  1. How come on the family channel they play all the old Santa Claus is coming to town, the year without Santa Claus, Rudolph Christmas in July, they play them over and over all month long, but not once do they show Rudolph the red nose reindeer?!?! Makes no sense, what is wrong with the original Rudolph?

  2. I think the movie schedule was pretty poor this year. I’m sorry but I always look forward to the 25 days of Christmas countdown and this was disappointing. 2 rare sightings of Rudolph the red Nosed reindeer on the schedule, which I didn’t catch. Not sure if the Grinch cartoon, or frosty was even on. There were endless/too many episodes of Polar Express, Home Alone, Elf. Only a rare ‘Classic Christmas’ cartoon. Please change it up and put in MORE of the classic cartoony Christmas shows. (Frosty, Grinch, Rudolph, Thank you so much:)
    Merry Christmas

  3. It doesn’t show up on the channel line up for December 14.Running a search, it only shows up one time, in November 🙁

  4. Agree- it is the one show I so look forward to seeing- holiday does not seem complete without viewing it in the beginning of dec- please show it again!

  5. Why the heck is one of the best christmas movies of all time on before Thanksgiving??? Come on really, I start setting my dvr ON dEC 1 not November!!! Please play it again!!!

  6. What!? I missed it too. It has never been on before Thanksgiving before. It is usually the week after. This is not fair! Please show it again.

  7. Rudolph is only on ONE day before thanksgiving!!!!! I missed it so now I have to wait till next year? It’s a classic, it should be on more than once. VERY disappointed…

    1. I Agree! I recorded it and my kids deleted it on accident! So much for my favorite Christmas movie of all time this year!! Completely bummed 🙁
