"Beyond Tomorrow" (aka "Beyond Christmas")
The 1935 British version of "A Christmas Carol" (aka "Scrooge") starring Seymour Hicks
"The Christmas Toy"---a Jim Henson production from the 1980s that always chokes me up
"The Box of Delights"---a six-part British TV adaptation of a children's novel that is (unfortunately) available only in PAL
"The Christmas that Almost Wasn't"---made for the kiddie matinee trade in the 1960s, it's cheaply made, but delightful
I'll be back if I think of some more!
The television ads for "The Christmas That Almost Wasn't" were as much unintentional fun as the movie is in spots. The announcer, "...this Saturday...half pause...& Sunday...half pause... at a theater near you." It sounded a little robotic.
