The Greatest Lil’ Animated Advent Calendar That Could returns for one more year of December Cartoons!
Remember us? Last year was kind of our biggest ever (see the 2011 side bar to your left.). However, I haven’t updated the site in almost a year. When was that last post made? The Super Bowl?! Yeesh…

Anyhoo, I’m hoping to pull off one more (potentially final?!) year of animated shenanigans. Since 2009, A Cartoon Christmas has posted at least one article – review, features, showcase, etc. – of a famous, infamous, or obscure animated Christmas Special every day in December leading up to the 25th. That makes SEVENTY-FIVE! And we desperately wanna get to an even ONE HUNDRED.
A while back I put out the feelers on one of the many podcasts I do to see if you guys wanted to see A Cartoon Christmas pull this shit off one more year. Not only there was a resounding “YES!”, many of you had suggestions, and even better, offered to volunteer! Twitter has been nasty about allowing me to access those @ replies, so I humbly ask that if you’re still interested, hit me again on teh Tweeterz, user name @cantista.
One of my favs from last year
So… what Christmas specials would you like us to cover?! Obviously, we have a prospective list in mind featuring classic prime-time Xmas specials of yore, special Xmas episodes from regularly aired shows, as well as Holiday obscurities, both of the “rightfully forgotten” and “hidden gem” variety.
Oh, and in case you couldn’t tell, we tend to play fast and loose with what constitutes a “Cartoon Christmas Special.” Let us know what you’d like to see in the comments below, and we’ll factor that in to what we cover in this our potentially final year.
Yo, Joe! They ain’t all classics…
