Rudolph’s Shiny New Year – Baby New Year is missing and a certain red-nosed reindeer leads the search.

Jack Frost (1976) – The resourceful cold-weather elf turns human to court a pretty maiden – and then must recover his icy powers to save her from a crafty rival.
A Miser Brothers Christmas – Santa Claus and the mischievous brothers Heat Miser and Snow Miser are the targets of yuletide treachery from that sneaky blowhard North Wind.
Santa’s Magical Stories Bonus Special:
Rudolph and Frosty’s Christmas in July – The feature length delight about what happens when a certain reindeer’s nose stops shining!
Our Take: I remember watching all of these only because I worked in a video store when I was much younger. My kids on the other hand have not seen some of them like Pinocchio’s Christmas or Jack Frost. I can say that I do own a VHS of The Leprechaun’s Christmas Gold but unfortunately no way to watch it to show the kids. I was glad to get this screener to show that kids the classics. I love having holiday videos on, even if it is background noise and nobody is watching it. I enjoy singing along and just listening to these holiday favorites, especially The Grinch. You can also read my review on Warner Bros. new DVD, Frosty’s Winter Wonderland.
