When the weather outside is frightful —or your family is on your last nerve — there’s nothing like settling in to watch a classic holiday special.“A Charlie Brown Christmas”and“It’s aWonderful Life”hold top spots on the TV guide, but there are plenty of overlooked specials that are sure to delight. Here are a few seasonal suggestions that might become your new family favorites. ‘AMuppet Family Christmas’ In this musical masterpiece, Kermit and friends prepare to celebrate the holiday season. What makes this special truly unique are the appearances by characters from“Sesame Street,”“Fraggle Rock,”and“Muppet Babies.”There’s even a cameo from the Muppet creator, Jim Henson, himself. If you can find this holiday special, consider yourself lucky. Complicated copyright laws can make it hard to track the movie down. ‘The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus’ The stop-motion film“The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus”is one of Rankin/Bass Production’s lesser- known works. Based on a story by L. Frank Baum, the
author of“TheWonderful Wizard of Oz,”this fantasy epic introduces a new Santa Claus story, one with light elves, wood nymphs, and benevolent immortals. It’s an unusual tale, but the strange elements are what make the story worthwhile. ‘A Rugrats Chanukah’ Praised by critics and audiences alike,“A Rugrats Chanukah”covers the story of Chanukah through the eyes of Nickelodeon’s beloved animated babies. In addition to putting a“Rugrats”spin on the Chanukah story, this special episode also features themes of family and forgiveness.“A Rugrats Chanukah”is a delightful experience for audiences who celebrate Chanukah and those who would like to learn more about the holiday. ‘DoctorWho: A Christmas Carol’ Here’s one for your nerdy family members. In this episode of the British sci-fi classic, the titular Doctor, an alien who travels through time and space, must save his friends by teaching a bitter old man the true meaning of Christmas. Time travel shenanigans
ensue as the Doctor reminds us of the importance of kindness, the value of loss, and the magic of spending the holidays with those we love. This special puts a unique spin on the Christmas Carol formula and is even accessible to audiences who have never seen “Doctor Who”before.
May these specials bring you some much-needed cheer and a moment of relaxation this holiday season.
For the past 10 years, Fleschner, Stark, Tanoos & Newlin has provided the community free cab rides to get back home during the holidays and during various events in Terre Haute and surrounding areas. During the holiday season, people are 2–3 times more likely to die in alcohol- related crashes, and 40% of traffic fatalities involve an impaired driver. We want to change that. This is why we offer free cab rides home during the holiday season for anyone in the Terre Haute area, starting Thanksgiving Eve through NewYear’s Eve. It increases awareness and helps folks get home without worry. FSTN in the Community Free Cab Rides and More!
