Peter Pan, Victoria’s Secret and Grumpy Cat among big holiday TV specials

With Thanksgiving out of the way, the Christmas season has officially begun. And so have all the holiday season TV specials.
There are several that I’m interested in watching.

Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever

“Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever” is almost certain to be terrible. But hopefully it’s so bad it’s great.
The made-for-TV movie premieres Saturday on Lifetime and features Aubrey Plaza of “Parks and Recreation” as the voice of Grumpy Cat.
I love cats, so I’m along for the ride.

Toy Story That Time Forgot

“Toy Story That Time Forgot” is the latest special based on the beloved Disney-Pixar “Toy Story” movies.
I loved last year’s Halloween-themed special, “Toy Story of Terror!” So I’m really looking forward to this show. It premieres Dec. 2 on ABC.

Peter Pan Live! 

Last year’s “The Sound of Music Live!” was a ratings smash, so NBC is following it this year with “Peter Pan Live!”
This production stars Allison Williams as Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up. I think NBC is trying to sexually confuse me by casting an attractive 26-year-old woman as a young boy.
It also stars the incomparable Christopher Walken as Captain Hook. Am I the only one who thinks he looks like Lo Pan from “Big Trouble in Little China”?
And did I mention this grand musical theater production is live? So anything could happen. It airs on Dec. 4.

The Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show 

The annual “Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show” airs on Dec. 9 on CBS.
This year’s show was filmed in London and features musical performances by Taylor Swift, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande and Hozier.
 Oh, the show also has some of the world’s most beautiful women parading around in underwear. So there’s that.
