Christmas is just around the corner, which means it's time to wrap presents, help your mom bake festive cookies and maybe even go caroling. But it's also a great time to relax on the couch and watch some great holiday classics. Check out Kidzworld's picks for the best Christmas cartoons.
Mickey's Christmas Carol
In Disney's adaptation of Charles Dickens' classic tale, Mickey Mouse stars as an overworked and underpaid Bob Cratchit who works for the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, played by Uncle Scrooge McDuck. On Christmas Eve, Scrooge is visited by his dead partner and the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Future, who teach him a lesson in goodwill and the gift of giving.
How The Grinch Stole Christmas
You can't let the holiday season pass by without watching this Dr. Seuss classic! Fed up with the festive celebrations in Whoville, the bitter Grinch, with a heart two sizes too small, tries to steal Christmas away from the Whos as they snooze. Just watching the mean greenie dress up as Santa Claus and tie antlers onto his dog is enough to fall in love with this great Christmas cartoon!
A Charlie Brown Christmas
This television classic features the Peanuts characters in the story of Charlie Brown's problematic efforts to produce a school Christmas pageant. Everybody's on board: Lucy, Snoopy, Schroeder, Pig-Pen, Peppermint Patty, but the most touching moment comes from Linus, who highlights the show with his tender recitation of the [kwlink 7310]nativity story[kwlink]. This Christmas classic, complete with the debut of Charlie's famously pathetic Christmas tree is a must-see during the holiday season.
Mickey's Twice Upon A Christmas
Disney's beloved characters go 3-D in this new, computer-animated sequel to Mickey's Once Upon A Christmas. The movie is split into five short cartoons, including Belles on Ice, which showcases Minnie and Daisy's rivalry on the skating rink, and Donald's Gift, in which the temperamental duck gets overly frustrated by the holiday season. In the end, Mickey and the gang learn the gift of friendship and the true meaning of Christmas.

When a sleigh bell falls from the sky, Princess Crystal believes it came from one of Santa's reindeer and sets off for the North Pole with her sister, Princess Lucinda (voiced by Haylie Duff). Along the way, they run into hungry predators, greedy pirates and sneaky penguins who want to take over their parents' throne.
Barbie in A Christmas Carol

Frosty the Snowman
To make up for the fact that her students are in school on Christmas Eve, the local schoolteacher hires magician Professor Hinkle to entertain the kids. Unfortunately, he's not very good. Frustrated in his attempt to pull a rabbit out of his hat, he throws it away. Outside, the kids build a snowman and when the hat blows onto it, Frosty comes to life. Professor Hinkle decides he wants the hat back so he can make money off of its magical properties, but the kids want to save their new friend. When the temperature starts to rise, the children come up with a plan to take him to the North Pole, where it's always cold. Frosty the Snowman, like the song it is based on, is true holiday classic.
