Before I even start looking for these I know that it's going to be hard. For one searching youtube will be difficult because there are thousands (if not millions) of videos tagged as 'Christmas.' But the most difficult aspect of this search will be the fact that most Saturday morning cartoons tried to keep away from any calendar related themes for maximum repeatability. I will reluctantly have to admit specials into this roundup or I probably wouldn't find anything.
Tweety and Sylvester (1952) - Gift Wrapped (with original commercials)
Batman (1968) - The Cool Cruel Christmas Caper
Fat Albert's Christmas Special (1977) - Minisode
The Smurfs Christmas Special (1982) - Good News Makes the Bad News Go Away
ABC Saturday Morning Christmas Bumper (1985)
The New Scooby Doo Mysteries (1984) - The Nutcracker Scoob
More next week!
