star What Is Your Favorite TV Christmas Episodes?

Do you have a favorite Christmas episode, either drama or comedy tv series, that you love to watch year after year?

My favorite is a couple of Bob Newhart ones I enjoy and Mary Tyler Moore Christmas episode that I must watch every year. We have the dvd collection of them.

There are many more I enjoy as well, I like the Home Improvement ones. The Odd Couple has a parody of, A Christmas Carol, that is funny. M.A.S.H. has one titled, Death Takes a Holiday, it is a tearful touching one that I like. I also like, Little House on the Prairie Christmas. I will watch any of them that are Christmas but that is a few of my favorites.

I love the Home Improvement episodes as well and never get tired of watching them. They are by far my favorite.

There are also two Jon and Kate plus 8 Christmas episodes that I really like.....they were filmed a couple years ago back when they were a *happy* family. It was fun to see them Christmas shopping, making cookies and gingerbread houses, learning new Christmas songs, caroling, etc.

I watched two of the Home Improvement episodes recently, the first time I've seen complete episodes. I was disappointed in how much the laugh track was "sweetened" beyond any natural laughter from the audience. The reaction to every joke sounded so fake.

I´m a sitcom freak....so I love plenty of holiday episodes

Prince of Bel Air - The Episode where baby Niki will be christened and Will boasts that he hired BoyzIIMen to sing at the ceremony....of course he was lying...but in the end....BoyzIIMen suddenly appear at church and sing Silent Night acapella

Roseanne - They don´t have the regular cosy Christmas episodes...but I love them, because they give food for thought

Home Improvement - All of the Christmas episodes...all of them are festive and funny

King Of Queens

Little House on the prairie

the Waltons (if there are any Christmas epsiodes....I´m sure I would like them)

There is a Walton's Christmas movie---saw it last year and it was good.

My favorite is the Little House on the Prairie episode where Mary & Laura and grown and married and everyone is snowed in at Ma & Pa's on Christmas Eve. The adults sit around the table and tell stories of Christmases past.

My second favorite is the other LHOTP Christmas episode where Laura sells her horse, Bunny, to Mr. Olson to buy a stove for Ma, & Ma & Mary make the same shirt for Pa. There is a scene where Carrie bought a star for a penny to top the tree---I don't know if it's in the same episode or if it's another episode entirely.

LHOTP & The Cosby Show are my favorite tv series of all time.

I also liked thata Fresh Prince episode and I liked the first one that they had when Will wanted to decorate the house with Ashley and they went all crazy. All the neighbors were upset and wanted them to take it down. I liked that one!
