Once upon a time we were all small and a lot less jaded — and that’s when the holidays were the most fun. We’ve been getting into the spirit of the season by examining holiday traditions and curating some fun gift guides, but today we’re taking it back to the golden age of cartoons. These vintage animated shorts are probably before your time, but they should help inspire memories of old-school holiday celebrations and make you feel like a kid again.
A group of South Pole creatures build a snowman and pelt it with snowballs. The pummeling brings the snowman to life, and the animals soon feel his monstrous wrath. The 1940 film is a great early horror-themed holiday short.
