One of my favorite parts of Christmas are all the nostalgic Christmas Specials that air on TV.
So many greats that get me all sentimental and trigger memories of past Christmases from all though out my life.
Some of my favs include: The Grinch (the Chuck Jones version, not the crappy live action one)...the film "A Christmas Story"...the original Muppets Christmas...Charlie Brown...and the Mickey Mouse Christmas Carol.
The ultimate Christmas special...in my opinion (as you can probably guess from the caricature above) is "Merry Christmas Mr. Bean"
It's got such a good balance of comedy and Christmas.
You get to follow Mr. Bean through every stage of the season.
Mr. Bean playing with the nativity scene and all his crazy expressions while he's conducting the band...gets me every time.
And not to mention the turkey-on-the-head gag that EVERY other TV show ripped off after it initially aired.
(I'm lookin at YOU "Friends")
Rowan Atkinson...genius physical comedian...He's like the Charlie Chaplin of the 21st century.
anyways...What are YOUR fav Christmas specials?
