MD Poll: Charlie in Charge

When it comes to classic cartoon Christmas specials, Movie Dearest readers prefer a little melancholy in their merriment, as witnessed by the Charles Schultz chestnut A Charlie Brown Christmas being named your all-time favorite of the genre in our latest MD Poll.

Seasonal cynicism continued with the remainder of the top three, Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer (watch this for proof of the latter). Of course, there does need to be a little holiday malaise for our toon underdogs to overcome, which is perhaps why these perennial favorites have stood the test of time so well.

See the comments section below for the complete results.
