If you missed our family Christmas shorts the other weekend, and if the likes of Arthur Christmas, The Grinch, and Elf are starting to wear thin, then here’s a few festive oldies from the 60s and 70s that you and the kids might not have seen before…

Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (1964)

50 mins (starts from 9:44)
An American classic this one. Beautiful animation, and a sweet story to boot.

Frosty the Snowman (1969)

25 mins
Frosty makes his first American TV special appearance.

Christmas Cracker (1963)

9 mins
Made by the Godfather of all animators Norman McLaren (and some of his cronies).

A Christmas Carol (1971)

25 mins
One of Britain’s most loved animators Richard Williams won an Oscar for this Dickens adaptation.
