Christmas Specials

Charlie Brown ChristmasIt's the time of year when prime time television is decked out with the holly and the ivy, visions of sugarplums, and the jingle of sleigh bells.

A look back at the voices who have made Christmas television programming a national treasure and part of family holiday traditions over the years.

Quite a few of the programs are geared at children, and by virtue of that fact, the majority of shows are animated cartoons, stop motion, or classics from days or yore in the style of Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer or Frosty the Snowman.

Would Christmas be the same without Boris Karloff and his rendition of Dr. Seuss' tale How the Grinch Stole Christmas or June Foray's voice work as Aaron's mother in The Little Drummer Boy or as the heartbreakingly adorable Cindy Lou Who?

Some of these greats have eclipsed forty years of service, including the Peanuts characters in A Charlie Brown Christmas, commemorated above in a puzzle celebrating the program's Ruby Anniversary milestone.

If your voice has been immortalized as a character for the holiday season, leave a comment and let us know which shows you were in, the character(s) you voiced, and any special memories created by that role for you over the years.

Best,

Stephanie

P.S. If you have a favorite character from Christmas specials of your childhood or from the present, don't be shy - let the voice actors know and show your appreciation by leaving a comment - you never know who may be reading this blog :)
