The holiday ads have started and there are at least two new holiday specials in the universe: Prep and Landing from Team John Lasseter, the Pixar mastermind, and Phineas and Ferb On Christmas Vacation from the Phineas and Ferb crew. And I have to admit, I’m looking forward to the Phineas and Ferb one; Team PF is in the zone. Lasseter and co. will have to do a little more convincing. Sure, the animation’s always pristine, perfect and all that, but I’m usually allergic to the mood that comes with it.

Now Phineas and Ferb I was prepared to hate at its launch; yes, it was partly envy, there they are with a show on the Disney Channel and I still think there’s no real reason for Perry and Doofenshmirtz, but if you don’t support comedy being about creating your own 5 jokes and pounding them ’til they’re funny, then you just don’t support comedy. And Phineas and Ferb is doing a great job with the comic palette they’ve set themselves up with, adding in the more than occasional darn catchy tune (Busted‘s my favorite). So, we’ll take that vacation.

What else is on the holiday watch list. Well, there’s always Desk Set, which has the best office Christmas party, the original Bishop’s Wife, the animated Grinch Who Stole Christmas, Love Actually, the Kim Possible Christmas episode, and I’ll get back to you on the rest, once I figure them out.

Meanwhile, have a great Thanksgiving.
