As a kid on Long Island, I remember WPIX very fondly for this. As an adult in
NC I own a digital copy that I just finished an hour ago. Always a beloved
classic!

When I was a kid, the 1934 version of Babes in Toyland was shown Christmas
morning every year. Sad that they've changed it to a Thanksgiving movie, sort
of ruins it for me. Thanksgiving was the parade, then movies in the afternoon
until they were userped by football. Born in '56, I don't remember WABD, but
the early days of WNEW are still fresh in my mind, unlike where I left my car
keys.

Wpix still shows it on Christmas. It was on last year. And technically WNEW
still exist, but it has some kind of regional agreement to air Fox broadcasting
in the tristate area. I think WOR still exists too, but I will have to check on
that. Still, all of these stations are a pale almost nonexistent shadow of what
they once were- especially around the holidays.
