Mr. Magoo's Christmas Carol

Mr. Magoo is one of my favorite cartoons characters, and this special is now another Christmas favorite; I had watched it two times. In the first TV special for Christmas, Mr. Magoo plays the role of Ebenezer Scrooge in a musical stage production of "A Christmas Carol," one of my favorite Christmas stories. I thought the songs were great, and so is the animation.

I'm afraid there is nothing else to say about this special other than I really love it! I love it better than "A Flintstone Christmas Carol," when it comes to a Christmas special about a stage version of Dickens' holiday story.

Here is a favorite Christmas special from Disney, with great animation and a heart-warming story. I think this special is the only directorial job for Don Bluth before he left the Disney studio to create films like An American Tail, Thumbelina, etc. The story (as some of you might know it) is about a boy who has to sell his favorite donkey (and friend) named "Small One". But the problem is finding the prefect, kind owner for him. That's all I could tell you folks, you will have to see the film for yourself how it ends.

So anyway, I really love this special with it's really beautiful story and wonderful animation.

Here is another Christmas special from Rankin/Bass that I love. It is about a little donkey with long,long ears named Nestor, who would become the donkey who would aid Joseph and Mary to Bethlehem. Now for those of you with sensitive hearts, you might cry at some scenes - just a reminder.

I thought Rankin/Bass did a good job in creating another Christmas classic, with the soundtrack, the story line, the moral (which I do not mind at all); Roger Miller (voice from Disney's Robin Hood) was superb. There is even some actual history in this in regards to the Roman Empire. So overall, I love this TV special.

This is another Halloween TV Special I love and it's my favorite Garfield holiday special. Garfield's Halloween is also the first Garfield holiday special too.

Well the story starts with Garfield and Odie, dressed as pirates on Halloween night, and went off tricking-or-treating. Then by a river dock, Garfield spied a row-boat and houses across the river, and thought they could row across the river to the houses to get more candy. But the row-boat took Garfield and Odie down the river, and landed them on an island with an old house on it. Inside the house, they meet a spooky old man who tells them that the house is haunted by pirate ghosts who buried a treasure under the house 100 years ago, vowing to come back for it that very night.

So anyway I love this Halloween special and I loved how Lou Rawls sang the "trick or treat" song, he's got an awesome singing voice; the other songs are catchy too.

Halloween is my favorite holiday and I love to have a good scare from watching a really good horror movie, or just watch a classic animated special like this one. I remember this special WAY back when I was a kid in elementary school, when it was on TV of course. But they don't show it on TV anymore now, along with The Halloween Tree, which is another favorite of mine and a few other favorites too. But I was lucky to order myself a copy from Amazon.ca.

It's also a great film about facing your fears, like Ukaraiah did to save Whoville by jumping in The Grinch's wagon of spooks, to stall for time. Now that scene REALLY scared the hell out of me as a kid. I would like point the interesting critters of Punker's Pond. The Gree Grumps like pink cats living in tree stumps (I am a cat lover), but I wonder what does the bottom half of an Hakken-Krakke look like? a seal's body? or the body of an Plesiosaurus? well I don't know, but it never hurts to use your imagination.
