Smile Oh too many to choose from do we have to pick one?

Great thread topic Georgia!
Charlie brown is great!!
I love the all seasonal repeaters, Alice's Restaurant at Turkey day,
Burl Ives in Rudolph the rednosed reindeer,
A Christmas Carol, that old one with the alternating black/white and color
and that cute one with the boy and beebee gun and everyone telling him he'll shoot his eye out... A Christmas story. We used to hear that the hockey pucks will break your teeth out if you don't wear a mouth guard... Course I think there's something to that one...
Oh they are all good!!

I like that dorky animated claymation type show with Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer. The one with the abominable snow man and the dentist. It's been around for about 50years now.

The Christmas Story is a classic...especially when the kid sticks his tongue to the frozen pole

Polar Express

Those are all great! The old Rankin / Bass (sp?) claymation ones were great. And Charlie Brown is good. I always liked the cartoon of the Grinch, and the new one with Jim Carry is pretty good too.

Have you all seen The Polar Express? I think its awesome and destined to become a great classic just like the others above. The computer animation is utterly scary in how real it is. I soon forgot that they weren't real actors. My kids (ages 2 and 6) just love that movie!

We took a ride yesterday on the Western MD railroad. They had the "Santa Express". It was pretty cool. It wasn't quite as big as a Baldwin 2-8-4 Berkshire locomotive, but Mountain Thunder is a 2-8-0 honest-to-goodness-steam-engine (diesels---yuck!) and it blew smoke and coal dust all over us. It was great! I asked Santa (he was on there with his elf giving out candy canes and talking to the kiddies) for a helicopter again. He didn't say yes. Been asking for one of those for thirty years and still haven't gotten it. Probably get socks again

Without a doubt for me the Holiday movie of choice is 'It's a Wonderful Life' with Jimmy Stewart.

Polar Express

I love all the classics at 41 i even feel "its a wonderful life" a yearly must see!

But my kids 2 and 9 Can't get enough of the Polar Express!

Oh yeah..Spencer N.C. is the home of the N.C. transportation musuem. They've got a PILE of locomotives the 1925 Shay being my favortie.

Jim dont count the diesels out...I rode a '58 GM this summer and it was awesome... and my 2 year old and I rode with the engineer in a '54 yesterday for an hour. My daughter and wife enjoyed time in a pullman with Santa...but we blew the whistle at every road crossing.

if your ever around and like trains...its a good time!

We just watched Polar Express last night on Disney for the first time. was excellent!

I loved it when the kids are told to "just believe"'s magical.....

another line which stuck with me is when the conductor...voiced over by Tom Hanks says, "It not about the destination.....but whether or not you get on and go for the ride".... I think that hits home with alot of folks here.

I still love the already mentioned classics though.......Oh ya ....can't froget the Grinch!!

Love the cartoon Grinch.
Still love Rudolph with Burl Ives.
My all time favorite hands down, no comparison is Mr. Magoo's A Christmas Carol. Very rarely see it on the tube these days though.

More on Diesels vs. Steam

Well, there is one diesel I really Thomas the Tank Engine, it's Diesel 10! Those with small kids will know about him. Diesel 10 hates steam engines and wants to turn them all into scrap iron. He has this big steamshovel claw mounted on top, called "Pinchy". Diesel 10 likes to come up beside steam engines and use Pinchy to chop them all up. He's kind of the bad guy My two year old is almost afraid of him. I have to laugh!

Forgot how much I liked trains 'til I had a son. They're all pretty cool. I've been an engineer for 13 years now and they still haven't let me drive one yet

Maybe one of these days
