  1. I made love to Christmas once…I got a real bad case of Jingle Balls afterwards…

  2. I’m dissapointed, Doug. How could you possibly forget about what you claimed to be your favourite film of all time, Brazil? Have you forgotten that it too is set around christmas time? Hell, as a cynical human being, I watch it EVERY YEAR just to prove to myself that I hate christmas and myself. Shame on you, Doug, pure and utter shame on you.

  3. Okay, so here are my thoughts on this list.

    #12: Never heard of it.

    #11: Never heard of this exact special.

    #10: I read the book as a kid, but never knew this existed.

    #9: Grew up watching this movie and still enjoy it.

    #8: Never saw the original, just the newer one and didn’t like it.

    #3: Grew up watching this and still enjoy it.

    #2: I’ve only seen 3 versions of Christmas Carol. The Mickey Mouse one, the Kelsey Grammer one and the Jim Carrey one. I like all three of them but I think my favorite is the Jim Carrey one.
