Overview

This special holiday-themed collection selects from the Paramount vaults eight very special episodes of vintage TV favorites, beginning with " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas" (original airdate: Dec. 24, 1955), an episode of The Honeymooners in which Ralph Kramden discovers the unique gift he's keeping hidden from Alice is identical to the one Trixie just gave her. I Love Lucy's 1956 "I Love Lucy Christmas Show" (Dec. 24, 1956) is a clip-heavy show flashing back to the program's earlier years, while The Andy Griffith Show's "A Christmas Story" (Dec. 19, 1960) finds Sheriff Andy trying to figure out a compassionate way of letting the moonshiner he's got in lockup properly celebrate the holiday. In "The Voice of Christmas" (Dec. 19, 1969), from the first year of The Brady Bunch, laryngitis figures to foil Carol's big "O Come All Ye Faithful" solo at church, until little Cindy seeks Santa's intervention. As the title suggests, "A Full House at Christmas" (Dec. 12, 1978) from Taxi's first season finds Alex locked in a high-stakes poker game at the garage with Louie's even-less-pleasant younger brother. The Dickens-themed "A Keaton Christmas Carol" (Dec. 14, 1983) from Family Ties finds Alex visited in his dreams by ghosts of holidays past, present, and yet to be. Joe, Brian, Helen, and Roy all decide to crash Fay's holiday gathering in the "Terminal Christmas" (Dec. 21, 1990) episode from the first season of Wings. And finally, in "Miracle on Third or Fourth Street" (Dec. 16, 1993) from the first season of Frasier, a down-in-the-dumps Frasier Crane decides to have Christmas supper in a diner, only to realize he's forgotten his wallet. Fortunately, new friends and the spirit of the day intervene.
