Power Rankings: Rankin/Bass Stop-Motion Christmas Specials

“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer”
The most famous reindeer who saved Christmas. You can now double that clown nose you used on Halloween as a holiday-themed get-up!
“Jack Frost”
After getting a look at the blond-haired, blue-eyed Elisa, Jack Frost decides he wants to become human. The story stretches from Christmas through Groundhog Day and is even narrated by a singing groundhog, voiced by Buddy Hackett.
“The Little Drummer Boy”
The Vienna Boys Choir provided music for this special, following the trail of a young boy as tries to catch up with a caravan of kings, ultimately finding them visiting a manger in Bethlehem.
“Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town”
A smash hit originally broadcasted in 1970 and still played time and again in the month of December. This movie is the definition of a Christmas classic.
“The Year Without a Santa Claus”
“The Year Without a Santa Claus” is great, old-style film with cool villains, but Santa prevails. I remember watching this one as a kid.
“The First Christmas: The Story of the First Christmas Snow”
“The First Christmas Snow” is a heart-warming story, that being just great holiday feeling, perfect for this time of the year.
“The Leprechaun’s Christmas Gold”
This 1981 classic gives us the story of a struggle over gold the days before Christmas on an uncharted island where leprechauns live.
“Rudolph’s Shiny New Year”
Father Time enlists the help of Santa Claus to find Happy the Baby New Year. Santa sends Rudolph because only he can make it through the snow and fog and the sands of time.
“Pinocchio’s Christmas”
One of my favorite children's stories recreated as a Christmas classic!
“Nestor, the Long-Eared Christmas Donkey”
Cute story about Nestor the Long-Eared Donkey who no one likes and gets cast aside. He meets a cherub and later escorts Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem to give birth to Jesus. He becomes a hero.
