7. Santa Pac’s Merry Berry Day (2016)

Pac-Man has been one of the most popular characters in the massive realm of video games for as far back as anyone can remember, and it was only a matter of time before he made his way to the small screen. Just like Sonic the Hedgehog and the Super Mario Brothers beforehand, this joystick-controlled hero received an exciting and goofy family-friendly animated series available for Netflix subscribers to enjoy under the title Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventures. The show has spawned two fun-filled holiday specials, including one for Christmas called Santa Pac’s Merry Berry Day. The 44-min special aired in 2016 on the streaming service.

The Netflix holiday special follows Pac as he is saddened on a day all the other Pac-Worlders are happily decorating for Berry Day. He misses his parents, and when they mysteriously arrive, he isn’t sure if it’s really them or a trick from his notorious enemies. And that’s not all the main player has to deal with as Betrayus and Dr. Slimestein launch a plan to get rid of Berry Day by capturing Santa Pac and his Round Deer. Pac and his friends must once embark on an adventure to stop any nefarious plans and save Berry Day. The end result is an outstanding Christmas experience the entire family will relish.
