In the second and last SANTACLYSM of 2017 we review two obscure Canadian animated specials. The first, A Cosmic Christmas (1977), is about 3 Magi from space and is probably one of the worst specials we've ever watched. The second, Christopher the Christmas Tree (1993), is about a really dumb tree who is both too small and too big to be a Christmas tree. It is also terrible, but the result is probably one of the funniest reviews we've done. Merry Christmas!
Santaclysm returns for another year of bizarre Christmas movies. In this installment we take a look at the oft-mentioned 1967 traditionally animated Rankin/Bass classic Cricket on the Hearth.
In this episode: It's a Christmastime marathon of Rankin/Bass specials. Every year we devote a handful of episodes to Christmas movies/specials. This year we only had time to record one, so we made it count. This is a massive 3 hour episode wherein we discuss 6 specials from top to bottom. The specials inculded are Leprechaun's Christmas Gold, Nestor the Long Eared Christmas Donkey, The First Christmas: The Story of the First Chrismast Snow, The Little Drummer Boy (1 & 2), and Pinochio's Christmas. If some of those things sound bizarre to you, it's only because they are. I hope you and enjoy this episode and have a great Christmas. Also: we say Dynamation several times when we meant to say Animagic. That is a thing that no one but us would notice or care about anyway, but there it is.
In this episode: we dive into one of the worst things we've ever watched on JATHE. Can you handle Alf's Special Christmas. We'll see you next year, Merry Christmas everybody!
In this episode: we discuss a fourth season episode of the Six Million Dollar Man. Can Steve Austin save Christmas? You bet your bionic ass he can.
In this episode: after a brief discussion about recent events in our lives, we jump back into SANTACLYSM with an oddity of 1984: the Mr. T and Emmanuel Lewis Christmas team-up TV special.
In this episode: SANTACLYSM RETURNS. The guys find a weird sense of closure in the feature length special "RUDOLPH AND FROSTY'S CHRISTMAS IN JULY" from 1979.
In this episode: HAPPY NEW YEARS! In the epic conclusion to SANTACLYSM '14 the group sits through Rudolph's Shiny New Year from 1976.
In this episode: the group sits down to view what they assume is a run of the mill Christmas slasher from 1980 called "Christmas Evil," but instead are treated to a fantastically insane over-looked horror flick that is actually titled "You Better Watch Out."
In this episode: SANTACLYSM 2014 rolls along with the 2010 Dutch horror film SINT (released in the States as SAINT NICK).
In this episode: Santaclysm is back for 2014! This time we watch through a series of vintage silent shorts from the 1900's through the 1920's. All of the shorts that we watch can be found on the DVD A CHRISTMAS PAST released by KINO VIDEO.
In this episode: It's the final SANTACLYSM of 2013. Horde Prime is out to find the spirit of Christmas and CRUSH IT. Who will stop him? He-Man? She-Ra? SKELETOR!? Tommy, Greg, Skippy, and Josh discuss the He-Man and She-Ra Christmas Special from 1984.

In this episode: Tommy, Skippy, and Greg watch the 1984 TV adaptation of A Christmas Carol starring George C. Scott. Listen as Tommy uses words such as "like," "cool," "great," and "...um.." to describe a 170 year old story written by Charles Dickens.
In this episode: A continued celebration of our Savior, Santa Claus. Tommy, Skippy, and Josh watch two animated classics and dissect them in what is probably one of the more pointless hours that the internet has to offer. Santa Claus is Coming to Town (1970) and A Year Without a Santa Claus (1974) are reviewed.
In this episode: The epic conclusion to our end of the world celebration of Santa Claus. Tommy / Skippy / and Greg watch the much beloved but undeservedly so Christmastime sci-fi "adventure" B-move SANTA CLAUS CONQUERS THE MARTIANS (1964).
In this episode: Tommy is joined by B-movie blogger Skippy the Skeptic and friend of the show Some Guy Named Greg as they spend the last day of existence celebrating Father Christmas himself. In Pt. 3 we watch the 1959 Mexican film "SANTA CLAUS," also known as "Santa Claus Conquers the Devil."
In this episode: Tommy is joined by B-movie and skeptics blogger Skippy the Skeptic and Some Guy Named Greg as they spend the last day on Earth celebrating Father Chistmas himself. In Pt. 2, they are almost at a loss for words after viewing the 2010 Finnish film RARE EXPORTS and it's shorts.
