Pee Wee Herman, Alf and even He-Man had holiday TV specials in the '80s. But were they any good? (One is just downright bizarre. Okay, so all three were.) Here are the holiday TV specials we grew up with in our beloved decade - along with three other classics from previous decades.

How did we go this long in Stuck in the '80s history without honoring "The Untouchables?" Maybe we were just waiting for the right moment - like the flick turning 30 years old.

Now, on Thriller's 35th anniversary, we go back in time to honor the album, the artist and the episode we recorded 11 years ago. Listen for some familiar voices and names and just smile.
