A few months ago, Mike "Technodunce" Bellamy made a horrifying confession: he'd never seen any of the classic Rankin & Bass Christmas specials in their entirety.

In the picks, Kenny digs the Blu-Ray of The A-Team, while Blake goes with a double dose of Christmas Comics, Supergirl #59 and the graphic novel Amelia Rules!: A Very Ninja Christmas.
