Wow, what a great line-up. Most of the movies I couldn’t care less about, but ABC Family does an AMAZING job during the Christmas season. A Flinstone Christmas, The Santa Clause movies, A VERY BRADY CHRISTMAS, A Garfield Christmas, Home Alone 2…What a line-up! The original Home Alone and The Santa Clause are missing but I think TBS usually shows those.

They even have MOST of the Rankin Bass Christmas specials, which is awesome. Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer and Frost the Snowman are absent, but one of the major networks usually has those tied up every year so they’re account for. Strangely, Cricket on the Hearth still hasn’t shown up yet on TV despite some of RB’s other equally not well-known specials like The Story of the First Christmas Snow, The Leprechauns’ Christmas Gold and The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus getting airtime. What makes it even more puzzling is Cricket on the Hearth has been available on DVD for a few years (as part of a holiday box set and then on its own) while The Story of the First Christmas Snow and The Life & Adventures of Santa Claus have never been released on DVD. What gives?

  1. I love to see Disney Movies , especially the Disney-Pixar ones. I recently bought the Blu-Ray Pack containing the Disney Cars,Up,Toy Story & Monsters Inc. But somehow whenever i zap and see that movie i continue watching even though i watched these movies for a million times.
