10. DreamWorks Home: For the Holidays (2017)

There is nothing better than celebrating the yuletide spirit with spectacular holiday-themed animated specials, and DreamWorks Home: For The Holidays is an absolute delight from start to finish. The compelling and comical Christmas cartoon caper that aired exclusively on the popular streaming service on December 1, 2017, is based on the 2015 DreamWorks Animation film Home, which starred Jim Parsons and Rhianna and takes massive inspiration from its spinoff TV show Home Adventures with Tip & Oh, a Netflix original series that had four successful seasons.

DreamWorks Home: For The Holidays tells a remarkable holiday-themed tale following Oh’s first noel experience on the planet Earth with Tip trying to make sense of human traditions to her extraterrestrial companion. The dynamic duo from the infamous franchise gets into some fun-filled shenanigans resulting in a really good time for anyone who watches the holiday saga. Singer superstar Kelly Clarkson also stops by as an animated version of herself in the Netflix exclusive performing “Christmas is a Feeling” and “Oh Holy Night.” But that’s not all, as Sonic the Hedgehog voice actor and Parks and Recreation’s Ben Schwartz is also in the lineup, bringing a cartoon version of himself to life singing “Eight Days of Latkes” successfully spreading ample amounts of Hanukkah cheer. It seems there is something for everyone in this 45-minute special.
