You must choose one of two Animated Christmas Movies as your Champion to fight and triumph over all other Animated Christmas Movies. Your choice of Champion is either

A) Arthur Christmas (2011) - Set on Christmas Eve, the film centers on Arthur Claus, the clumsy but well-meaning son of Santa Claus, who discovers that his father's high-tech ship has failed to deliver one girl's present. Accompanied only by his free-spirited and reckless grandfather, an enthusiastic young Christmas elf obsessed with wrapping gifts for children, and a team of reindeer, he embarks on a mission to deliver the girl's present personally

OR
B) Klaus (2019) - Serving as an alternate origin story of Santa Claus independent from the historical take of Saint Nicholas of Myra and using a fictional 19th-century setting, the plot revolves around a postman stationed in an island town to the Far North who befriends a reclusive toymaker (Klaus).

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)
How the Grinch Stole Christmas (1966)
Mickey's Christmas Carol (1983)
...AND MORE

    Obviously these are grist for the grinder that is the Muppet Christmas Carol, so the weaker one goes over.

    That's live action though! Which is clearly a tag team affair with the likes of Die Hard/Lethal Weapon, Muppets Christmas Carol/Scrooged, Home Alone/Home Alone 2, etc

    Arthur Christmas has a deeply offputting art style so Klaus by default

    I have not heard this before!

    Once again, I was not expecting an early blowout. I love Arthur Christmas

    Great cast, super cool story, loved the blood feud and setting

    To engage with the thread unironically for a second, damn yeah I should check out Klaus because I have heard seriously good things

    I have a hard time leaning into casually watching Christmas movies but, if I can figure out where to legally watch it...

    Arthur's character design is bland, paint by numbers Pixar At Home shit.

    Klaus has great character design.

    The first one looks like a straight-to-video Walmart exclusive product

    Klaus has a cool artstyle and neat premise, I might actually watch it someday

    The winner was clear even before I saw the results

    Klaus unironically whips, this isn't a fair fight. Arthur should be going up against The Polar Express, that's pretty even.

    I do really like the clean style and angularity to Klaus.

    ARTHUR CHRISTMAS
    Arthur Christmas is a movie about dysfunctional family dynamics, it doesn't really need to lean on its art style all that much. Also it's clever and fun, has ridiculous tacticool home invasion elves, and a ton of heart.

    People should be aware that both these movies are fun and watchable.

    Honestly thought there'd be more decrying the Champions vs the 60s classics

    Yah, Arthur Christmas is pretty good, the art style doesn't even factor in.

    But I would take pretty much any of the champions mentioned over it, borne on tides of ages, crusted with tradition and hardened by older wars buoyed by commercials.

    Klaus made me have some weird feelings about Santa that I resented but was funny (in an Emperor's New Groove way for sure) cute and made me cry at the end

    E: also the art style was pretty

    haven't seen Arthur Christmas
