Game Part 1: Christmas Screen Shots

How well do you know Christmas entertainment? Let's play a game! Jeff from Name That Christmas Special website generously shared with me a group of screen shots taken from Christmas episodes, specials and movies. Can you identify what program each screen shot is taken from?

Play along by leaving your answer in the comments below. PLEASE identify only one screen shot--let's give everyone a chance to play along. Some are easy, some are harder. Bonus points: if you can name what specific episode of the TV series some of these are pulled from or the original date of the movie or special. This is just for fun--there are no prizes except bragging rights. Here goes:


#1 A Christmas Carol (Maryam Sarshar)


#2 A Christmas Story (Phairhead)

#3 TV episode of Benson (Joseph Mello)

#4 National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation (Kiki Howell)


#5 Home Alone (Joanna)


#6 Frosty the Snowman (Donna)


#7 It's a Wonderful Life--colorized! (Patrick)

#8 Disney's Small One (Ed South)


#9 Pee-Wee's Playhouse Christmas Special (Penny)


#10 Elf (RigbyMel)


#11 He-Man & She-Ra: A Christmas Special (Kevin Bowman)


#12 Disney's I'll Be Home for Christmas (DwWashburn)

  10. Would #12 be I'll Be Home for Christmas? I know that Jonathan Taylor Thomas did a Christmas movie sometime during Home Improvement but I never saw it.

  11. #11 is He-Man, She-Ra: A Christmas Special. Phairhead posted it above, but I'd have recognized Orko anyway.
