The Spirit of Christmas Specials!

A couple of pieces I’m very proud of — a look at some of the great Christmas stories on TV over the years.

The Flamboyant Snow Miser from Rankin-Bass' "The Year Without a Santa Claus" - screen capture from ABC Family airing

Here’s a look at the many Rankin-Bass Specials, and how they do (or don’t) tie together.

And here’s a look at everything from Charlie Brown and the Grinch to more obscure ones like He-Man and She-Ra, The Snowman, Jim Henson’s Muppets, and many more!  Even David Bowie shows up!
