The initial episodes of comedy web series Nostalgia Critic gradually introduced familiar elements that would later be associated with the show, particularly his appearance. The Critic started on YouTube in 2007 through the channel name "Nostalgiacritic". The Critic is uncharacteristically hyper in the first episode in comparison to later episodes. He is first seen sitting in his chair in the second episode. This episode is also the first time he wields his gun and in which his "Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to." catchphrase is first used. The character's appearance is defined in the fourth episode. Episode seven features the first "Top 11" list along with the catchphrase "Why Top 11? Because I like to go one step beyond." In April 2008, Doug Walker launched thatguywiththeglasses.com to act as the permanent home of his various content, including the Nostalgia Critic. Pokemon: The First Movie was the first Nostalgia Critic review to be originally posted to the website. Subsequently, in June 2008, Walker's YouTube channels, Thenostalgiacritic, fivesecondmovies, and newguywiththeglasses were terminated in the charge of copyright infringement and thus abolishing him from YouTube.com.

Title Length Release date
1"Transformers Review"2:16July 3, 2007 (2007-07-03)

The Critic speed-talks through a synopsis of Transformers (2007) before fainting from exhaustion at the end.

Note: In later film reviews, he says that not only have the sequels gotten progressively worse, but also the film series were bad to start with, though he at least finds this one an entertaining first effort.
2"Cloverfield Trailer"4:07April 8, 2008 (2008-04-08)

The Critic speculates, prior to its release, about the plot of Cloverfield (2008).

Note: This episode was originally posted on YouTube on July 2007. Also, as a first for the series, the opening catchphrase serves as the closing catchphrase.
3"Cartoon All Stars Drug Special"7:31April 7, 2008 (2008-04-07)

The Critic reviews Cartoon All-Stars to the Rescue (1990). He criticizes the fact that the special is about drugs, the cartoon characters' mean spirited and overly preachy nature, and a very annoying musical number. This was the first episode to be done in the Nostalgia Critic's trademark style, whereas the previous later became the basis for Doug's other web series, Bum Reviews.

Note: This episode was originally posted on YouTube on July 2007. It also introduces the Critic's opening catchphrase, "Hello, I'm the Nostalgia Critic. I remember it so you don't have to." It was the first video that Doug Walker used footage from the film he was reviewing.
4"Harry Potter Book Gathering"8:17July 22, 2007 (2007-07-22)[1]
The Critic attends a midnight launch party for J. K. Rowling's Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, the last book in the Harry Potter series.
5"Power Rangers Movie"8:47April 9, 2008 (2008-04-09)

The Critic reviews Mighty Morphin Power Rangers: The Movie (1995). He already hates the TV show and exclaims that the plot is nonsensical, criticizes the movie for having a budget wasted on pointless stuff like the opening skydiving stunt, poor special effects and how the moral is to fight without powers, yet the Power Rangers get them back eventually. However, he finds a funny scene when Ivan Ooze destroys Zordon. Special criticism is reserved for the climax, which involves the Rangers (inside the Ninja MegaFalconzord) defeating Ooze by kneeing him in the scrotum.

Note: This episode was originally posted on YouTube on July 2007. Also, in a future episode, the Critic says he enjoys the show's theme song, and this is also the first time he donned the white T-shirt and red tie, which would forever become part of his iconic appearance in future episodes.

6"Ninja Turtles Movies Review"6:21, 4:56 (original cut)
11:01 (final cut)
April 11, 2008 (2008-04-11)

The Critic reviews Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (1990), Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles II: The Secret of the Ooze (1991) and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III (1993). Despite the flaws found in the first two movies, such as the climax in the original and the toned down content in the sequel, he finds both enjoyable, with praise to the animatronics and fight scenes. However, he finds the third movie bad enough to not review it, saying he could not watch over five minutes of it.

Note: This episode was originally posted on YouTube in two videos due to YouTube's ten-minute time limit.

Note: This episode was originally posted on YouTube in October 2007. In his 2009 "Top 11 Nostalgia Critic Fuck-Ups" episode, The Critic states that Wonka's "Tunnel of Hell" was more deserving of the #1 spot.
8"Super Mario Bros. Movie"9:24October 31, 2007 (2007-10-31)[2]

The Critic reviews Super Mario Bros. (1993). He criticizes Mario and Luigi's last name (which the movie says is simply "Mario"), the plot, Dennis Hopper's performance, the fact that Mario and Luigi are father and son despite them also being brothers, suggesting incest, and that the movie has very little to do with the video game on which it is based. Special criticism is used for scenes in the movie in which Hopper says the laughable lines "Bob-omb!" and "Monkey!"

Real Thoughts: In their real thoughts video, Rob admitted that he considered the film a guilty pleasure. Both he and Doug admitted to finding humor with Dennis Hopper's performance.
9"Cloverfield"4:14January 18, 2008 (2008-01-18)[3]
The Critic reviews Cloverfield (2008), stating that it was okay, expressing rage over The Monster and re-enacting the film himself.
10"Street Fighter"8:14February 3, 2008 (2008-02-03)[4]

The Critic reviews Street Fighter (1994). He criticizes the large amount of action scenes, the confusing story, the huge cast, and Jean-Claude Van Damme's performance. However, he applauds the final performance of the late Raúl Juliá.

Real Thoughts:
11"Mortal Kombat"7:33February 3, 2008 (2008-02-03)[5]

The Critic reviews Mortal Kombat (1995). He criticizes the PG-13 rating (which led to a lack of blood-gushing violence like in the video game), Johnny Cage's one liners and some pointless fighting scenes. However, he madly praises the fighters Sub-Zero and Scorpion, and admits that the CGI-generated Goro is a decent effect.

Real Thoughts:
12"Space Jam"9:53 (original cut)
11:12 (final cut)
February 29, 2008 (2008-02-29)[6]

The Critic reviews Space Jam (1996). He criticizes the film's plot, the focus on commercialism, the jokes for not being up to classic Looney Tunes standards, Michael Jordan's acting, and the numerous up-close shots. Special criticism is reserved for the sex appeal given to Lola Bunny.

Note: In 2016, he makes a brief review of the film in the list, All the Looney Tunes Movies, where he doesn't hate it as he used to, calling it a 'product of the times that's actually kind of interesting', acknowledging it's enjoyable to look back at how dated it was. He also praised the mixing of animation and live action and even said it was better than Looney Tunes: Back in Action as it kept the Looney Tunes in the cartoon world where their zaniness worked best.

Real Thoughts:
13"Pokemon: The Movie"12:46April 20, 2008 (2008-04-20)
The Critic reviews Pokémon: The First Movie (1999). Whilst admitting he was out of Pokemon's demographic when it came out and therefore never got into the franchise, he complains that the film does not really explain the premise of Pokémon to the non-initiated. He also criticizes the undeveloped characters, and considers the message of "fighting is wrong" as hypocritical, considering that the whole point of the series is Pokémon battling each other. Special criticism is reserved for the scene where Ash, after being killed in the crossfire between Mew and Mewtwo, is resurrected by the devastated Pokémon's crying, something he finds to be highly clichéd and a terrible moral for children.
14"The Wizard"16:06May 4, 2008 (2008-05-04)

The Critic reviews The Wizard (1989). He calls it one big commercial for Nintendo, criticizing the acting, especially from the character of Jimmy, the fact that the kids act like adults and vice versa and the violent and suggestive themes. He however gives praise to the character, Lucas Barton. The episode ends him talking about where the director and the actors went onto anything successful, finding out they did go on to successful things.

Real Thoughts:
15"Top 11 Naughtiest Moments in Animaniacs"2:33May 11, 2008 (2008-05-11)

The Critic notes the top 11 most risqué situations from the children's animated series Animaniacs:
11. "You expect us poor innocent children to climb up dangerous scaffholdings and paint naked people all over a church? We'll do it!"
10. Playing Truth or Dare.
9. "I got the buns!"
8. Jumping in a car.
7. "Yakko, can you conjugate?"
6. "I'll conjugate with you."
5. "Let me go to the board and show you."
4. "Give me the bird!"
3. "What else you got in there?"
2. "I'd say puberty was inordinately kind to you."
1. "No, no, 'finger Prince.'"

Note: This is the second shortest Nostalgia Critic episode to date (the Transformers Movie review being the shortest) and the shortest review done in the traditional format.
16"Batman and Robin"17:11May 23, 2008 (2008-05-23)

The Critic reviews Batman & Robin (1997). He heavily criticizes the colorful campy feel that resembles the 1960s Batman TV series, the major departure from the previous films which featured a darker tone and well developed characters, the one-liners, numerous homoerotic overtones, clichés, and Mr. Freeze's ice puns. Special criticism is reserved for the infamous Bat Credit Card scene, which causes the Critic to go into a homicidal rant (#8 on the "Funniest Jokes" list).

Note: The Critic later ranked Batman & Robin #3 on his Top 11 Worst Sequels list. On that list, as well as in his real thoughts video, Doug did praise the set designs.

Real Thoughts:

19"Top 11 Drug PSAs"13:22June 22, 2008 (2008-06-22)

The Critic lists the top 11 drug PSAs.

11. "Be an Original" The Critic praises if for being "Short, sweet, and having a lot of energy to it."
10. "It's As Good As Saying Yes" He mainly points out the twist of the father talking to a grave of his son, but notes that this PSA is geared at parents, while most parents would have been asleep when this aired.
9. "Drugs, Drugs, Drugs" He criticizes the fact that the song was like "promoting drugs" and the fact that it talks about the good things about drugs, thus "mixing the signal".
8. "R2-D2, You Found a Cigarette" He notes that it seems outrageous having R2-D2 smoking.
7. "I Do Coke" He criticizes how weird the PSA is, since it just shows the man talking about that he does cocaine so he can work better to do more coke and progressively walks around fast in a circle.
6. "You Just Better Know What You Are Jumping Into" He points out the twist of the girl jumping into a dry pool, but mainly talks about the indentation she might have left.
5. "Snake" He criticizes the fact the Snake character was too scary for kids.
4. "I Learned It By Watching You" He notes the twist ending of the kid revealing that he learned how to do drugs from his dad, but says that if the conversation continued, the dad might have become proud of "teaching his son well"
3. "Any Questions?" He notes how popular this PSA is and the craziness of the sequel. He also comments that sometimes someone would make an egg pun afterwards.
2. "I'm Not a Chicken" He notes how the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were teaching this class and the comeback line the kid says to the bully "I'm not a chicken. You're a turkey."
1. "Dead Wrong" He notes how insane it is that Pee-wee Herman is talking to kids about drugs, but also notes about how insane his show is, as well as his 1991 arrest.

Note: This PSA was actually done as a part of Herman's sentence, which Doug fails to notice as he believes this PSA to be pointless since it was shown the same year of the arrest. This possibly indicates that Doug thinks that the PSA came first.
20"Captain Planet"13:55July 6, 2008 (2008-07-06)
The Critic reviews Captain Planet and the Planeteers (1990–96). He criticizes the overall premise and seemingly useless power of "heart", is annoyed by several of the main characters (mainly Wheeler), and finds some themes (AIDS, gang violence) inappropriate for a children's show. However, in the Top 11 Hottest Animated Women list, he did admit that Linka was somewhat attractive.
21"Double Dare"8:27July 13, 2008 (2008-07-13)
The Critic positively reviews the game show Double Dare (1986–93). Among his points, he praises the host, Marc Summers, for being able to "get into the game" despite having OCD.
22"3 Ninjas"10:46July 20, 2008 (2008-07-20)
The Critic reviews 3 Ninjas (1992). He comments on the film's blatant attempts to cash in on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Home Alone, criticizing the plot, corny dialogue, annoying characters (especially Grandpa Mori) and weird traps. Special criticism is reserved for the bullies saying "cake" where it does not make any sense.
23"Top 11 Hottest Animated Women"11:19July 28, 2008 (2008-07-28)

The Critic lists the top 11 attractive animated female characters

3. Rogue from X-Men
2. Ariel from The Little Mermaid and Jasmine from Aladdin
1. Jessica Rabbit from Who Framed Roger Rabbit

Note: In this episode, Critic states that Belle is not on the list because unlike Ariel and Jasmine, she never showed her navel. However, in an out-of-character list stating his genuine opinion, Doug listed Belle as #1 on the list. He also put April O'Neil, Harley Quinn and Rouge on his list as well.
24"He-Man and the Masters of the Universe"15:24August 11, 2008 (2008-08-11)
The Critic reviews Masters of the Universe (1987). He criticizes the film's title which lacks "He-Man" in it, numerous homoerotic overtones, Skeletor's portrayal, the subplot of the film involving Julie which he considers depressing, most of the plot having little to do with He-Man, and the moral, which he finds to be very unrealistic.
25"Follow That Bird"5:59August 18, 2008 (2008-08-18)
The Critic reviews Follow That Bird (1985). Halfway through the review, he admits he is unable to properly criticize Sesame Street as it was the first show he ever fell in love with as a child and walks out. Chester A. Bum finishes the review for $20.
26"Saved by the Bell"18:46August 25, 2008 (2008-08-25)
The Critic reviews Saved by the Bell (1989–93). He comments on the absurd stories, dated fashions and sets, obnoxious canned laughter and flat characters. However, he concludes that the show was relatively harmless.
27"Tom and Jerry: The Movie"14:16September 1, 2008 (2008-09-01)

The Critic reviews Tom and Jerry: The Movie (1992). He is upset about Tom and Jerry being able to talk and when the orphan girl Robyn Starling becomes the focus of the story (he acts as a director trying to get her to leave before eventually deciding to "rewrite" the film into being about "A little orphan trying to find her father while her aunt tries to find her. And there's also a cat and mouse in there but that no longer matters"), and also shows a strong dislike for the musical numbers and the weak slapstick. Special criticism is reserved for the scene where Tom and Jerry speak and introduce themselves to Pugsy, and sing about being friends. The only positive elements he notes are the silent scene where Tom and Jerry roam the city after losing their home and a clever in-joke with a restaurant called "Bill and Joe's", referencing Tom and Jerry's creators.

Doug later placed the review at #3 in his list of the "Top 11 Nostalgia Critic Episodes" and the Mindf*ck and Hamlet Joke at #10 in his "Top 11 Nostalgia Critic Jokes".

Real Thoughts: Doug and Rob still find the film terrible, but admit that they enjoyed it because of its absurdity. They also praise the animation, the performance of Tony Jay, and Doug mentions that he thought the voices of Richard Kind and Dana Hill fit Tom and Jerry.
28"Top 11 Saddest Moments"14:37September 9, 2008 (2008-09-09)

The Critic lists the top 11 saddest moments in nostalgic films.

1. "Every Single God Damn Disney Movie Ever Made!" (Notably The Lion King, Old Yeller and Bambi)

Special criticism is reserved for the famous death scene from Bambi when after Bambi and his dad walk away, the next scene opens with birds happily singing. At the end of the countdown, the Critic is shot in the head, and the video ends in the style of the movie. In his 2009 "Top 11 Fuck-Ups" video, he explains that he received a good deal of criticism for not including Optimus Prime's death from The Transformers: The Movie, but explains his reasoning for the omission.
29"Surf Ninjas"14:49September 15, 2008 (2008-09-15)
Continuing from the previous episode, the Critic gives a positive review of Surf Ninjas (1993), talking about obviously terrible elements such as plot holes, acting, jokes, adult humor and situations as if they were genius, before waking up from his coma, in the style of The Wizard of Oz, revealing the review to be a dream and that he in fact hates it.
30"Top 11 Nostalgic Animated Shows"14:44September 29, 2008 (2008-09-29)

Note: In his "Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog" review in 2009, Doug stated that he would place the Saturday morning Sonic the Hedgehog series as #12 to make up for not considering it in the list.
31"Kazaam"15:37October 6, 2008 (2008-10-06)
The Critic reviews Kazaam (1996). He attacks Shaquille O'Neal's acting and rapping, the numerous implications of pedophilia and the film's plot, finding the idea of Kazaam being Max's genie to be similar to slavery. Special criticism is used for a scene involving Shaq rapping when he raps, "Let's Green Egg and Ham it.", which the Critic finds unbelievably stupid.
32"Drew Struzan Tribute"5:51October 13, 2008 (2008-10-13)

The Critic salutes Drew Struzan, painter and creator of well-known movie posters. He claims that Struzan denied him an interview and recalled this instance during a rare radio interview.

Note: It's revealed in the 2009 episode "Top 11 Nostalgia Critic Fuck Ups" that the Nostalgia Critic actually used a couple wrong posters, explaining that Drew Struzan himself sent him an email stating that the posters he used in the episode were one of the closest group of posters that were correct that he ever seen.
33"Halloween '08 Special"8:16October 21, 2008 (2008-10-21)

34"Double Dragon"15:35October 28, 2008 (2008-10-28)
The Critic reviews Double Dragon (1994). He criticizes the film's nonsensical plot, ignoring its source material from the video game it is based on, the pointless celebrity cameos, using elements from popular films, bad puns along with the dialogue, and lack of character development. Special criticism is reserved for the scene where the actual Double Dragon arcade game is in the background, and how the movie takes place in the "futuristic" year of 2007.
35"Top 11 Underrated Nostalgic Classics"16:32November 4, 2008 (2008-11-04)

The Critic lists the top 11 overlooked films.

11. The Rescuers Down Under
(1990) Acknowledging it′s a Disney film most people forget about, he heavily praises the animation, voice acting and suspense. Later, in his Disneycember review of the movie, he considers it superior to the original film.

10. Tiny Toon Adventures: How I Spent My Vacation
(1992) He praises the animation and storylines, which he finds hilarious. Eventually, he wishes it got a theatrical release.

9. The Rocketeer
(1991) Calling it ″a Disney version of Indiana Jones″, he praises the story, action scenes and characters, especially Jennifer Connelly.

8. The Prince of Egypt
(1998) Acknowledging that not many people talk about it because of comparison with the 1956 film The Ten Commandments, he nevertheless considers it great and impressive, praising the acting, animation and songs, as well as the fact that the movie tries to do something different, and that ″it tries to capture the human emotion of the story and combine it with the sheer scope of its biblical size″.

7. Explorers

6. The Iron Giant

5. Flight of the Navigator

4. Return to Oz

3. Babe: Pig in the City

36"Howard the Duck"16:45November 11, 2008 (2008-11-11)
The Critic reviews Howard the Duck (1986). He finds the film's main problem to be that it was too dark, violent and sexual for a PG rating. He also criticizes the plot, implausibility, acting and puns, as well as finding the film "silly, stupid, mean-spirited and surprisingly boring".[7] Special criticism is reserved for a scene when the audience can clearly see a female duck's naked breasts.
37"Mortal Kombat: Annihilation"21:31November 17, 2008 (2008-11-17)

The Critic reviews Mortal Kombat: Annihilation (1997). He criticizes the film's plot as just exposition, poor special effects, complicated story, and presence of characters who had died in the original film, saying that despite still disliking the first Mortal Kombat, he considered it "a masterpiece" compared to the sequel. The only positive thing he notes is the killing of Johnny Cage.

Note: Bargo's "dirty little kitty" rant with Sonya and Mileena fighting is placed at number 2 on Doug's "Funniest Jokes" list.
38"Godzilla"21:55November 26, 2008 (2008-11-26)
The Critic reviews Godzilla (1998). He confesses on disliking the director, Roland Emmerich for past disappointing films, criticizes Matthew Broderick's performance and the film's script, and finds scenes similar to other films, such as Jurassic Park and Star Wars. Special criticism is reserved for Broderick's line, "That's a lot of fish."
39"Top 11 Disney Villains"17:24December 3, 2008 (2008-12-03)

The Critic lists his top 11 favorite Walt Disney Animation Studios villains.

11. Cruella de Vil from One Hundred and One Dalmatians
He praises her psychotic behavior and her goal to make dog skin coats, calling her ″the epitome of style meeting psycho″.

10. Jafar from Aladdin
He praises this character′s design and voice, as well as his magical abilities and personality.

9. Scar from The Lion King
He admits that he puts him low on the list, lamenting that Scar is just another power-hungry dictator, who, unlike most villains, stops being interesting once he gains power, instead turning into ″a whiny prima donna″. However, he does praise his elegance and slimy evil nature, captured by his voice actor Jeremy Irons, as well as the fact he′s the first villain to actually succeed in killing one of the main characters.

8. Shere Khan from The Jungle Book
Admitting that this character is what Scar – a big cat himself – should′ve been like, he heavily praises his personality, being a powerful, menacing and bloodthirsty tiger who keeps his sense of honor and dignity, even when being lied to, captured by his voice actor George Sanders. Later, in his Disneycember review of the film, Doug says Shere Khan was the best thing in it.

7. Ratigan from The Great Mouse Detective
He admits finding this villain to be probably the funniest of them all, even surpassing Hades and Captain Hook, heavily praising the fact that his voice actor is Vincent Price, enjoys being evil, laughing all the time, as well as the fact that he constantly hides his inner beast with class and sophistication until the climax.

6. Ursula from The Little Mermaid
He praises her personality and design, as well as her song Poor Unfortunate Souls, later putting it at #5 in his top 11 villain songs.

5. Gaston from Beauty and the Beast
He praises the fact that this character doesn′t start out as a villain, but rather as an egocentric and narcissistic jerk, whose eventual greed and pride turn him into a killer.

4. Frollo from The Hunchback of Notre Dame
He gives huge praise to his personality, being a villain who believes his actions of murder, arson and lust are acts of good Christianity.

3. Lady Tremaine from Cinderella
He praises her control over the main character despite lacking magical powers and minions.

2. Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty
He praises her magical abilities, cold heart, elegant grace, diabolical nature and sophisticated personality, especially turning the harmless act of not being invited to a birthday party into an act of war, and combining the quiet evil with the loud, monstrous and terrifying evil.

1. The Devil from Fantasia
He says this character is ″evil incarnate″, heavily praising his personality and goal to bring spirits back to life so he can destroy them again.

Note: the Critic erroneously refers to Chernabog from Fantasia as ″The Devil″, which he later admits was an error in the 2010 episode Next Top 11 Nostalgia Critic Fuck-Ups, but still defends his naming choice.
40"Super Mario Brothers Super Show"15:36December 16, 2008 (2008-12-16)
The Critic reviews the Super Mario Brothers Super Show (1989). For its Mario cartoons, he criticizes the inconsistent plots, mostly bad parodies of popular films, giving the villain a different name, dialogue being heavy on Italian food puns, flat characters, and cheap animation though he does give some praise to the casting of Lou Albano as Mario. For its Zelda cartoons, he credits it for having a solid plot and for making Zelda an active character instead of a damsel and for giving her a father, but criticizes the portrayal of Link, his signature catchphrase and the relationship between him and Zelda, the other characters, the absence of the third Triforce, and the same cheap animation as the Mario cartoons.
41"Top 12 Greatest Christmas Specials"20:47December 22, 2008 (2008-12-22)

The Critic lists the top 12 films, episodes and television specials about Christmas:

  • 12. Mr. Bean's "Merry Christmas, Mr. Bean"
    • He praises Mr. Bean's innocence as well as the reliance of mostly visual humor. He also finds a scene involving Bean getting his girlfriend a ring hilarious.
  • 11. South Park's "Woodland Critter Christmas"
    • He considers it the best Christmas special South Park has ever done praising the funny surprises as well as jokes involving the narrator of the episode.
  • 10. Disney's The Little Match Girl
    • He finds the short one of the best animated shorts Disney has produced considering it both sad and uplifting even admitting that he did cry during the special. Walker would later list the specials ending as his sixth crying moment in a future list.
  • 9. Home Alone
    • Though he admits that he isn't a fan of some of the slapstick and jokes, he considers the film very likable praising the films Christmas related material, the characters of Kate and especially Kevin as well as Macaulay Culkin's performance.
  • 8. Miracle on 34th Street
    • He considers it an entertaining movie for kids praising the acting (mainly from Edmund Gwenn and especially Natalie Wood) and also finds it much better than the remake (where he particularly criticizes Mara Wilson's performance) though he does admit that the mail scene is dated.
  • 7. The Small One
    • He finds the short timeless and calls it an enjoyable and charming Christmas special considering one of Don Bluth's best works. Walker later considered the short "perfect" when talking later about Bluth in 2015.
  • 6. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation
    • He compares the film to Home Alone where it has both the charm and annoyance of staying home for Christmas where he particularly praises the details in a Christmas vacation (particularly the families conversations) and the character of Clark Griswold.
  • 5. It's a Wonderful Life
    • He calls the film a classic praising its good will, innocent characters and the inspiring and heartwarming story though he does admit that he finds the alternate version of Mary sexist.
  • 4. Dr. Seuss' How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
    • He considers it the best adaptation of the famous book praising the character of the Grinch as well as the detail showing he steals Christmas, the great ending, and the clever storytelling of Dr. Seuss.
  • 3. A Charlie Brown Christmas
    • He finds it a nice and simple Christmas special and compares it to a Christmas pageant praising the music, the characters, the straight to the point story, as well as the effort put into the special.
  • 2. All adaptations of A Christmas Carol
    • He admits that all of the versions of the story have something good in them (even if they overall aren't very good) praising the timeless story, and different variations of Scrooge (considering George C. Scott and Alastair Sim his personal favorites).
  • 1. A Christmas Story
    • He finds it the definitive Christmas classic praising the great humor, heart, innocence and how it represents children.
42"Jingle All the Way"20:38December 28, 2008 (2008-12-28)

The Critic reviews Jingle All the Way (1996). In addition to mocking the actors, he considers it one of the worst Christmas specials, criticizing the absurd and overly manic situations of the movie, and the seemingly materialistic message of the film. Special criticism is reserved for the entirety of the climax which is set at the Christmas parade, especially the scene where it is revealed that the Turbo Man costume can actually fly.
