    I don't know about you, but it is NOT Christmas without watching one of the good old classic Rankin-Bass Christmas Special.

    Rudolph, the Misers, Santa, Henry, Yukon Cornelius, Nestor, everyone - it's just not Christmas without them IMO.

    Anyone else have a favorite special?

    Either Santa Claus is Coming to Town or the Year Without a Santa Claus. The Miser Brothers and Burgermeister Miesterburger are the best.

    Though the Grinch is still my favorite non Rankin-Bass special.

    I've always like "The Year Without A Santa Claus" and "Santa Claus Is Coming To Town".

    The two I find depressing is "The Little Drummer Boy" and "Nestor".

    Definitely Rudolph. RTRNR was a huge part of Christmas for me. I remember watching an old recording of it every year, multiple times.

    Santa is an asshole in Rudolph.

    I like The Miser Brothers the best.

    Rudolph. Never seen The Year Without A Santa Claus. Never liked Dr Suess so not a fan of the Grinch.
