villain song is catchy.

"The Flintstones Meet Rockula and Frankenstone" (79/80)
"The He-man & She-Ra Christmas Special" (85)
"the Witches Night out" (7Cool
"the Adventures of Ichabod" (49)
I'm also a big fan of the Christmas Carol. The Flintstones (94), the Jetsons (85), the Muppets (92) and the Mickey mouse (83) versions can usually be caught on tv.

....and the Pinky and the Brian Christmas Special (95) was really good. And the Halloween Tree (93) has been doing pretty good.

There's an animated TV special from 1987 called The Adventures of Candy Claus. It's about a doll that comes to life and is raised by Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus as their daughter.


Here's the IMDb page on it:
http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0446665/

The cartoon even seems to be on Youtube:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O_EXcO-qk00


I remember that "Alvin and the Chipmunks" had a Christmas special, but it already seems to be mentioned in the Wikipedia page that's been posted.

Do you have "The GLO Friends Save Christmas"? I used to see this one aired most every Christmas as a child in the '80s...
http://www.amazon.com/GLO-Friends-Save-Christmas-VHS/dp/6300157539

According to the Christmas specials wiki, it first aired in December 1985

In fact, you probably may like to look through that whole wiki for Christmas specials in any case- http://christmas-specials.wikia.com/wiki/

I would think Halloween, Thanksgiving, New Year's Day, and other specific religious holidays- Hannukah, Kwanzaa, etc.- would be a much smaller list...

In fact, about the only New Year's Day specials I can think are:
Happy New Year, Charlie Brown!
and
Rudolph's Shiny New Year

You can count on just about every single animated series since the dawn of time that has been syndicated for an entire season will definitely have a Christmas episode. Good chance there might be Halloween and Thanksgiving episodes as well.




Paul Fusco (Creator of Alf) Holiday Specials:

-Crown of Bogg (1981) - Halloween Special
-Santas Magic Toy Bag (1983)
-Thanksgiving Tale (1983)
-The Valentines Day that nearly wasnt (1983) (Presumably lost aside from a few clips a certain Youtube user put up. Dont try hes a little bitch and wont trade/sell full copies. Fusco himself doesnt even have the master to this one!)

If anyone is interested I have the highest quality set of these Fusco Specials. None have ever been released on home video and stuff like 'Crown of Bogg' was only aired twice on Showtime channel back in 81-82! I have copies of these specials direct from Paul Fusco! They will never be officially released which is sad.



Some other random specials from the 80s:

Fat Albert's Halloween Special
Bugs Bunny Valentines Day Special
Popeyes Valentine Special: Sweethearts at Sea
A Very Merry Cricket
The Nutcracker Fantasy
A Cosmic Christmas
Intergalactic Thanksgiving
Easter Fever
Rome-0 and Julie-8 (was originally aired as a Valentines day special)
Mad, Mad, Mad Monsters!
Halloween Tree
The Midnight Hour
Marc Summers Magical Mystery Tour (AKA Marc Summers Magic Halloween Special)
Witches Night Out


Heres a good reference for Halloween stuff: http://halloweenspecials.blogspot.com

Haha- classic. I've seen The Star Wars Holiday Special at least once in its entirety- it's fun. Very Happy Cool
And it's the first appearance of Boba Fett.

Sadly, the Boba Fett cartoon was the best part. The rest was an acid trip. I especially liked Itchy getting horny over Wookie porn. Oddly, Chewbacca's wife and son, Mala and Lumpy, were played by males. And, is it me, or doesn't Carie Fisher as Princess Leia, singing that song at the end, look like she's high or drunk?
