Are there any classic holiday movies or TV shows that you look forward to watching year after year? What are your all-time favorites? Are there any you simply can't stand?
My favorite special, which I can never find and no one seems to know, is "The Stingiest Man In Town", It's a Christmas Carol done by Rankin Bass, those holiday experts, and tells the story to children through the eyes of a Humbug. It has some of the best songs like, "Yes There Is A Santa Clause" and "Listen To The Song Of The Christmas Spirit". I finally found it on DVD, but it is in a HOliday package of other Rankin Bass classics and it's $30! I like the other ones on it too(well except for Frosty The Snow Man, I can't stand that one), but I can't bring myself to spend $30 even if it is 10 shows and well worth it. Oh well.
As I mentioned above I don't like Frosty The Snow Man, I really don't like snowmen in general. I also can do without holiday classics that everyone loves, Miracle On 34th St., It's A Wonderful Life, and most Dickens versions....well except the Muppets version and Mickeys(I'm not that crazy).
"Listen to the song of the Christmas spirit,
can't you hear it, can't you hear it.
Listen to the song of the Christmas spirit,
ringing in the air."
