My daughter insisted I sit and watch the terrifyingly awful Barney's first christmas with her. Its one of the worst things I've seen ever, including a dirt cheap production video of the Rainbow team made about 8 years after they'd been kicked from mainstream tv . Here's an enchanting amazon review from a clever person:

This Barney is not good. The tall girl is good, but the other kids can't sing. The set seems like a run-down high-school production. And what's the deal with slow songs? Kids don't want that. And the adults are geeks. I'm looking forward to when my 2 year-old triplets graduate to Pee Wee.

   The Snowman got a lot of US play in the 80s on HBO.

   No Charlie Brown or A Christmas Story in the UK? Seriously?


   ...


   Ziggy's Gift is actually a UK production by Richard Williams - "Flat Sweet Flat" is on the wall, etc.

  More importantly, Richard "Roger Rabbit/Thief and the Cobbler" Williams did this Oscar-winning animated version with Alistair Simm. Animation doesn't get much better than this.
