Christmas 2009 countdown: 4 days!

Today: Three classic cartoons that were always aired on Christmas Day when I was a kid. They aren't Christmas cartoons per se, but many readers (of a certain age) may have also seen these growing up. I thought they were really depressing at the time, but there was nothing else on TV on Christmas Day, so we watched them anyway!

The Selfish Giant:







The Happy Prince:







The Little Mermaid:

I couldn't find an embeddable version, but you can find this wonderful 1975 version of The Little Mermaid narrated by Richard Chamberlain here:
