The Ultimate Guide to Christmas Specials

Christmas TV specials, limited series and movies are bigger than ever these days from now until the New Year, you’ll be able to find some festive yule-tide programming every night of the week. From the traditional viewing of It’s a Wonderful Life, the different versions of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, to baking shows and live music specials, we’ve got them all listed on the new Christmas TV Specials page. (Since not all of the networks list their specials early, this list will be updated throughout the coming weeks, so check back often for new additions!)

Two Versions of Mickey Mouse's 'Orphan's Benefit' - Video of the Day


This is so interesting...Walt Disney created the cartoon short, Orphan's Benefit in 1934 and then completely redid the film in color in 1941 using the same soundtrack. Frame by frame, the second film is almost an exact reproduction but with updated animation stylings of the characters. In fact, it is said that the only dialogue change was the very last line where Donald's line is changed from "Ah, nuts!" to "Ah Phooey!," something that Mr. Duck was known for saying by 1941. Here are the two films side by side.
