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

Rudolph's Shiny New Year
Rudolph is again a hero when he comes to the rescue of Baby New Year (otherwise time would stand still!). This animation/puppet combo features the talented voices of Red Skelton and Frank Gorshin. ~ Phillip 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

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

A Miser Brothers' Christmas
The holiday hijinks of The Year Without a Santa Claus's Heat Miser and Snow Miser continue in this follow-up to the Rankin and Bass classic. In this film, the fraternal foes must put aside their heated rivalry to make sure Christmas comes for the whole world. ~ Kimber Myers, 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

How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Chuck Jones' animated version of the classic Dr. Seuss book How the Grinch Stole Christmas originally aired on television in 1966 and has since become a holiday family favorite. Voiced by Boris Karloff (who also narrates), the Grinch lives on top of a hill overlooking Whoville with his dog, Max. Each year at Christmas time, the Grinch's hatred grows stronger toward those insufferably cheerful Whos down in Whoville. Content to exchange presents, eat large banquets, and sing songs in the town square, the Whos live in a blissful ignorance of the Grinch's contempt. One year, he gets the idea to stop Christmas from coming by dressing up as Santa Claus. He cobbles together an outfit and makes his dog drag him around on a sleigh while sneaking into the Whos' homes and stealing their presents, food, and decorations. After he has stolen every last thing, the Whos wake up on Christmas morning to sing in the town square, causing the Grinch to question the basis of his nefarious plan. Thurl Ravenscroft (the voice of kid cereal mascot Tony the Tiger) provides the vocals for the song "You're a Mean One, Mr. Grinch." This story was remade into a live-action movie in 2000 by director Ron Howard starring Jim Carrey as the Grinch. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi

Jack Frost
The 1979 Rankin/Bass production Jack Frost is a made-for-TV stop motion animation feature. Buddy Hacket narrates the story as the voice of groundhog Pardon-Me-Pete. The spirit of winter, Jack Frost (voice of Robert Morse) falls for a young woman named Elisa (voice of Debra Clinger). He asks Father Winter to make him into a human so he can win her love. However, she is already engaged to the brave knight, Sir Danny. When the villianous King Kubla Kraus (voice of Paul Frees) kidnaps her, Jack has to turn back into his spirit form in order to use his powers to save her. ~ Andrea LeVasseur, Rovi
