Everyone loves an underdog story, and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer is undeniably one such story.
It is a classic story about the reindeer with the red nose of whom it is sung,
All of the other reindeer,
Used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolph
Join in any reindeer games.
Prospects are bleak, but all of that is about to change.
Great Christmas music classics including "Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas" and "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer" make this show really stand out.
Hermey the aspiring dentist, Yukon Cornelius, Abominable, and yes, Rudolph are the most beloved stop-motion Christmas characters ever created. This cute and quirky Christmas movie's nostalgia value is through the roof. It's a hit for children and grown-ups alike. A must-watch on your animated Christmas movies list!
Reminiscent of Christmas because of the snowy landscape and rich reds and greens worn by the characters, Anastasia is the perfect watch this time of year. The film also has a music box feel throughout that makes it homogenous with Christmas feelings.
Anastasia has a happy life living as a Russian princess. Little does she suspect that her life is to be suddenly pulled apart into unrecognizable pieces in a short time.
When revolution strikes, she escapes the palace only to be knocked out and awakening with no remembrance of her past. Her only clue is a necklace reading, "Together in Paris". Naturally, she wishes to go to Paris and see if she can piece her life back together.
Along the way, she meets an ambitious young man also struggling to find a place after the revolution. His present goal is to obtain a reward offered by the Dowager Empress for reuniting her to the lost princess Anastasia. This young man, Dimitri, will use any means to find at least a look-alike to present to the Dowager Empress and escape with the reward before his plot is discovered.
And so he and "Anya", as Anastasia now calls herself, are tossed together to discover the true past together.

This cartoon follows the classic story about St. Nicholas as a young man giving away his inheritance to the poor. St. Nicholas' first act of generosity is displayed when he saves a young boy about his own age from a life of slavery. The two become friends as Adrian pursues Nicholas in all his future adventures.
When Adrian runs into a woodcutter who has no other way to escape his debts except by selling his daughters into a life of sin, Adrian immediately runs to Nicholas for help.
That night, Nicholas drops three bags of gold down the chimney of the woodcutter thus starting the Santa coming down the chimney tradition. Nicholas' example finally wins the conversion of Adrian, the woodcutter and his daughters as well as the slave trader.
When Nicholas becomes Bishop of Myra, a great persecution breaks out and he is captured and imprisoned. After Constantine takes over the empire and the government, Nicholas is set free and he returns to Myra to find a thriving Christian community.
Adrian tells him that it was his example of generosity which prompted the Christians to rebuild the Cathedral and continue living virtuous lives all through the persecution.
