What are the worst Christmas movies/specials you’ve seen?
Not counting “intentionally bad” made for TV stuff like Hallmark and others (those are a guilty pleasure)

re: What are the worst Christmas movies/specials you’ve seen?
There was a stop frame animation Christmas show like Rudolph about a donkey with really long ears. He’s teased and has a pretty tragic childhood but ends up carrying Mary in to Bethlehem and gets to witness the birth of Christ.

There’s a scene where his mother dies and it crushed my 8 year old heart. It was up there with Bambi’s mother getting shot and Dumbo’s mother in chains.

I don’t consider myself a softy but frick those shows. I have a weakness for seeing animals hurt I guess. Even if it’s fictional cartoon or doll ones.

Anyway, the donkey’s name was Nester, I think the show was called Nester the Christmas Donkey or something.

Screw that show.

ETA:

Here it is.

I absolutely hated “The Little Drummer Boy” that was stop-motion, like “Rudolph” and “Santa Claus is Comin to Town”.

I remember the donkey one too.

“Rudolph Saves New Year” was pretty terrible too.

That was one of my favorite Christmas shows growing up. Yes, the beginning is sad, but it has a powerful message behind it. I still remember what the little angel told Nestor:

"Your ears can do a wondrous thing no other ears can do. The sounds they hear will guide you on a path that's straight and true. And you will save another as your mother once saved you."

Disney told a similar story with "The Small One." Also a very moving Christmas story.

In '77, Marlo Thomas did a made-for-TV remake of It's a Wonderful Life. This was before It's a Wonderful Life was a rediscovered phenomena, so a lot of people thought this was an original story.

The genders of George, Mary, and Clarence are reversed.

My husband and I tried to watch that Netflix Christmas movie with Kurt Russell...I don't think we made it 20 minutes.

Santa Claus: The Movie

I remember McDonalds had books for this movie in their happy meals when it came out in the mid-80's.

Now that is just false. I'd put it in the underrated Christmas movie category. I still use Arnold's rhythm when I name all of Santa's reindeer.
