    Favorite classic TV Christmas specials?

    What is your favorite? I'm especially partial to Charlie Brown, myself. But they're all good.

    A Very Stinky Christmas, Ren and Stimpy. For movies it would have to be A Christmas Story

    Charlie Brown. Although the Grinch is a VERY close second.

    Even as old as I am and as often as I've seen it, I'm always touched by Linus and his story of Christmas. Barely beats out carvng the roast beast.

    I do keep in my Christmas Library the South Park episode with Stan as "The Boy in the Red Poof Ball Hat" and the evil forest creatures. Classic.
