Favorite Characters from Rankin/Bass Christmas Specials – Round One

Arthur Rankin, Jr. and Jules Bass collaborated on some of the most famous made-for-TV Christmas specials of all time. They were either animated or stop-action and quickly became holiday traditions for kids of all ages.

The shows I included are:

  • Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer
  • Frosty the Snowman
  • Santa Claus Is Comin’ to Town
  • Jack Frost
  • The Year Without a Santa Claus
  • The Life and Adventures of Santa Claus
  • ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas
  • The First Christmas: The Story of the First Christmas Snow
  • Rudolph’s Shiny New Year
  • Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July
  • Nestor, the Long-Eared Donkey

In the bracket, I tried to separate the characters from the same shows, so they don’t match up right away.

The deadline is Sunday evening, December 17.
