Not your average family Christmas films...
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)
Frosty makes his first American TV special appearance.
Christmas Cracker (1963)
Made by the Godfather of all animators Norman McLaren (and some of his cronies).
A Christmas Carol (1971)
One of Britain’s most loved animators Richard Williams won an Oscar for this Dickens adaptation.
