Thanksgiving and Christmas Specials

Holiday TV specials are like a warm mug of cocoa with marshmallows: sweet and comforting. We've rounded up this season's can't-miss specials, plus some worthy underdogs and a few new additions to the classic-holiday-special canon. Whether you like 'em heartwarming, quirky and funny, or futuristic, there's something here to get your family in the holiday mood. Though not all these shows feature families (or even humans!), they embody the spirit of togetherness, warmth, and tradition.
