Another great list of forgotten Christmas specials. I don't know if you've ever heard of this one, but may I suggest The Tiny Tree for the next list? The animation is mediocre but the simple story and powerful message really stuck with me.
For some reason, I vaguely remember Bluefoot- I think that was screened over Christmas on the CBBC segment on BBC1 in the early 1990s. I'm surprised to see Father Christmas on the list, but I guess the American networks haven't taken a shine to it, unlike here in the UK. It has been screened ever since its premiere in the early 1990s on Channel 4. I thought some of the other Briggs adaptations, like Ivor the Invisible or The Bear, were lesser known then that special. I have just checked out a few of them specials last year, and I was glad to have seen them. Cartoon Brew had an entry all about Ziggy's Gift, and mentions that some of the animation came from the legendary animator Eric Goldberg (of Aladdin's Genie fame). I also had issues with Williams' A Christmas Carol too, mainly as I felt it was rushed in places, but does has some lovely animation.
There are a lot of these I've not seen before expect for 9, 6, 3 & 1.
I never watched a lot of the Yogi movie so I can't say much about it; the Father Christmas one is after the Snowman, Santa even sees James with his Scraf & a different Snowman (Santa even comments about it) and have you seen the Snowman & the Snowdog that was released this Christmas?; I do remember this from CiTV when it was played, but I think that was the first time I saw the Forgotton Toys; this one I didn't know what it was... for 3 seconds when I saw what it was. I remember seeing this when I was young, but only the ending because that was the only thing that was taped. I didn't know it's name until you mentioned it Chad. Thank you!
