TV Tonight: Shrek the Halls


It's not even a week since Thanksgiving, but Christmas special season is well underway on ABC. The network aired the classic Charlie Brown Christmas on Tuesday, and tonight brings our first look at the newest animated holiday special, Shrek the Halls.

The whole original Shrek gang — including Mike Myers, Eddie Murphy and Cameron Diaz — is around for this half-hour special, which finds Shrek struggling to get into the holiday spirit. Who would have known Shrek wasn't much for decked halls and mistletoe? Of course, Donkey, Puss in Boots and the rest of the clan will rally the silly ogre into yuletide shape before the end of the half-hour. Maybe this will turn out to be a holiday classic — but even if it's not, we can recover by watching How the Grinch Stole Christmas immediately after. (Pushing Daisies follows at 9 p.m., while Private Practice takes the night off.)

Will you be tuning in for Shrek's take on the Christmas season? You can check out a preview of the special on ABC's site.

I watched A Charlie Brown Christmas last night with my parents...hilarious. My dad was laughing like it was new, LOL. So we all have a date AGAIN for tonight to watch How the Grinch Stole Christmas!!! I can't believe these Christmas time classics came out back in the 60's!!!

musiclvr — it's the animated one, but I'd be surprised if someone isn't showing the Jim Carrey version before Christmas

I may watch it. Is it the cartoon version or the version with Jim Carrey of How The Grinch Stole Christmas coming on afterwards? I hope the Jim Carrey version, I LOVE it.

It irritates me that they're airing this so early. When I was a kid, they didn't show these specials until the week or two before Christmas. Maybe I'm extra bummed because I was looking forward to watching it with my 3 year old daughter, but we have plans tonight! Oh well.

I'm actually looking forward to this. It'll be nice to have a good round of Christmas specials before my weekly dose of Pushing Daisies. Anything to help me get in the spirit- ever since I moved to the land of eternal sunshine I find it hard to sing Christmas carols while cruising with my windows down in 70 degree weather.
