It’s the most wonderful time of the year and let’s talk about what makes it so great here! Santa Claus is Coming to Town and sure he could bring you something new and modern but this time of year it's all about tradition, the memories and simply having a Wonderful Chrismastime, so are you hoping for some retro gifts or expecting a lump of coal? What's on your nostalgia inspired Christmas list? Since it’s Beginning to Look Like Christmas how are you going to celebrate and spend the rest of the year? Maybe Rocking Around the Christmas Tree with some Jingle Bell Rock or will there be Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire while you watch Fred Savage search for the perfect $6.00 Christmas present for Winnie Cooper in The Wonder Years? Don’t have a Blue Christmas, make this thread a Home for the Holidays, Master Splinter commands it!

It's not even thanksgiving yet! ._. Thanksgiving's fun because that's the one Thursday of the year where we put on TNA and have a good laugh at it.

But as for Christmas, absolutely love this time of year! Bring on the Christmas carols, the cookies, the snow! :D

I absolutely LOVED The Christmas Toy when I was a kid, I even named the dog we got around that time Rugby after the tiger main character. :)
And I think they only actually aired it on tv once (maybe twice)? I haven't seen it since it originally aired back in 1986. I might seriously have to pick it up.

Here's some wonderful cozy vintage 1982' Christmas Commercial goodness, so sit back, snuggle by the fire and eat your chocolately christmas treats and embrace these magical commercials that hit the heart. Enjoy NintenZoids! :* Oh, and this was all before my time, i was born in 84' so i don't remember any of these. Commercial wise, it was all about 89-93'(All gradually wet to she-ra hell after the mid 90's imo) for me...And they absolutely amazing. Yet It pains me to know that i wasn't born in the later 70's. :P TheShpyder, you lucky dog! The 80's were a childs heaven, the same could be said for the early 90's as well. :*

Nice to hear somebody else praise this wonderful movie instead of the generic public domain picks of the Christmasy' litter such as Charlie Brown's Christmas, The Grinch stole Christmas, Rankin/Bass's Rudolph the Red nose reindeer, you get the idea. ;) A Christmas Toy is quite possibly the most magical Christmas special i've ever had the privilege of seeing through my zany pee wee years.

I managed to catch it on VHS in the earlier 90's, would of been amazing to see it debut on TV back in 86! Now, the last time i did watch it, which was also the 2nd time entire life was back in Christmas 2010, and my god i was it an amazing experience, it brings out your inner child and puts a big goofy smile on your face. They don't make them like they used to!

Just a heads up, the new DVD release doesn't including Kermit the frog's introduction, you've got to snag the 1993 VHS release for that. ;)

And here's another version. ;)

And finally they also created a spiritual sequel to The Christmas Toy Called 'The Secret of Toys' which was released back in 94, which is now available on DVD. I've never seen it before, i may actually pick it up!

Yeah, loved this when I was a kid. My parents recorded it off of TV and we happily watched it every year...until my parents recorded over the tape years later.

I watched it for the first time in like 20 years last year because it was on Netflix. I couldn't believe how much I still had memorized.

This thread now makes me feel bad which is the total opposite direction of the intent! As an 80's/90's kid I don't remember The Christmas Toy, guess I need to search that out on Netflix.

Anybody ever have/play Rattle Me Bones? I got that one year for Christmas like in 89 or 90 or something and recently busted it out. What a great game.

Christmas is my favorite time of the year, but what really bugs me is how early so many businesses start up with it.

I was in a Borders Books store maybe 4 years ago, on the night before Halloween...and suddenly, they start playing Andy Williams' "The Most Wonderful Time of the Year" on the storewide radio! I looked up from my book, grumbled "wrong holiday, you idiots", and resumed my reading.

God, guns, and guts made America; let's keep all three.
