  1. Oh, I'd love to see a documentary about Christmas on TV! What a great idea. It should be, like 4 hours long--each hour should focus on the historically significant episodes, music specials, animation, and TV movies. In 2004, there a doc "The Christmas Special Christmas Special" that aired on Bravo and then Trio, that attempted this--it was quite good. Would love to see something much bigger and longer. LOVE THIS IDEA! Thanks Sherry.

  2. I agree with Joanna, Sherry--would love to see that doc. And great that you gave a shout out (sing out) to the singing in Muppet Christmas Carol. The songs are marvelous.
