TVscreenblankPrep And Landing:

There will be lots of disappointed children tonight who were looking forward to ABC-TV’s two back-to-back holiday specials, the classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas and Disney’s new animated entry, Prep and Landing, which are being preempted due to President Barack Obama’s address to the nation regarding plans for America’s war in Afghanistan.

All major television networks (ABC, NBC, CBS and the Fox channel) will be airing the president’s address.

Both Charlie Brown and Prep and Landing are now scheduled for broadcast on Tuesday, December 8, 2009 beginning at 8:00 p.m. Eastern / 7:00 p.m. central times.

In the meantime, here are some suggestions for special holiday viewing for your children.

When possible, ratings that designate appropriate audience age levels have been provided.

AMC Channel

8:00 p.m. National Lampoon’s A Christmas Vacation – PG-13

Chevy Chase and Beverly D’Angelo star in this 1989 slapstick holiday special when the Griswold family invites many of their dysfunctional relatives to celebrate the holiday as only the Griswolds can – lots of sight gags mixed with a sweet resolution.

Hallmark Channel

8:00 p.m. A Christmas Carol (2004) , with rebroadcast on Wednesday, December 2, at 4:00 p.m.

Kelsey Grammer stars as Ebenezer Scrooge in this classic musical retelling of a miserly curmudgeon who is visited by three spirits that show him the true meaning of Christmas. Though a bit dark for youngest children, this beautifully staged and acted film won a 2005 Emmy for Outstanding Music Direction.

ABC Family Channel

7:00 p.m. A Year Without Santa Claus – TV-G, which will rebroadcast on Tuesday, December 8, at 8:00 p.m.

Feeling rather unwanted and sad, Santa takes the day off before Christmas in this animated film; voiced by the talents of the late Shirley Booth as Mrs. Claus and Mickey Rooney as Santa.

8:00 p.m. Santa Clause 3: The Escape Claus, TV-G, with a second broadcast later at 10:00 p.m.

Tim Allen stars as Scott Calvin, aka (the real) Santa who must deal with his visiting in-laws and the real “Jack Frost,” who tries to freeze Santa out of Christmas.

To get ready for next week’s airing of Disney’s Prep and Landing, you can take a behind-the-scenes look below and share with your child.
