Peter Pan, Victoria’s Secret and Grumpy Cat among big holiday TV specials
There are several that I’m interested in watching.
Grumpy Cat’s Worst Christmas Ever
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
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!
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
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.
