Christmastime Dollar DVDs at Target

Found a bunch of PC Treasures dollar DVDs at Target. Happily they're now in thin plastic cases instead of those horrid empty cardboard boxes.

There were many common PD titles that I apparently have become completely immune to as I don't remember the titles, so here are the nine I picked up:

-Christmas Cartoons
Christmas Comes But Once a Year
Santa's Suprise
The Toyland Caper
Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer
A Christmas Fantasy
The Shanty Where Santy Claus Live
Christmas Fairy Tale
The Snow Man
The Star Bethelehem
Christmas Visit(that weird Russian one)

-Children's Christmas Matinee
Santa Claus Conquers The Martians
The Red Skelton Show "Freddie and the Yuletide Doll" (23 min)
Somewhere in Dreamland (9 min)
The Kids in the Shoe (7 min)
Jingle Bells (3 min)

-Christmas Cinema
Beyond Tomorrow
The Living Bible "Birth of the Savior"
Winter Draws On
Oh Come, All Ye Faithful

Star Odyssey
Rocky Jones: Space Ranger "Escape Into Space"(27 min)
Superman "Electric Earthquake"
Felix The Cat "Astronomeous"
The Three Stooges "The Littlest Martian

Christian The Lion
The Great Dan Patch

The New Adventures of Heidi

Divorce His; Divorce Hers: Part One
Divorce His; Divorce Hers: Part Two

Lovers And Liars
The Driver's Seat (find this one and buy it.)

43: The Richard Petty Story
The Wrestler

Most are very pixelated an except for those last two, nothing to really sneeze at. Shit, I'm just glad they dropped those empty boxes.

East West Dollar DVD Christmas titles
