That was a tough question! :wink: I love them all, too, but if pressed, I'd choose Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer, because I love Sam the Snowman and the tunes in this one, too. :smilecc:

That proves it! The poll is split 25% for each one -- so they're ALL our favorites! And we have to watch everyone at Christmas time! :jump:

Its a real close 1 - 2 between A Charlie Brown Christmas and How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Both are wonderful examples of the true meaning and Spirit of Christmas, but I chose Charlie Brown.

I like each of the first 3..but my top favorite is Rudolph (isn't it wonderful that Hermey and Rudolph get some privacy time away from the shop by running away together?).

Yeah I LOVE the Charlie Brown Christmas one - and they even have a 'sequel' - I found it last year but it went away and I have yet to find it this year.

Actually, there are 3 sequels to the Charlie Brown Christmas special:

1. It's Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown (1992, CBS; has only aired once and is available on VHS/DVD)

2. Charlie Brown's Christmas Tales (2002, ABC; has aired after A Charlie Brown Christmas)

3. I Want A Dog For Christmas, Charlie Brown (2003, ABC; airs as a stand-alone special, anyone confirm that?)

I chose Charlie Brown though I make sure to watch them all every year! Once December hits, we're non-stop TV Christmas movies and shows every day! (of course we watch Christmas shows ALL year long!)

Leprechaun's Christmas Gold is another 60's era Rankin/Bass special that always gets overlooked. I have a DVD-burn copy of a VHS from another online friend, but it is impossible to find commercially. Such a loss.

I loved Prep Landing last year but I've never heard of this film. I'm certain my children would enjoy it -- so I'll order it from Amazon.com. Thanks! :smilecc:
