Pick: What Christmas specials would you watch in the 1980s?

Take your pick from Pee-wee, Perry, Kermit and Keanu.

There was no shortage of holiday specials in the 1980s. Everyone from classic crooners to popular cartoons got their own Christmas shows. In what other decades could you find Dean Martin singing with an orca… and He-Man's nemesis Skeletor learning the spirit of the season?

Let's look at some of the most memorable specials from the Eighties, year by year. 

If you could only pick one, which would you watch? See how your taste in Christmas specials compares to others!

  1. The Brothers Grimm, Hanna-Barbera or the family Osmond?
  2. What floats your boat: high-pitched singing, shtick or Shamu?
  3. Are you in the mood for toons or tunes this yule?
  4. Tootie, Pooh or Como?
  5. Will you spend Christmas in Lebanon, Little House on the Prairie, or with Dickens?
  6. Stop-motion, swords or Punky?
  7. Keanu, Kermit or an Osmond?
  8. Do you prefer a cartoon cat, a M*A*S*H vet, or a Sound of Music legend?
  9. Children's television was pretty weird in the 1980s.
  10. Would you like spend your Christmas with horror, with Homer, or on the lanai?

I got 69%. I'm a sucker for XMAS Specials. As long as Pee-Wee Herman does NOT come into my theater.

1988 needs a "none of the above" option. I prefer my Care Bears as stuffed animals (I have three), I never heard of Tattertown and I can't stand Pee-Wee Herman to this day. He's like Steve Urkel and Sheldon Cooper--the only proper thing to do is have 'em taken out and shot, the stuck-up, stupid, annoying little twits.

That's perfectly fine if you do not agree. I don't agree with everyone either. We all have our own opinions...

Can't get a score -- I refuse to answer #9.
John here's what you do to get a score. Click on one item #9. Get score. Take off 10% for score. Then pretend like you never answered #9.

: I really wish you wouldn't change the programming on here. I've got a routine that I watch every week night. Please don't change.

I never saw any of those Christmas specials. The only one that sounds good is Julie Andrews’ The Sound of Christmas.

48%, The He-Man/She-Ra is the greatest Xmas special since the Stars Wars one.
