Arguably the most popular kiddie Christmas TV special ever, this Rankin-Bass masterpiece about "the most famous reindeer of all" tugs at the nostalgia heartstrings with its title tune, memorable stop-motion characters (from Yukon Cornelius and Hermey the Elf to the Abomidable Snowman -- "Bumbles bounce!") and universal themes of misfits finding friendship. The show first aired in 1964, and has become a perennial favorite ever since.
