My Favorite Santa Sleigh Wreck Christmas Specials
I had the chance to talk with Uncle Henry on Newsradio 710AM and iHeartradio app to talk about my favorite Christmas Specials. WARNING: my favorite specials are usually from my childhood and are sublimely "so bad" that they are "so good." Enjoy this list of Holiday Santa Sleigh Wrecks of Mirth and Joy!
A Very Brady Christmas
Pretty sure this is when offscreen Florence Henderson gave Barry
Williams (Greg) a very special Holiday present - HO HO HO!!!! If you know
what I mean.
Voyage of the Damned - Dr. Who - 2008 -2010
A terrible Dr Who Posiden Adverture knockoff set in space with a terrible
villain, lousy script, lame plot and easily the worst companion.
Christmas Comes to Pac-Land - 1982
Bad Christmas Special and featuring the OS SO POPULAR PacMan
saving Christmas by eating Power Pellets - which look like pills and drugs
and all during Nancy Reagan’s kick off of Just Say No campaign
The Year Without a Santa Claus
2006 - remake of the Rankin-Bass classic
John Goodman as a world-weary St. Nick who contemplates throwing in
the towel on the whole Christmas thing.
TMNT: We Wish You a Turtle Christmas - 80-90s
Turtles buying their master Splinter a Christmas gift at the last minute
Nestor the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey - 1977
Sounds like what it is — a Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer ripoff & it is
Casper’s First Christmas - 80s
Yogi Bear and friends turn up to help Casper celebrate his very first
Christmas! Plus - Casper is a DEAD CHILD that can’t move on to an afterlife - why
does no one talk about this horrible horrible character
How sad and creepy!!!
THE REAL GHOSTBUSTERS: XMAS MARKS THE SPOT - 80s
The boys travel back in time to Victorian London and unwittingly 'bust the
ghosts of Dickens' classic story. Without these paranormal conscience
correctors, Scrooge never changes his ways, and when the Ghostbusters
make it back to their own time they find that Ebeneezer's war on Christmas
has eradicated the festive season altogether.
Every pop culture TV phenomenon has made a Dickens knockoff - this one
is my favorite next to SCROOGED the MOVIE - which includes Bill Murray
however Bill is not the voice of the Ghostbusters cartoon.
ALF’s Special Christmas - 1987
Network TV Christmas special is a joyless affair that comes complete with
a crying widowed husband, a suicidal cabbie and ALF telling a dying kid
there in no Santa!
