Christmas at the Arnold House isn't full of merriment in both of these episodes.In the 1968 episode where Kevin was in junior high, the family is trying to convince their dad to buy a color TV.Kevin is also trying to find the perfect present for Winnie.It is a bittersweet episode as Kevin remembers about Winnie's older brother, Brian, who died that past year.The high school episode is about how Kevin's father deals with running his own furniture shop and taking a risk by leaving his old job.Kevin also tries again to find the perfect present for Winnie.Isn't that cute!These episodes will make you laugh, cry, and relive old Christmases.

Wow! This tape would make an excellent gift for all Wonder Years fans! In the first episode, sweet 12-year-old Kevin Arnold is trying to find a present for his girlfriend Winnie and at the same time, the whole Arnold household is hoping Jack, the father will buy them a color t.v. for Christmas. In the end, Kevin learns that Christmas is more than presents and is about the memories and special moments in life. In the second episode, Kevin is older (sixteen-years-old) and is trying to find the perfect present for Winnie again. After the family, suffers a financial blow because Jack's partner decides to not invest in the furniture company, the holiday spirit is again being tested. I enjoyed the tapes so much and I watch them over and over. Definately a good tape.

Ok. It's been forever since this show went of the air. Other shows which don't even match up to the Wonder Years have come out on seasonal DVD, then why is the hold up on this??? This show deserves to be called a classic and the best way to do that is by "laminating " it with the release of seasonal DVD. I'd buy the whole series in a heart beat. WE WANT MORE OF THE WONDER YEARS!

I bought this Christmas Special when it was first released
on VHS, just in time for the holidays. It was a present for
my brother, who is as sincere a fan of the show as I am.
Although the compilation did bring back great memories of
The Wonder Year's Christmas, I was kind of hoping for more
content. The episodes (2 Christmas specials) were great!
But if you are looking for a 'Best of' or full seasons,
then you are probably better off waiting. This DVD only got
watched ONCE by my brother. If you are looking for a good
Christmas gift, this one won't hold up under the tree.

I have enjoyed watching The Wonder Years from a toddler to a teen and tears still roll down my cheeks when i see the reality of the pain in the world that this program shows. Through Kevin's eyes I have seen the Vietnam War. I have felt love, rejection, acceptance, care, compassion and loss. The Wonder Years is the truth of the world then and now.

When I first saw an episode of the Wonder Years, I didn't connect with it much. I thought it was a show for kids, one that didn't have much bearing on me. As I watched it more, especially on Nick at Nite when there was nothing else on, I began to realize that this show was unique. Not only did it appeal to younger audiences with its light-hearted humor, but that it even appealed to middle to late teenagers like me, with its displays of Kevin's relationships, his feelings, and his growth as a person. This show deals with practically every difficulty that adolescents must face, from strange parents to changing friends. It is rare that a show has actually been able to reach out and touch my heart, but it seems that this show is able to do it whenever I watch it. My only wish was that they had the entire series available, so that I could watch it from start to finish.

This show is tied up in legal clearances for music rights, any legal seasonal sets are FAR in the future.

This Holiday collection is one of only two legal releases of this classic series. Yes, some of the background music has been changed but it is not noticable.

Any 'complete series' sets sold elsewhere are bootlegs. This is the real thing!

This television show was a great family program with a lot of heart. This DVD contains two Christmas Episodes. They will tug a bit at your heart because they are very sentimental. This comedy/drama was a very good television show and was worth the price of the DVD to see it again!!
If you're a fan of the show, buy this DVD and if you're not- you should be!!
It is a simple DVD and although the audio is in Stereo it still sounds good.
I highly recommend this DVD to any fan of the show!!!!!

The Wonder Years- Holiday episodes gives us a chance not only to view "the wonder years" again, but it also allows us to view what it was like growing up. Wether it was during Kevin's time or not. And as he goes through the struggles that always seem to evolve during the holidays, we remember the struggles and joys of our holiday memories. This video Brings out emotions that you may not know you had.
