Best Animated Christmas Movies on DVD

I have been looking for some of the best animated Christmas movies that are available now on DVD. My granddaughter is the age to watch them this holiday season and I want to make sure I make the perfect choices. She loves to watch TV and videos now, and she loves the holidays, so this is a no brainer for me to get them for her.


After researching what is available now I went through them and looked for the classics and the ones that my kids loved and watched over and over. I looked at the ratings and comments to make sure they were really the classics. A couple were evidently not the originals and not very good, so those were surely crossed off my list! My budget was under $15 each so I could about five.

These five all fit my criteria and are the ones I am going to buy

This cartoon is a favorite in most families and has been of my my family's faves too. If you have read Dr Seuss' books you know that they are fun to read, but even better when reading them aloud. So watching the movie achieves this. Plus of course the characters really come alive before your eyes.

The is a classic Christmas movies that never goes out of style. There is also a 50th Anniversary Edition available but I did't see spending the extra $4 or so. This one looks fine.

The exception to finding DVDs that my children loved when they were young is "The Polar Express" as it didn't come out until 2004. We have all watched as adults, though and think it is a "new" classic Christmas movie.

This also isn't a classic animated movie, as they use a different technique. But still is animated, just in a different way. I am sure that my grand daughter will love it.

Talk about a Classic Christmas movie! “A Charlie Brown Christmas” has been around for 50 years and is still going strong! I think that is partly because it is not only a cute story, but it brings out the message of the true Christmas Spirit.

The music is also great — so catchy, upbeat and cute! I would hum some of the tunes during the rest of the day when we watched it. I loved to watch this movie many times at the holidays with my kids and am looking forward to seeing it with my granddaughter this year and years to follow..

My kids loved all the Curious George books, so when I originally bought this movie I knew they would love it too. And they did. Since my grand daughter also loves this silly monkey, I am sure she will love the DVD too.

After all what could be a cuter Christmas story than a silly curious monkey counting down the days until Christmas while The Man in The Yellow Hat and George are both trying to figure out what gift to give each other. They are not being very successful with this. They finally both think of the perfect gifs for each other and learn a lesson too. And the kids watching will learn this positive lesson about the joy of giving.
