The Official Top 10 Anything...

  1. Twisted Tails

    Now this list is really coming back to me. I watched Sesame Street in the 1990s, then Winzie's House... I'm sure that was a puppet show and so was Between the Lions I guess. Now I know notice of few things since Fraggle Rock and Winzie's House were children shows.

    - Red Fraggle and Winzie the Dragon have pigtails
    - Both shows were filmed in Canada

    Arthur will always be in my number one list. I saw it ever since it premereed on television. As a young child, I was even introduced to Arthur books. Unfortunately, we have to give those books away when I got older.

    Oh well, thank you for posting. Those shows just always come back to me.

    The rest of America sure is lucky: when I was in school, "Study Hall" wasn't a subject, or a place where you killed time inbetween classes or anything, in our schools, "Study Hall" was PUNISHMENT. If you misbehaved in class, didn't finish homework or schoolwork, you were sent to "Study Hall" in place of something like going out for recess, or going on a field trip, or some other kind of pleasurable activity.

    Since when did modern sitcoms start having theme songs again? I honestly can't imagine what a theme song would be like for either of these shows... O.O

    They're rather short, but still catchy. Though the cast credits still appear after the openings have ended.

    Okay, for IAVMMCM to be on the top of ANY top ten list, there's something seriously wrong there...

    I like it better than The Muppet Christmas Carol.

    After doing that list I do feel surprised that I didn't include The Santa Clause or The Santa Clause 3, or Elf. I wonder if I should have neglected one or both of the Home Alone movies (they take place around Christmas, and I like to consider them Christmas movies, but should they be conbsidered Christmas films?). I had also wanted to include Deck the Halls, but then decided against it.

    On the subject, here are my favorite non-Muppet Christmas movies, in alphabetical order.

    1. A Christmas Story
    2. Dodgeball: A True Underdog Story (not a Christmas movie, but it was around Christmastime several years ago when I first saw it, and I kind of watch it every Christmas as a ritual)
    3. Elf
    4. Home Alone
    5. Home Alone 2: Lost in New York
    6. Home Alone 3
    7. On the 2nd Day of Christmas
    8. The Santa Clause 2
    9. Stalag 17 (it counts somewhat since it takes place during Christmastime)
    10. Super Mario Bros. (same as Dodgeball)

    To each his/her own, my friend. Remember that.

    Here's my list:

    Top 10 Christmas Specials/movies/Episodes:

    10. How the Grinch Stole Christmas (the original from the '60s, of course)
    9. Rankin-Bass' Santa Claus is Comin' to Town (my favorite part is when the villain calls Santa Claus a "nonconformist and a rebel." There's a Santa Claus I can follow! ;))
    8. Spongebob Christmas Special
    7. Christmas Every Day (anyone else remember this? It was a Family Channel TV Movie from 1996)
    6. Home Alone I and II (tie)
    5. Just about every variation of A Christmas Carol (MCC is my favorite, but I especially like the ones with a woman in the Scrooge role, just because they offer an especially different take)
    4. Full House's season 8 Christmas episode (it was the funniest and least cliched of their Christmas episodes, at least for the time it came out.
    3. It's a Very Merry Muppet Christmas Movie
    2. The Simpsons Episode "She of Little Faith" (the one where Lisa becomes a Buddhist). It means all the more to me now that I too am a Buddhist in a Christian family.
    1. A Christmas Story (didn't see that coming, did ya? ;))

    I was planning on listing the best Christmas episodes of TV shows, but now I'm trying to decide if I should make seperate lists for animated and live action shows.
