This is definitely one of the more underrated specials I've seen.

It's winter based, but not really Christmas based.

There are two separate Animanics Christmas episodes and a Pinky and the Brain Christmas that are really good.

Pretty sure there are more Rankin & Bass you could throw up there but I'm drawing a blank atm.

Also, should BTAS: Christmas With the Joker and JLU: For the Man Who Has Everything count?

My family likes to watch this once a year around Christmas, along with the original Grinch cartoon, Rankin and Bass Rudolph, and The Peanuts Christmas special.

I won't admit to still liking them, except for the Muppets, but I do shy away from the Peanuts cartoon. It's a fine show, but I've just had enough of the Jesus Speech near the end. Not anti-theist, just tired of it.

No love for Arthur Christmas? It's one of my personal favourites. The story isn't anything too special, but the characters and scenery are great. I don't hear it mentioned too often - I guess because Rise of The Guardians came out at the same time.

you should add this:

>Tfw im the only one who watched this

by Rankin-Bass, it revolves around a clockmaker's new invention to bring santa to town, and a tiny mouse family and their genius inventor son saves christmas (after a certain someone fucks it all up). it's pretty heartwarming and my family always watches it

You gotta add "How Murray Saved Christmas." I made a thread about this movie when it aired last year, but it went right under /co/'s radar. An absolute must-see, the humor is very Seinfeld!

I'm no artist, but that text colour with that background colour makes me want to vomit.
>>
>>77933075

I agree with >>77933141. There is way too much contrast between the green and red. The format looks pretty good.
>>
Does a stream exist which just shows christmas movies? I think that would be nice
>>
>>77933141
>>77933162
Yeah, I agree. It looks really gaudy. Does white text look any better?

I also made it a bit wider.

>>77933349
Yeah, that's much better! I'd personally changed the background to something "flatter" too, but that's just nitpicking.

>50+ posts and no mention of Year Without a Santa Claus
I particularly look forward to that one every year.

Also, I've always been fond of A Lost Claus from Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends.
even if I only just now, while writing this post, realized the name was a pun

>>77933075
I don't think it's crappy, I literally did the exact same thing OP is doing and made a list from others suggestions.

id put the year after every title just for consistency

>>77931623
The Jim Carrey Christmas Carol was shockingly good.

The only bad part was the pointless Ghost of Christmas Future carriage chase.

The amazing opening more than made up for it though, as was actually showing Ignorance and Want (which all kids versions normally skip).
>>
Okay. I think I've got something that looks somewhat decent here. Gonna start working on getting all the other specials on there now.

>>77933475
Maybe crappy was too strong of a word. I just don't really dig the list against a black background. Other recommendation lists I've seen on 4chan have images on them like this one does.

>>77933732
I mainly did to differentiate certain versions of specials since there's going to be two Rudolphs on the list for example. But having the year after everything does sound like a good idea so I'll do that.

It's dark as fuck but King of the Hill's "Pretty, Pretty Dresses" is one of the best episodes of the show. Really more of a mental breakdown episode with Christmas as a backdrop, but worth watching and still funny.
>>
>>77933952
Idea;
at the very very bottom of the list, after you've put on everything good, add a "Naughty List" section, with the only thing on it being Grandma Got Run Over By A Reindeer

"How Long Is Forever" is one of the best holiday specials I've ever seen and is one of my very favorite cartoon episodes in general. Technically they celebrate Blorthog but it's basically Starfire's version of Christmas. It's got a good message about friendship/family in there too.

I think Hillenium from King of the Hill season four deserves a place if you can have more than one from a series.
>>
>>77937416
I'd say both adaptations of The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus should be on the list, as should be Christmas With The Joker from Batman: The Animated Series, and I believe there's a Christmas themed episode of The Real Ghostbusters that also should be on there(can't remember if Gargoyles had one or not at the moment)
>>
>>77937524
Added the Futurama X-Mas episode as well. Just remembered about that one.

>>77938090
There's two versions of Life & Adventures of Santa? Fuck. I'll go double check that. Christmas With the Joker is already on there.
>>
So I made a fuckup with Life and Adventures of Santa. I used an image from the 2000 version and captioned it as being the 1985 version. I now have both versions on there and each one has the correct year. Also added that Ghostbusters episode.

I'm going to go back to this tomorrow and fix up the order these specials are listed on here since a few of them were just slapped in there while I was in the middle of it.
>>
>>77938424
Also, if anyone has a better image to use for any particular special, feel free to share it. The majority of these pics came from Google images and I'm sure some of them could be better.

Well, I can't expect everyone to have been raised Southern Baptist drowning in Precious Moments memorabilia. It's an interesting take on the Christian telling of Christmas as it does not mention God or Jesus by name or what any of the religion means. Just a little angel delivering a crown to their new king.
