Friday Review - Classic Christmas Specials

When I was watching the television with mommy last night, I noticed this advertised . . . The 25 Days of Christmas on the ABC Family Channel! I was very excited to see that tomorrow (Saturday 12/8) starting at 7 AM they are having a marathon of Christmas classics! Here is what will be on.

Rudolph and Frosty
Life of Santa Claus
Nestor the Christmas Donkey
Pinnochio's Christmas
Jack Frost
Frosty's Wonderland
'Twas the Night Before Christmas
Rudolph's Shiny New Year
Year Without a Santa
Santa Clause is Coming to Town
The Polar Express
The Santa Clause 2

Now, kitties, doesn't that sound like the perfect thing to watch, all snuggled on a blanket in front of a nice fire? Maybe with some hot tea and a candy cane or two? With the lights off and the Christmas tree all alight?


I am now developing ways of keeping my mommy home all day tomorrow so that I can enact this plan. I overheard her telling grandmama that she needed to be busy tomorrow finishing up her shopping, wrapping presents, and getting the sucky monster out to clean.

I don't think so, mommy.

With my sisters' help, I plan on having mommy snuggled on that couch with me ALL DAY LONG tomorrow. If any of you have an idea on how we can get mommy to stay home with us tomorrow, let me know. Holly and Ivy and I all have our thinking caps on for this problem.

Anyway, this won't be my traditional Friday Review, since I have to say that anything Christmasy generally gets two paws up from me . . . especially the classic programming, like the Rankin/Bass productions of "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" and "Nestor the Christmas Donkey." I know my mommy has watched them every year since she was a little girl, and she has watched them with me since I was a kitten.


I recommend that everykitty watch as much classic holiday programming as possible this season. If you can't tune into ABC Family, then pop in a DVD or VHS (for those old-schoolers) or hunt through your tv guide for something festive to watch! Now is the season to snuggle up with your parents and siblings and get into the Holiday Spirit!

PS: I received my card last night from Eric and Flynn . . . it is GORGEOUS! And super exciting to get a holiday card all the way from the UK!

Hmm, yoo pretend one of yoo is sick...our mom won't leave da house if we'z sick. Da one dat came before, Punkin, she was really good at this. She could fake sneeze and make coffing sounds even if she wasn't sick! She'd be "sick" for an hour and den be fine and run around like crazy.

Captain Jack and Dante said...

We love Heat Miser - he's redheaded like Mommy and Dante and sings a fun song. We wanna watch all day too. Hmmm, think we could all play sick?!

Daisy said...

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer is my very favorite!

The Furry Kids said...

Momma likes Rudolph, but she hates how the other reindeer are mean to him - she always has to skip the first part because she gets leaky eyes. hee hee

Happy Friday!

Our Australian television has nothing like that on it.

So our mom hired five DVDs yesrterday to watch on the weekend while working on my blog.
One is about Christmas - it is the Mytrhbusters Christmas DVD, the other four are Monk - mom has never seeen those before and they are funny.

What a beautiful Xmas photo of ya! Are ya goin to use that for your Xmas cards?? I sure like your reviews and glad that you are on board to be a reviewer for our shows.
I do have an idea on how to keep mommie home tomorrow. When ya get up in the morning act like ya kind of don't feel good, maybe a little ill. Now this is where it gets tricky because if ya act too ill she will shove ya in a box, put ya in a moving car, and take ya to the animal doctor where he can do all kinds of rude things to ya. So play it safe and be careful.

Rudolph is a cutie. If you get any good hints to keep your mommy home, let me know! You are lucky to have her around at all. My SS is abandoning me for a whole week!
