The Christmas season is more than exchanging presents, and attending parades and parties, it is also our best time to reconnect with old friends and far away family. Something about the nostalgia of the holiday season sends us all back to our seven-year old selves, and nothing jumpstarts that journey like classic Christmas cartoons. No matter how old we get, these Christmas cartoons prompt us to put on our pajamas and cuddle up close to the TV with a warm bowl of popcorn. Share the joy and excitement of these Ten All-Time Greatest Christmas Cartoons with your kiddos and let the tradition live on.
10 All-Time Greatest X-Mas Cartoons
This list is in chronological order and highlights classic cartoons from four decades, so get the popcorn ready and silence your cellphones for a full-on binge-watching session.
Toy Tinkers ~ 1949
Mister Magoo’s Christmas Carol ~ 1962
Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer ~ 1964
A Charlie Brown Christmas ~ 1965
Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas ~ 1966
So many timeless characters and cartoons make this first list it is hard to highlight just one as our favorite, but after much debate the team here at Carolina Hyundai chose Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas slightly ahead of Rudolph.
Other classic Claymation cartoons in the series with Rudolph the red-Nosed Reindeer begin our next batch of the best All-Time Christmas cartoons, but our favorite from this list was by far Mickey’s Christmas Carol. Combining the most famous Christmas story with the most famous cartoon character was the unanimous deciding factor.
Frosty the Snowman ~ 1969
Santa Clause is Coming to Town ~ 1970
‘Twas the Night Before Christmas ~ 1974
Emmet Otter’s Jug-Band Christmas ~ 1977
Mickey’s Christmas Carol ~ 1984
Take a night or a weekend and enjoy all ten of these classic Christmas cartoons with your family and friends, and have a safe and joyous 2017 Holiday Season.
