  2. 0:08 is that Snoke or Amon? If it’s Amon, DID STEVEN BLUM VOICE HIM?

  3. Is there anyway you can review the Japanese versions of Ironman, Wolverine, X-men and Blade?

    Can you also talk about the MTV series Good Vibes and Daria?

    And on a side note, I mention this all before, why don’t you review a classic horror like this one I’ve finally found after all these years after just seeing a few scenes of it and never knowing how it ended. It’s called Sorority Babes in the Slimeball Bowl-O-Rama. You might like it. Maybe.

    Also what do think of these TV series shows called:
    John Doe
    Forever Knight
    The Misfits (British Show)
    Misfits of Science (Movie and series)
    and The Zeta Project
    (I think some of these shows are like Sonic the Hedgehog a.k.a. Sonic Sat a.m. They all have incomplete ending.)

    P.S. Is there anyway you can review the Japanese versions of Ironman, Wolverine, X-men and Blade? I’d also really like to hear what you think about the FX series Archer and Chozen.

    P.S.S. And I never found out if you were going talk more about the Disney Afternoon shows Gummi Bears, Chip N Dale’s Rescue Rangers, Talespin(even the hour uncut movie special I found about it) and Darkwing Duck. Also you never answer my question, If you hate the Goof Troop song: “Gotta Be Gettin’ Goofy” then does that mean you hate The Darkwing Duck Rap?.

    • Dude, get a life. He is not your personal slave. And I think you’re missing the whole “Nostalgia” part of the Nostalgia Critic.

    • Why did you take the time to suggest all this stuff to him? You do realize he probably won’t even see this comment let alone look into any of it. I just hope you understand just how busy guys like these are online. Especially NC he has an entire website and company to run outside of the reviews, vlogs, and sketches. Next time I would recommend not wasting your time with something like this again. With that said It seems like you are at least a fan of his work so I’ll give you that just you have to be a bit more realistic than this man. I’m sure he appreciates the support but if he were look into every single fan request and do something for them each time my god I can’t even imagine how much work he would be stuck with till the end of his natural born life. Also you are asking way too much from the man in a comment. Why?… What do you think of this? What do you think of that? Will you do more of this? Are you doing more of that?… Jesus Christ… come on man.

    • I so wish there was a spam button just for you.

    • No they are horrible.Also Good Vibes sucked and Beavis and Butt head was better then Daria.And on a side note Sorority Babes in the Slime ball bowl-o-rama stars Linnea Quigley who is mentioned in this review and spoilers the evil imp dies .Also John Doe-7.9 on IMDB and got cancelled
      Forever Knight-aired 1992-1996 in syndication,not a Knight Rider sequel.
      The Misfits-nobody cares,the movie and the band are better.
      Misfits of Science-Courtney Cox was in it
      And the Zeta Project-Kurtwood Smith was in it
      (none of these shows are like Sonic the Hedgehog which was AKA a cartoon.)

      P.S. You already said this,but they aired on the G4 network.

      P.P.S.(not P.S.S)He reviewed the Disney Afternoon and I’m sure that the only time he will review any of these.And since Doug hasn’t answered your question let me take a shot at it,Yes he hates the Darkwing duck rap.

      I apologize to everyone else,just tired of this guy.

    • He talks about Daria in his Top 20 TV Shows vid. It used to be his favorite show until he saw Avatar: The Last Airbender.

    • OK, you’re either a very dedicated troll or you’re officially delusional.

      First, you’re not Doug’s boss nor are you him “tight”. Therefore, you have no reason to expect Doug to take time out of his busy schedule to review all of those movies and TV shows that you’re asking him to. You clearly have no clue as to what the process is of making a decent video is. A script needs to be written (or at least notes taken). It has to be filmed, then edited. The process can take weeks, depending on the material. Why would he do that just for you? And for free, no less? What makes you think that your interests are so important? It’d be one thing if you just had ONE TV show or movie that you wanted him to review, but you listed at least TEN things, and you’re not offering him a dime for his services. If you’re passionate about the material, just review all this shit yourself and stop being a spamming moron!

    • No. There is no way he’ll ever do any of that.

    • You’d think after so many down votes the system would just prevent the person from commenting…seriously, how many weeks in a row are you going to post the same thing thinking it’s going to do something? World doesn’t revolve around OmegaX2000, breh.

  4. Broderick won a TONY and was nominated for ONE Golden Globe, but he hasn’t it made it to an actual Oscar nomination.

  5. If he can teleport himself to other planets and blow them up solely on the power of his obsession with Christmas, why can’t he protect himself from Michael Bay or M. Night without other people having to save his ass? Furthermore, for a guy who always seems to have a gun around that he’s happy to threaten his staff with, he seems to forget he owns it when ACTUAL big bads show up…

  6. Omg that ending was awesome

  7. Oh, my God, that ending. That ending. Cree Summer, marry me.

  8. This is the best cameo since Mara Wilson.

  9. You do actually know they were saying “Elfin”, right?

  10. I remember watching this on VHS. I absolutely loved it!
    “Play is work, work is play” sounds like what Big Brother from George Orwell’s 1984 would say!

  11. Raise your hands, who else agrees that Dr. Claw should be the new Santa?

  12. Wowsers, indeed.

  13. The holding cell is where Santa keeps Krampus most of the year.

  14. Damn, I can’t believe you got Cree Summer to do a bit, cool beans.

  15. Just so you wonder Nostalgia Critic, Penny becomes a Secret Agent in the new online CGI Inspector Gadget series.

  16. I love this special around the holidays. So much so that I now own a copy of it.

  17. I can tell this special will already be better than the live action movies.

    Way to go, Doug. You destroyed a planet more than Trump will destroy this one.

    Someone should make “Patrick Stewart Saves Christmas,” and I don’t know why.

    The elves have really dirty elfing mouths.

    I agree that Dr. Claw ruining Christmas is twin clones of Hitler from Superman at Earth’s End levels of weird and stupid.

    The Cinema Snob should really do a review on Linnea Quigley’s Horror Workout, now that you brought it up.

    Great job on the Dr. Santa Claw sketch, especially the Claw glove. This is about as funny as the time Dr. Robotnic from Sonic the Hedgehog tried to take over Christmas.

    Gadget said “SHAKE,” not “shit,” and I agree twhat he does to Santa is horrifying.

    This special is no Ernest Saves Christmas, …but it’s still better than Kirk Cameron’s Saving Christmas.

    • Trump will NOT destroy this planet!!! He will HELP it! Stop being a damn sore loser! Trump is good for us, you’ll see!

      • Let’s leave our political views out of this, shall we? It has no place here and I myself am personally tired of reading these “Us VS them” political ravings.

        Just because *you* love Donald Trump doesn’t mean that everyone does or has to. Stop ranting and raving like a maniac whenever someone disses Trump on this site. No one who has ever served as president has been liked by absolutely everyone, and Trump is a VERY polarizing figure, so it’s inevitable that there will be people who dislike him and what he stands for (whatever that might happen to be). Everyone isn’t a Trump groupie like you. Grow up and deal with it.

      • The Real Silverstar

        Geez, if you’re going to kirk out every time someone cracks wise about Trump on the internet, it’s going to be a very long 4 years for you.

        The man hasn’t even been sworn in yet…he may end up being a good President and he may not( I didn’t vote for him personally but I don’t want to see him fail because I live in the US too and a failed Presidency is bad for everyone: I’m not getting a savior vibe from Trump yet but we’ll see), but in any regard NO public figure is above being mocked. So my advice is to get some thicker skin and deal with it.

      • To people like me, Trump is to this universe, what Lex Luthor is in the DC Universe. YOU’LL see.

  18. HFS!!!! Another celebrity appearance on the Nostalgia Critic!!!!!!

  19. I honestly thought he was going to show a clip from Inspector Gadget on Netflix at the end. But …. what do you even say to an ending like that?!

  20. an odd one to start criticmas on….start using crticmas lol

  21. Well, that ending was amazing. It makes up for a solid review. Wonder what wretched schlock he will get to this year….then again, where can he go in terms of a mature storyline that he hasn’t done already?

  22. But isn’t insanity that only Gadet can give us why we would watch it anyway? In all serious this not a bad special.

  23. HOLY S***! They actually got Cree Summer to guest star in this!?

    Channel Awesome is run by a bunch of Gods.

  24. “With Santa’s reputation ruined, every parent will have no choice but to buy toys from MAD’s shell corporations!”

    See? Even I can write a better motivation in five seconds.

  25. ….And yet somehow Penny would be a refreshing step-up from Donald Trump.

    • She’d probably Tweet a lot less.


      • Shut up and calm down! People aren’t required to love Trump just because he won, and you don’t have to lose your shit everyone someone criticizes him on this site. If everyone were only allowed to praise our current president elect, then that would be a dictatorship, not a democracy, which is what we have.

        You can love Trump all you want, but you need to understand that everyone isn’t going to worship him and you also need to be respectful of others’ opinions, even when they don’t coincide with your own.

  26. A REALTransformers Fan

    Did my boi just make a King of the Hill reference?

  27. Man Cree is so fucking cool.

  28. My god, this vidme player is absolute shit…..

  29. 2 things.
    1. There’s an Inspector Gadget show on Netflix where Penny does actually get credit.
    2. CREE SUMMER!!!

    • The Inspector Gadget series is produced by DHX Media and only airs on Netflix in the U.S. It airs on Boomerang in France and on Teletoon in Canada. The show was supposed to air on Boomerang U.S., but Turner dropped the ball on the deal. Anyway, in the 2015 series, Penny is about 16 (I believe) and is a full blown special agent.
