When I was a kid my parents had a VHS of old Christmas Disney cartoons from the 30's, 40's and 50's that we watched soooo much. They are still my favorites. It had "On Ice", "Santa's Workshop" (which will be playing on TCM on Sunday as part of the first Treasures from the Disney Vault, SO EXCITED), "The Night Before Christmas", "Pluto's Christmas Tree" featuring Chip n Dale, "Donald's Snow Fight" and "On Ice" which has all the old characters out on the ice.

It really is such a good collection of early-ish Disney cartoons. I'm not sure if the VHS is still available or if they ever adapted it to DVD but you can probably find the shorts online. I know you just posted a clip from Donalds Snow Fight on the Snowball fight thread. Other faves are both the Muppets and Mickey's version of A Christmas Carol. Gotta love that classic story.

The 3 Santa clause movies and the muppet Christmas carol are firmly on my seasonal movie rotation, but also Mary poppins a tradition (however I now watch it all year round).
If I have time I also watch, mickeys twice upon a Christmas and a very merry muppet Christmas movie.

I also watch non Disney favourites like miracle on 34th street and elf.

Being a 90s kid, the Recess episode Yes Mikey, Santa Does Shave, comes to mind for me. And count me as another fan of Pluto's Christmas Tree.


"All my life I wonder how it feels to pass a day, not above them but part of them.

And out there living in the sun, give me one day out there, all I ask is one to hold forever. Out there where they all live unaware, what I'd give, what I'd dare, just to live one day out there."

Love Actually
A Charlie Brown Christmas
How the Grinch Stole Christmas
Polar Express
Twas the Night Before Christmas

I also love two Disney Christmas shorts: Pluto's Christmas Tree and The Clock Watcher.
