We're counting down to Christmas already? Nice! Very Happy Cool
Oh yeah- I LOVE Christmas! I celebrate Christmas and Easter every day because I celebrate Christ the Saviour every day.

Yep.

The big fella's Yule present is already in, and the shopping channels here have already mentioned it.

That and we have Ernest saves Christmas to watch Wink . After Bravestarr of course.

Also, not too long until the Christmas film channel starts, 1st September.

"Ernest Saves Christmas" is a classic! I love that film! And of course, there are plenty of '80s cartoon Christmas classics that can be watched too. That may be a good topic for later on when December 25th. gets just a little bit closer. Laughing

It's Ernest's best film by far.

I only know of He-Man and Alan Shearer's Christmas special. We'd be very interested in a list of others to hunt down.

You can't forget "How The GLO Friends Saved Christmas". Very Happy Cool
I loved watching that one as a kid. But there are also "Christmas Comes to Pac-Land", " 'Tis The Season to be Smurfy", "The Smurfs' Christmas Special", "A Garfield Christmas", "The Christmas Raccoons" (those last two are particular favorites for me Smile ) and still others I'm forgetting, I'm sure.
The Jetsons also had a Christmas episode in its 1980s revival run called "A Jetson Christmas Carol".
And of course, while not cartoons, there are also some puppet specials I have to mention- namely The Muppets! One of my all-time favorite Muppet Christmas specials was made in the late '80s, that being the classic "Muppet Family Christmas" (1987).
I feel like there's actually a thread for this very topic elsewhere, by the way.
Ah- here you go.
Very Happy Cool

Cool beans.

Though, the UK link for wikipedia for Yule specials is mostly new stuff. Pity, as the 80's stuff brings back so many good memories.

I know that the poundshop last year here had Muppets Christmas Carol on bluray, but alas, I didn't get it. If, and it is a big if, they get it back, I'll get it, even though sadly Michael Caine is in it, and we can't stand him.

Really? I like Michael Caine alright- he did great as Scrooge in "The Muppet Christmas Carol", at least in my opinion.
