While there were not a ton of Christmas-themed releases in the 1960s, the films that did come out are genre classics. Charlie Brown and the Peanuts gang appear in A Charlie Brown Christmas, while Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer and Frosty the Snowman star in films of their own. In addition, one of the Christmas season’s best villains, The Grinch, shows up in the cartoon version of Dr. Seuss’ How the Grinch Stole Christmas! The film was later remade with Jim Carrey in the title role. And we certainly can’t forget the most recognizable Christmas figure of them all-- Santa Claus!
