Synopsis

Rudolph & Frosty's Christmas in July
Rudolph & Frosty's Christmas in July is an animated feature where Santa Claus must rescue Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman from a cruel wizard who has stranded the beloved characters on a sunny seashore. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

The Year without a Santa Claus
In Jules Bass' puppet-animated A Year Without A Santa Claus, an elf and a young boy have to rescue Santa from the evil Heat Meiser and Snow Meiser. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi

Pinocchio's Christmas
Pinnochio struggles to earn enough money to buy his father Gepetto a Christmas present in this animated holiday puppet show. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

'Twas the Night Before Christmas
When a local Junctionville newspaper prints an insulting letter about Santa Claus, Joshua Trundle and Father Mouse set out on a mission to let Old St. Nick know that he's truly appreciated, and convince him not to skip over their town this coming Christmas Eve. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi

Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas
He's mean, he's green, and he's doesn't like the Yuletide season one bit -- Jim Carrey stars in this live-action adaptation of the classic children's story by Dr. Seuss (aka Theodore Geisel). High atop Mt. Crumpet, the Grinch (Carrey) observes the residents of Whoville joyously preparing to celebrate Christmas. The Grinch was born in Whoville years ago, but was shunned due to his scary appearance, and his unrequited love for Martha May Whovier has turned him bitter; the good cheer of the Whos has been a thorn in his side ever since. Finally the Grinch decides he's had enough of all this happiness, and with the wary aid of his dog Max, the Grinch conspires to steal Christmas from Whoville, making off with their presents, holiday decorations, Christmas trees, and everything else used to enjoy the holiday. Molly Shannon, Christine Baranski, Jeffrey Tambor, and Clint Howard play several of the citizens of Whoville, while Anthony Hopkins narrates (taking over from the late Boris Karloff, who memorably read Dr. Seuss' story in Chuck Jones' 1966 animated adaptation of the story). Ron Howard directs. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Leprechaun's Christmas Gold
An enchanted being from the Emerald Isle must rescue his village from an evil monster in this animated adventure from Arthur Rankin and Jules Bass. Dinty Doyle the Leprechaun wants to find the ideal Christmas tree for his family's home, but just when he's found a seemingly perfect pine near the Irish coast, he discovers a terrible banshee has been trapped inside the tree. Dinty accidentally releases the creature, which soon sweeps through the Leprechaun's village, stealing the golden treasures they'd been saving for Christmas presents. Can Lord Patrick, king of the little people, conquer the banshee and save Christmas? The Leprechaun's Christmas Gold features the voice talents of Art Carney and Peggy Cass. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

The Stingiest Man in Town
Walter Matthau gives voice to Scrooge in this animated version of A Christmas Carol. Other noted voices include Tom Bosley, Theodore Bikel, Robert Morse and Dennis Day. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey
In this animated holiday outing, a good-hearted little donkey is the butt of many jokes because of his exceptionally long ears. Despite the constant ribbing, Nestor grows up to perform a very important task on the very first Christmas Eve. ~ Sandra Brennan, Rovi

Frosty's Winter Wonderland
The sequel to the original animated Frosty the Snowman, Frosty's Winter Wonderland originally appeared on television in 1976. Narrated by Andy Griffith, it tells the story of Frosty's friends, the children, who decide to make him a snow-wife named Crystal. Jack Frost is not happy about the childrens' idea and tries to spoil everyone's fun, especially Frosty's. ~ Sarah Sloboda, Rovi
