Gotta include the "Nice Copy" Star Wars Holiday Special, no?

The only problem with that is we have a Rifftrax-baked-in version of the SWHS that we play every year. Even if we created our own from the raw files, the audio also riffs on commercial breaks, so it's important that the right recording be used.

OK, I had probably too much fun (job, schmob) researching holiday episodes and TV specials. Maybe some of these will strike the right tone. (I've missed many of the past Christmas Marathons, so apologies if they're already in heavy rotation.)

Annie Oakley - Santa Claus Wears a Gun (1956)

The Forest Rangers - A Christmas Story (1963); Santa McLeod (1965)

Christmas With The Addams Family (1965)

Wild Wild West - The Night Of The Whirring Death (1966)

Thunderbirds - Give or Take a Million (1966)

The Six Million Dollar Man - A Bionic Christmas Carol (1976)

'Twas the Night Before Christmas (1977 TV special) - starring Paul Lynde, Martha Raye, Anson Williams, and many others

The Dukes of Hazzard - The Great Santa Claus Chase (1980)

The Leprechauns' Christmas Gold (1981) Rankin/Bass starring Art Carney

Terrahawks - A Christmas Miracle (1983)

G.I. Joe - Cobra Claws Are Coming To Town (1985)

Tons of WTFery in the Lawrence Welk Christmas specials. Here's one from 1966.

Very nice, thanks much! I'm sure we can put some of those things in.

Alright so when is this happening?

Usually December 24 and 25, but looking at our inventory we've got a ton of content, we might could start it, maybe with only sporadic attendance by crew, on December 23. That is kind of a pie-in-the-sky idea, but we've done it before.
