That can only mean one thing: It’s a new Debatables, where Cricket and I expend way too much effort arguing minor matters in children’s literature.
This months topic:
The Best Christmas TV Special Based on a Children’s Book
In making our choices we had to adhere to two rules:
- The book had to be published before the special was produced.
- We couldn’t choose How The Grinch Stole Christmas.
I selected A Wish For Wings That Work
For some mysterious reason Cricket couldn’t embed the WFWTW video on her blog so I’m posting it here. Give it a watch! It’s a delight!
And Cricket chose Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer, which started out as a coloring book before it became a song and a Rankin-Bass stop motion cartoon. So Cricket’s section technically applies.
I’m turning off the comments on this post because the arguments are taking place on Cricket’s blog. So head on over, read our arguments, and leave an opinionated comment!
I know I’m the underdog here, so do give Opus a watch before passing judgement.
Happy Holidays All!
