Of course, virtually all of us love the classics, like Rudolph, the Grinch, and the Peanuts specials. Feel free to bring those up if you like, but what I’m really talking about are the “lost” specials–the ones you never see on TV anymore.
For example, one of my all time faves is “The Year Without a Santa Claus”, featuring the unforgettable characters, Snow-Miser and Heat-Miser (“I’m Mr. Green Christmas, I’m Mr. Sun!..”). Santa decides to skip out on Christmas, and a couple of elves go out looking for him.
Don’t limit it to Christmas either, I can think of a lot of old holiday specials that don’t get shown anymore (Whatever happened to, “It’s the Easter Beagle, Charlie Brown!”? I haven’t seen that on network TV in years.)
Which ones do ya’ll remember?
